Arms for Peace
An article posted on SpaceDaily.com's 'Space War' Section is dubiously titled "Washington Seeking to Calm Mideast with Arms Sales". The article claims that the Bush Administration wishes to pump billions of dollars in arms into Egypt, Israel, Saudi Arabia and other gulf states in order to counter the influence of Iran and Syria. At least that's the theory. Still, the title of the article alone reminds me of one of the party slogans from Orwell's 1984, "War is Peace." Is it any wonder I feel manipulated?
