Obama TRIPLES arms sales

Friends,

Obama TRIPLED arms sales ….

And I thought he got the Peace Prize for being a man of peace and not a man of war?

Maybe his arms deals is why we are still in Afghanistan?

What do you think?

Why do you think reporters aren’t talking about this on the evening news?

International weapons sales by the United States tripled last year to a record high of $66.3 billion, according to a congressional report that noted big fighter jet and helicopter purchases by Saudi Arabia.

The data by the non-partisan Congressional Research Service noted an “extraordinary increase” over 2010, saying the total U.S. figure accounted for almost 78 percent of sales globally.

 Russia followed the United States at $4.8 billion with France at $4.4 billion, according to the report, “Conventional Arms Transfers to Developing Nations, 2004-2011.”
