British Companies Exporting Arms To Syria


British arms companies export military equipment to Syria and other Middle Eastern countries, despite British government promises to block such transactions. This was reported by the newspaper Financial Times, with reference to a published report of the Committee on arms export controls of the House of Commons of the British Parliament.

Besides Syria, British lawmakers are concerned over supplies to Egypt and Bahrain of chemical products, cryptographic equipment and armored vehicles.

The report also contained criticism of the government for classifying sniper rifles, shotguns, pistols, machine guns and armored vehicles as “products to control the behavior of the crowd.”

    Super powers first create a conflict, develop self proclaimed rebellions, provide them funds and arms. When the conflict between police/army gets bloody ruling regime is alleged of killing innocent people. Then a plan is made to impose war on the regime under the patronage of UN. All this is aimed at keeping arsenal factories running overtime.
