Spoils of War: The Human Cost of America's Arms Trade

Program #TIRJ001. Recorded in Boulder, CO on April 09, 1998.

The U.S. now exports more weapons than all other countries combined. The President and his trade negotiators actively promote arms sales. The deals are huge money makers for U.S. corporations. But the buck doesn't stop with profits. Regimes like Turkey and Indonesia turn those weapons against their own citizens. The price in moral degradation, human rights and loss of lives is high. Should the U.S. reexamine its role as the #1 global arms trafficker? Interviewed by David Barsamian.
