  • Selling Weapons: It's Good for Business (Excerpt from 'Rearming Iraq')

    As violence escalates across the Middle East and North Africa, the United States remains the largest exporter of weapons to the region, and private US defense companies and contractors have opened local offices as the demand shows no sign of abating. VICE News traveled to this year's International Defense Exhibition and Conference in the United Arab Emirates capital of Abu Dhabi to examine the competition between arms manufacturers vying for a greater portion of the lucrative market. From Abu Dhabi we traveled to Iraq, where US weapons have fallen into the hands of non-state actors such as the so-called Islamic State militant group, Kurdish Peshmerga, and militias aligned with the Iraqi government. Rather than block sales, the US government and others actively promote them — ensuring th...

    Self-defense items were reportedly flying of the shelves of Berlin-based store 'Soldier of Fortune', which specialises in weaponry, Wednesday, as sales of defence equipment continue to skyrocket in Germany. The growth in arms sales is purportedly related to fears of increasing refugee numbers, with many Germans conflating the recent influx of migrants with an increase in crime. Owner of the shop, Pavel Sverdlov, said that business is currently booming. After receiving a fresh delivery just the day before, Sverdlov pointed at the display case saying, "Normally it's completely full of 20, 30, kinds of gas and Zubehor pistols but now we're practically sold out." Selling an array of weapons including guns, knives and even swords, Sverdlov said that the type of clientele visiting his shop ha...

The UAE is part of the Saudi-led coalition that has been carrying out airstrikes in Yemen for nearly three years.

The report said that the sales were driven by countries in the Gulf region, where tension centred around potential military action against Iran has been building. The biggest customer for the US arms industry was Saudi Arabia, according to the report. All in all, the US sold 78 per cent of the world's arms in 2011.

The countries that export the most military weapons to the rest of the world. With US President Trump requesting a 10% boost in defense spending, and China having nearly doubled its military expenditures by the end of the decade, the world is rapidly becoming more militarized. The SIPRI study: http://bit.ly/2lcyd1b SIPRI's searchable database: http://bit.ly/2p16QKG Subscribe to TDC: https://www.youtube.com/TheDailyConversation/ Video by Bryce Plank and Robin West Music: "The Framework" by Jingle Punks — YouTube Audio Library Script: The world is becoming more militarized. President Donald Trump has requested a ten percent boost in defense spending, China will have nearly doubled its military expenditures by the end of the decade, and — with the impetuous Trump occupying the White House — conflict zones from the Korean Peninsula to Syria seem more likely to descend into open warfare than they did under the vigilant command of President Barack Obama. In these geopolitical games of chess, let’s review where the pieces on the board — the weapons systems — are coming from. These are the top ten countries that export the most arms according to the authority on this topic, the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute. Before we begin, a few important points: the data does not include spending on support services for these increasingly high-tech systems, which is now the dominant aspect of military spending; companies — some state-owned — are the primary providers of these weapons; and we’re using the average of the five most recent years to give the rankings more stability. Israel’s arms industry is ranked tenth. Its exports surged above $1.2B for 2016, three times what it was just two years earlier. Part of this is increased sales to India, Israel’s biggest customer. Israel’s Aerospace Industries just finalized a deal worth $2B to provide air and missile defense systems. Ninth is Ukraine. Naval vessels were its primary military export until a contract with the Chinese dried up in 2015. Despite its ongoing conflict with Russia, Ukraine continues to sell it more and more arms. Aside from Thailand, the Indians and Vietnamese are also regular customers. Italy, the world’s eighth-leading arms exporter, does regular business with the United Arab Emirates. Leonardo S.p.A. — Italy’s leading defense contractor — recently cut a deal to sell the UAE eight of its brand new P180 Avanti IIHammerheadUnmanned Aerial Vehicles for $347 million. Seventh is Spain. It’s defense industry is concentrated heavily around two key markets: aviation and shipbuilding. State-owned Navantia is in the midst of delivering three Hobart-class destroyers to the Royal Australian Navy. The first of the 147.2 meter ships is currently conducting sea trials as it nears completion. The UK is the world’s sixth-ranked arms manufacturer. It’s largest defense contractor, BAE Systems, is the third-largest in the world. It’s supplied The Royal Saudi Air Force with 72 Eurofighter Typhoons as part of the Al Yamamah deal that guarantees the UK government 600,000 barrels of Saudi Arabian oil a day. The Germans have slipped from third to fifth in the last five years as Chancellor Merkel’s government has blocked the sale of certain weapons systems to countries with questionable human rights records like Turkey, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Brunei. It is instead selling more to allies like South Korea and Greece. Like the Germans, fourth-ranked France’s arms exports also declined during the last five years. President Francois Hollande came under heavy pressure from his NATO allies to cancel the sale of two Mistral-class amphibious assault ships to the Russians due to the crisis in Ukraine. Those ships instead were sold to Egypt. China’s third-ranked defense industry is surging, rising from the sixth position just five years ago. The Chinese understand that in geopolitics, controlling the sale of military hardware is often a government’s most valuable bargaining chip. What’s interesting is the Chinese don’t — or can’t — make sales to its global rival, the United States, or its regional rival, India. The only NATO nation China has ever exported arms to is Turkey, but even that stopped in 2013. Russia is second. Its main customer, India, now buys just half as many Russian made weapons systems as they were buying five years ago and, overall, Russia’s arms sales are down 30% from their peak. After Putin’s actions in eastern Ukraine, the US, NATO, and their allies used a combination of tools, including sanctions, to punish Russia.

