Arms merchant to the world
TO THE EDITORS:
I imagine many readers noticed the irony in the extensive article about China becoming the world's fifth- largest arms exporter, while the world's top arms exporter -- the United States -- with six times the volume of China's was mentioned in one sentence.
I suggest that all arms sales, both export and domestic, be counted as negative numbers in our Gross National Product. This might help people to understand that making and selling these weapons contribute to instability, and will eventually help to wreck our society and our world.
