Why does the military like arming people that aren't America?
Before 2008, the Pentagon was trying to provide enough munitions for Iraq to fight for decades. Who are they supposed to fight? Each other?
And now, there's talk of arming the Libyan rebels, people who even Geraldo Rivera thinks are unprofessional. Maybe if we stopped giving other people weapons, they wouldn't have anything to shoot at us with when they inevitably turn on us.
