SOFEX: The Business of War (VICE News)

VICE News gives us twenty minutes inside the world's largest exhibition for war.  The military industrial complex, a $350-500B industry, on stage with 300 generals from 85 countries in Amman Jordan.  Special Ops Forces Exhibition.  With the security market growing from $180B to $400B in the next four years, these weapons are being used more on the home country than on foreign targets.  As the Afghan soldier that has just completed his second tour of duty said, "It's like everybody's real cordial with each other.  But like at the end of the day we're buying weapons to destroy each other... It's really not that glamorous.  This shit fucking kills people." Original Post HERE
