    Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afhghanistan and other places in between, wherever the USA has been since WWII, it has consistently sold arms and supported warfare. An article not long ago reported that the Pentagon is even now planning where the wars will continue after Afhganistan is no longer profitable. To understand Washington Rightists, one need only stop listening to the politcial rhetoric about peace, and start watching what the USA is doing to encourage war. . We sell arms to Israel, Palestine, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and anyone else who is willing to be a customer. Washingon Rightists will even use American taxpayer's money to pay the bill if the intended recipient can't afford our high prices. The rule of thumb is: the money must flow, the sale of arms must go on, regardless of the cost in human lives. And if that requires the deployment of US troops somewhere, then so be it. The government of the USA is as addicted to making war as any junky is to his drug of choice. It is, after, all, good business. Tea, anyone?
