Egypt, Bahrain and Israel (in Gaza) being just three of the countries
It is now apparent that the US has, for decades, been supplying a number of foreign states with warplanes, tanks, missiles, rockets and other military equipment that have been used for violent internal repression. Egypt, Bahrain and Israel (in Gaza) being just three of the countries now known to have used US supplied armaments to kill civilian demonstrators and/or pro-democracy activists.
America, the world’s most powerful democracy, has clearly been responsible for this reprehensible conduct throughout a number of different administrations including those of both Bush and Obama. The only viable explanation for such self-defeating and undemocratic action by both Republicans and Democrats is that they have succumbed to powerful pressure from politically-motivated, minority lobby groups representing foreign interests, in the House and Senate.
Until the American electorate wakes up to that which is tragically being done in its name, we in Europe, can only look forward to a nuclear-armed world that will eventually explode in our children’s faces, if not in ours.
