My argument is strategic, moral and economic there is no 'or'..

Edit: I did previously ask you some questions, but I think it’s easier if I just tell you what I think about this.

You can either have a moral problem with arms sales. That’s a coherent position. You don’t like arms sales, fine.

Or you can have a strategic problem with how we do it. Which would be ‘we shouldn’t sell arms to SA because they are Evans.” Again, fine.

Or you can have a economic argument... “to maximise profit we should sell to Iran, not SA.”

But as I understand your argument it is.

You don’t think the arms trade is legitimate but you think it should continue
We should sell arms to SA, but not too many and nothing that may be used against British troops
We should sell arms to Venezuela, despite the fact it would piss off our best ally
We should maximise profits from arms sales.

I’m not trying to be facetious, I just really don’t get your position.
