New York Times:
U.S. is Top Arms Seller to Developing World
The United States maintained its role as the leading supplier of weapons to the developing world in 2006, followed by Russia and Britain, according to a
Congressional study to be released Monday. Pakistan, India and Saudi Arabia were the top buyers. The global arms market is highly competitive, with manufacturing nations seeking both to increase profits and to expand political influence through weapons sales to developing nations, which reached nearly $28.8 billion in 2006.
