Response to Just what you didn't want to see..
You knobends quoting http://projects.sipri.se/armstrade/Trnd_Ind_IRQ_Imps_73-02.pdf
Please note the disclaimer;
"Note: The SIPRI data on arms transfers refer to actual deliveries of
major conventional weapons. To permit comparison between the data on
such deliveries of different weapons and identification of general
trends, SIPRI uses a trend-indicator value. The SIPRI values are
therefore only an indicator of the volume of international arms
transfers and not of the actual financial values of such transfers. Thus
they are not comparable to economic statistics such as gross domestic
product or export/import figures."
This does not refer to non-conventional weapons, dual purpose imports, nor the value of arms traded but the volume of weaponry. So you morons do these figures mean anything. Also bear in mind that weapons are routed through third parties consistantly, and sub contracted.
Get your facts straight.
Are you Hoon in disguise?
