My answer to What do Americans think of placing the THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) system in South Kor…
Answer by Ken Larson:
We sell too many weapons of warfare to other countries. Many find their way into to wrong hands, as evidenced by the horrendous misuse and abuse of our weapons in the Middle East.
“U.S. sales of conventional weaponry worldwide through a Pentagon agency totaled about $40 billion in 2015.
However, the $40 billion was only a fraction of the more than $200 billion in arms estimated to have been sold separately by U.S. defense firms in 2015 under commercial licenses.”
We and our large defense companies who are experiencing the best years in their history need to understand that military victory is dead.
Other solutions are far more productive and the technology “Bang for the Buck” must be directed to areas like U.S. infrastructure, education and medical care.
