If it was a different country it would probably be used in the UN as evidence of terrorist activity.

Carl, you are watching some scary stuff. As for the second video: These people should be on the receiving end of this nonsense.

Because they're having fun making noise shooting and blowing up inanimate objects? It's the jump from objects to people where it gets scary.

Carl - some people would say Oklahoma is a different country.

Man, I love the telesales-spoof. Spot on. And yes, sales of arms is BIG Business which is never really publicised. It is also the single biggest source of high-level bribing I know of, and since it is so tightly interlinked with high politics, I do not think any politician is spontaneously going to inject transparency. Whenever Chirac or Blair go to China and come back to have a military order or some civilian planes, how many people have been bribed? More frighteningly, most newspapers in France belong to big industrial groups who also make loads of weapons : dassault and lagardere. Scary, huh?

Do any of you know any authoritative source on volume of weapons sold, who buys, etc?

http://www.caat.org.uk/ has some reports and figures per region.
A lot to read... unfortunately.
