A Petition Gladly Signed. We need to stop saying if you want a war we will supply you with a weapon like a sword match. Bravo Nancy for the post.

If our weapons are left behind, they need to be self distructable and non usable for anyone else.

Our nation has always loved to give dictators weapons so that they can kill their own people. We sold Saddam Mustard gas and we seem happy to look the other way when it comes to someone making a buck.
This sort of thing really should stop. It is not good for our image, or for the world

Thank you dear Nancy. Excellent post.

I am amazed at the double standards; weapons and dollars to oppressive regimes and bombs dropped on innocent people in countries who have decent leadership. It only makes sense when you see who is for the 'new world order' and who is not collaborating with it.

Oh, oh. Now we'll have the gun nuts & NRA complaining about their rights again. The gun/ammunition war profiteering lobby is very powerful to our sorry congress. Money runs the show in D.C.

it may not only be our government, but the free enterprise system. Maybe a new motto" Dictators don't kill people, American weapons do". And just who do we think is arming the drug cartels in Mexico? Must be Santa Claus! Easter Bunny? Tooth Fairy?

Very important petition, thanks for posting it.
But am I being a fool to think Israel might be included in the spirit of this petition?
Thought so.

I'd like to reward dictators with weapons.

Bring in the most abused of their peoples. Have a stockpile of weapons handy.

Let them enjoy revenge.

This never should have started. This is like giving a pyromaniac a lighter and standing him in an empty house. A sure receipe for disaster.
