  1. Stop exporting weapons!
    or even better:
    Stop making them!

    Weapons do not lead humans to any victory,
    but to all their defeats.

  2. I agree with Loam, not selling weapons to one country but selling them to others seems naive and hypocritical. Are we to believe that the weapons being used in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Palestine etc. are somehow more moral than those being used by Saudi Arabia in Yemen? Just take a glance at the cities and towns in Syria, look at the deaths in that country alone, consider the displacement of millions of ordinary people from that country, and we can point the finger at Saudi Arabia? War is murder for no other reason than power and resources, there are no moral wars carried out by any state. It is the slaughter of ordinary people for the benefit of the rich and powerful.
