  • 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...

    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.

  • Germans up in arms about weapons sales to Turkey

    Guided by its catastrophic history of warmaking, modern Germany has long been reluctant to send troops to foreign conflicts. But the country has not held back on supplying the world with weapons: It is the globe’s fifth-largest arms exporter . Now, however, events both at home and abroad are forcing the country to reckon anew whether that role needs to be reconsidered. After Turkey began an assault on Kurdish militia Jan. 20, German news wires reported this week that German-made Leopard-2 tanks may have been used in the offensive, which displaced an estimated 5,000 people and killed at least two dozen civilians in Syria's northwest Afrin region, according to U.N. reports. The revelation prompted calls, particularly from Germany’s left parties, for an end to arms sales to Turkey.

    More indications have been appearing that show the world is waking up to the truth about a deadly war that Saudi Arabia has waged against Yemen. Germany has announced that it plans to stop sales of weapons to Saudi Arabia. The decision appears to be connected to the kingdom’s role in leading a war that has claimed thousands of lives in Yemen and left the nation destroyed. It drew an immediate expression of praise from the Amnesty International which called on other countries to do the same. The key arms exporters that the Amnesty said needed to stop sales of weapons to the Saudis now are the US, UK, and France. But the current signs show these countries cannot forsake the economic profits of selling arms to what they see as the biggest weapons market in the Middle East region. And tha...

They account for almost ninety percent of global arms sales. Also the top ten largest arms makers accounted for half of global sales in 20-12, with US Lockheed Martin keeping the top spot.

    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."

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.

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.

Donald Trump: Arms Dealer-In-Chief. Ana Kasparian, Amberia Allen, and Maytha Alhassen, the hosts of The Young Turks, tell you why he thinks weapons sales will get him reelected. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. Join TYT: https://goo.gl/v8E64M “President Donald Trump had one question for Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc: Why wasn’t his country buying more American military equipment? For Trump, a self-styled traveling salesman, crisscrossing the region to reverse decades of trade deficits, Vietnam’s decision to buy arms from Russia was incomprehensible, almost insulting. Never mind that U.S. law prevented such sales until last year. Trump reminded Phuc that he’s been president for 10 months, according to two people who requested anonymity to discuss a private meeting. What was he waiting for? He needed quick wins, he told his team in the room, because he’d be running for re-election before anyone realized. And weapons sales, in Trump’s view, are good for his approval ratings. The meeting was a microcosm of the president’s 11-day tour through Asia, a marathon trip where Trump was repeatedly lavished with flattering gestures by foreign leaders, but frustrated in his desire to score quick wins on trade or North Korea that would buoy him politically back home. Asian nations were looking for signs Trump hadn’t abandoned the region when he pulled out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal in January. The White House seemed to suggest the sheer length of the trip was proof enough, with both Trump and his aides referencing it again and again.” Read more here: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-11-14/trump-in-asia-kept-one-eye-on-re-election-with-push-for-deals Hosts: Ana Kasparian, Amberia Allen, Maytha Alhassen Cast: Ana Kasparian, Amberia Allen, Maytha Alhassen *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

Oxfam has hit out at the British government's position on weapons sales to Saudi Arabia, as accusations continue that civilians have been deliberately targeted as Yemen's conflict continues. The Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, will be in Riyadh for talks about - amongst other things - Yemen, where the war has intensified this month. But is he, as Oxfam says, in denial and disarray over weapons sales to Saudi Arabia?

Guided by its catastrophic history of warmaking, modern Germany has long been reluctant to send troops to foreign conflicts. But the country has not held back on supplying the world with weapons: It is the globe’s fifth-largest arms exporter . Now, however, events both at home and abroad are forcing the country to reckon anew whether that role needs to be reconsidered. After Turkey began an assault on Kurdish militia Jan. 20, German news wires reported this week that German-made Leopard-2 tanks may have been used in the offensive, which displaced an estimated 5,000 people and killed at least two dozen civilians in Syria's northwest Afrin region, according to U.N. reports. The revelation prompted calls, particularly from Germany’s left parties, for an end to arms sales to Turkey.

More indications have been appearing that show the world is waking up to the truth about a deadly war that Saudi Arabia has waged against Yemen. Germany has announced that it plans to stop sales of weapons to Saudi Arabia. The decision appears to be connected to the kingdom’s role in leading a war that has claimed thousands of lives in Yemen and left the nation destroyed. It drew an immediate expression of praise from the Amnesty International which called on other countries to do the same. The key arms exporters that the Amnesty said needed to stop sales of weapons to the Saudis now are the US, UK, and France. But the current signs show these countries cannot forsake the economic profits of selling arms to what they see as the biggest weapons market in the Middle East region. And that, at the cost of civilian lives lost more and more by the day. The UK has so far sold above four billion pounds worth of weapons to Saudis Arabia since the kingdom started its deadly war on Yemen in early 2015. Saudi Arabia is in fact London’s biggest single export market which purchased more than one billion pounds only last year. This has already caught the attention of human rights organizations. They have accused the government of British Prime Minister Theresa May of courting favor with the Saudis at the expense of civilian lives. But criticisms like this have so far fallen on deaf ears. Another key guilty party in sales of weapons to the Saudis is the United States. In its latest move to the same effect, the administration of US President Donald Trump has moved to ease regulations for exporting arms to Saudi Arabia. This is seen in line with Trump’s campaign promise to create more jobs in the US by increasing sales of goods and services abroad. But again Washington has blatantly closed its eyes on the eventual costs of this policy. It does not appear that the war the Saudis are pushing ahead against Yemen would end anytime soon. And that promises a dramatic rise in casualties and heavier destruction over a future not too far. This makes it even more mandatory for the world to unite and press the countries that are selling weapons to the Saudis to stop exporting arms to the kingdom.

American and European arms producers dominated global weapons sales in 20-12, with three hundred ninety five billion dollars. According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, of the top one hundred arms makers, forty two are based in the US, one in Canada and thirty in Western Europe. They account for almost ninety percent of global arms sales. Also the top ten largest arms makers accounted for half of global sales in 20-12, with US Lockheed Martin keeping the top spot.

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.

The inability of the Palestinian Security forces to act and quell the weapons flow from Egypt to Gaza and the constant inner fighting between Hamas and Fatah factions has paid its toll. The failure of the PA to pay its employees, coupled with the vast amounts of money smuggled into Gaza by Hamas government officials to boost terror cells operating in Gaza has led to total chaos and anarchy.05.10.07.