As violence escalates across the Middle East and North Africa, the United States remains the largest exporter of weapons to the region, and private US defense companies and contractors have opened local offices as the demand shows no sign of abating. VICE News traveled to this year's International Defense Exhibition and Conference in the United Arab Emirates capital of Abu Dhabi to examine the competition between arms manufacturers vying for a greater portion of the lucrative market. From Abu Dhabi we traveled to Iraq, where US weapons have fallen into the hands of non-state actors such as the so-called Islamic State militant group, Kurdish Peshmerga, and militias aligned with the Iraqi government. Rather than block sales, the US government and others actively promote them — ensuring there will be enough arms to fuel the region's wars and revolts for years to come.

Self-defense items were reportedly flying of the shelves of Berlin-based store 'Soldier of Fortune', which specialises in weaponry, Wednesday, as sales of defence equipment continue to skyrocket in Germany. The growth in arms sales is purportedly related to fears of increasing refugee numbers, with many Germans conflating the recent influx of migrants with an increase in crime. Owner of the shop, Pavel Sverdlov, said that business is currently booming. After receiving a fresh delivery just the day before, Sverdlov pointed at the display case saying, "Normally it's completely full of 20, 30, kinds of gas and Zubehor pistols but now we're practically sold out." Selling an array of weapons including guns, knives and even swords, Sverdlov said that the type of clientele visiting his shop has changed, and that the demand for less lethal alternatives such as electro shockers and pepper spray has increased. "Normally our customers are young men, but from August, September, older people are coming to us more women, or some men with their wives, their daughters," he said.

