Isn’t it ironic?

Campaigners are noisily calling for gun control at home in the USA while abetting the precise opposite abroad---arming the world…arming the world (including dictators and outlaws in unstable regions and countries). 

Mealy-mouthed deceivers collect social merit points in the US homeland for decrying gun sales while profiting off a deathly hypocrisy in distant lands. 

Isn't it ironic, this military industrial psychosis? Not only ironic, tragic. 

The ironic tragedy goes largely unnoticed at home.

The following excerpt is taken from Nepal's Improbable Maoists (July 29th, 2012): "'Light arms' are the flouted 'Weapons of Mass Destruction' with an estimated 300,000 deaths annually worldwide from gunshot wounds (and over a million people maimed) according to the Small Arms Survey by a Geneva think-tank.
Incongruously, UN Security Council members dominate world arms transfers, over 75% going to developing nations and areas that are politically unstable and rank poorly in corruption indexes. Arms suppliers irresponsibly turn a blind eye. The United States is the foremost dealer, with deliveries valued at $8.6 billion in 2010, accounting for 39.2% of worldwide distribution to developing areas.
Former US Secretary of Defence Robert McNamara confessed about US involvement in Vietnam, 'We were wrong, terribly wrong. We owe it to future generations to explain why'. He was equally emphatic on Iraq: 'It’s just wrong what we’re doing. It’s morally wrong, it’s politically wrong, it’s economically wrong.'”
