Cameron trailing UK merchants of death around the Middle East was a deeply embarrassing display of the Conservative party's close connections with greedy private business. However, where I would disagree with you is over the motivation. They're all Conservative Friends of Israel so it's not Israel they're trading for fat Arab weapons contracts, it's their basic human moral principles. Mind you, half of the Conservative ministers are neo-cons so that's hardly surprising.
