Flying the Flag - Arming the World

The arms industry is considered so important by the Brittish government that it consumes almost half of all research and development funds. Strangely it produces not consumer goods that people want, but machines that hardly any of us use or want to use. Moreover, for all its' preeminence, its' future is uncertain and depends to a large degree on secret deals with some of the most corrupt and brutal regimes on Earth.

There is a tremendous amount of money in just business of destruction. If you want to understand war you should understand the business behind it. Pilger once again explores the topics that no one seems to explore and asks the questions that no one seems to ask. The lessons that were taught then are just as relevant now, especially in the US.
