Good morning ladies, (and a few gentlemen). I've been reading some very upsetting discussions in here about the terrible wars in Gaza and other places. On the TV and the radio there's pictures and reports of innocent little children killed and maimed and other awful things that us here can't imagine ever happening in our 'green and and pleasant land'.
And as I was thinking about it all it seemed to me that no matter how big the quarrels between all these countries is, these awful things wouldn't be nearly so bad if the leaders of these countries couldn't get hold of weapons. So I did a bit of googling. And I was well shocked. Our country is only next to America in selling weapons. It's 15% of all weapons sold overseas. And they do it often at 'arms fairs'. There's one at Farnborough, which I thought was only about an air display.
I also found a group called www.caat.org.uk/issues/arms-fairs/
It's really shocking.
