The Business of War: SOFEX

Created on Saturday, 12 April 2014 11:33

SOFEX is one of the places where the world's generals go to buy everything from handguns to laser-guided missile systems. It stands for "Special Operations Forces Exhibition Conference" and it's essentially a trade-show where just about anyone with enough money, can buy the most powerful weapons in the world. To quote this video's presenter: "It's the business of war. All the generals coming with billions upon billions of dollars of taxpayer money (yes, your money too), to buy weapons, to fuck shit up."

What should be more than obvious to you, after you've watched this video, is that peace is very bad for business.

And people still wonder why the world is in the state it's in.