INTRODUCTION: President Donald Trump has clinched a $350 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia over the weekend during his visit in Riyadh; $110 billion of that figure will take affect immediately. The U.S. State Department said in a written statement that the arms package “supports the long-term security of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf region in the face of malign Iranian influence and Iranian related threats.” Saudi Arabia one of the primary destination for U.S. arms sales, according to the Council on Foreign Relations, with the Kingdom purchasing nearly 10 % of U.S. exports from 2011 to 2015. The arms package represents an enhancement of Saudi Arabia's military capabilities as tensions flare in the region, with the U.S. viewing the Saudis as a cornerstone in efforts to check the global ambitions of Iran. Lockheed Martin, Boeing and Raytheon are seen as the biggest beneficiaries as per experts and their stock price have risen sharply after the deal. In this video, Defense Updates provides viewers with the list of 5 most important weapons being sold by US to Saudi Arabia as part of this deal. Lets get started. PAVEWAY GUIDANCE SYSTEMS The U.S. has sold precision-guided bombs and technology to the Saudis as far back as 2008, but the kingdom has reportedly been badly in need of a resupply since its campaign in Yemen kicked off two years ago. “Paveway” guidance systems “convert thousands of dumb bombs into smart bombs.” Paveway kits attach to a variety of warheads, and consist of a semi-active laser (SAL) seeker, a computer control group (CCG) containing guidance and control electronics, thermal battery, and pneumatic control augmentation system (CAS). M1A2 MIAN BATTLE TANK Saudi Arabia will get 133 new Saudi-specification M1A2S main battle tanks. 20 additional tanks will replace those from the Saudis fleet that were lost in combat, possibly against Yemen. The M1A2 is an improvement on the M1A1. Significant upgrades include the re-designed Commander’s Weapon Station (CWS). The M1A2 is arguably one of the most sophisticated tanks the world, and it’s much more advanced than Iran’s Karrar. The tank sale also comes with M88A1/A2 Heavy Equipment Recovery Combat Utility Lift Evacuation System (HERCULES). HERCULES can be used to tow damaged tanks from the battlefield for repairs. Other support equipment and training will also be part of the package. The M1A2 will give Saudi Arabia a definitive edge in case of ground battle. CH-47F CHINOOK Riyadh will get around 48 CH-47F Chinook cargo helicopters. The iconic twin rotor heavy-lift helicopter is a battle proven machine that has flown countless missions into warzones from Vietnam to Afghanistan and Iraq. While the original Chinook first flew in 1962, it has undergone several upgrades, and is now one of the most modern heavy lift choppers in the world. CH-47F Chinook is able to carry 33 troops plus 3 crew, with a maximum gross weight of 50,000 pounds, and maximum cruise speed of 160 knots. The deals also include 112 Lycoming T55-GA-714A engines that the Chinooks use, 58 AN AAR-57 Common Missile Warning Systems, and 48 M240H 7.62mm machine guns with spare parts and other hardware. MULTI-MISSION SURFACE COMBATANTS The Saudis will be getting some “Multi-Mission Surface Combatants,” or MMSC ships, which are based on the Freedom-class, primarily built by Lockheed Martin. The Multi-Mission Surface Combatant (MMSC) is a lethal and highly maneuverable multi-mission surface vessel capable of littoral and open ocean operation. I It has a nautical range of 5,000 miles and can go as far as 30 knots per hour. The MMSC utilizes the COMBATSS-21 Combat Management System, built from the Aegis Combat System Software library. The MMSC is armed with multiple weapons system which include 57mm Mk110 deck gun, SeaRAM, port and starboard 20 mm remote guns and a forward centerline 8 cell MK 41 Vertical Launch System equipped with RIM-162 Evolved Sea Sparrow Missiles. The MMSC is also equipped with the AN/SLQ-25 Torpedo Defense system TERMINAL HIGH ALTITUDE AREA DEFENSE Perhaps the most controversial missile defense system in the world, Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, or THAAD, will be sold to Saudi Arabia. THAAD, is an anti-ballistic missile system, which is designed to shoot down short, medium, and intermediate range ballistic missiles in their terminal phase. THAAD uses a hit-to-kill approach that is the missile carries no warhead, but relies on the kinetic energy of impact to destroy the incoming missile. It has a range of 200 km. U.S. recently deployed the THAAD to South Korea to protect it against North Korean missiles. This is seen as part of the effort to provide Saudi Arabia with a cover against the missiles of Iran, its main rival. Though there are plenty of critiques about the system, it is highly advanced and would be a powerful addition to Saudi Arabia’s ballistic missile defense.

https://democracynow.org - Norway’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Wednesday the country will stop supplying weapons and ammunition to the United Arab Emirates, citing “great concern” over the humanitarian crisis in Yemen. The UAE is part of the Saudi-led coalition that has been carrying out airstrikes in Yemen for nearly three years. Meanwhile, the U.S. and Britain continue to supply the Saudis with billions of dollars’ worth of weapons. The U.S. also provides logistical military support to Saudi Arabia. The Saudi air campaign has killed more than 10,000 civilians in Yemen and displaced more than 3 million. More than 80 percent of Yemenis now lack food, fuel, water and access to healthcare. We speak with journalist Iona Craig, who was based in Sana’a from 2010 to 2015 as the Yemen correspondent for The Times of London. She was awarded the 2016 Orwell Prize for her reporting on Yemen.

The country sold $66bn worth of arms last year, tripling the number it sold in 2010. The previous record was $31bn in 2009. The report said that the sales were driven by countries in the Gulf region, where tension centred around potential military action against Iran has been building. The biggest customer for the US arms industry was Saudi Arabia, according to the report. All in all, the US sold 78 per cent of the world's arms in 2011. Russia was a distant second, with $4.8bn in arms sales.
