Lord Of War – Who Will Inherit The Earth?
Editor’s Note: Something to think about as Iraq is again spiraling into chaos, and the hundreds of thousands of lives lost, and the trillions of dollars spent on the country since the 2003 invasion amount to nothing. We have two of the U.N. security council members (U.S. and U.K.) whom we can directly thank for this awful mess.
“You know whose going to inherit the Earth? Arms dealers. Because everyone else is too busy killing each other. That’s the secret to survival. Never go to war. Especially with yourself.”
The 2005 film “Lord of War” is based on actual events. While private gunrunners continue to thrive, the world’s biggest arms suppliers are the U.S., U.K., Russia, France, and China. They are also the five permanent members of the U.N. security council.
