Just curious... Because I figure bombs are made to be dropped which means weapons manufacturers need people to be killing each other in order to stay in business.

I know as far as small arms go like rifles, handguns, machineguns, etc... an awful lot of their work is done by small machine shops all over the place. These machine shops will mill, cut, bend and work just about anything for anybody for any reason so war or peace they'll still have plenty of work. The base heart and soul of the small arms companies, even the huge names like Colt, Sig, Glock, are generally very small with only a handful of employees. During peace-time there is still a substantial civilian market home and abroad and police and military and feds. They all require new guns every so often.

As far as bomb makers go I imagine it's similar just on a bigger scale.

I should add, Colt had to lay-off a substantial number of employees after 1994. Not because of relative peace-time but because of Clintons AWB. Thanks Clinton. We didnt need those jobs or anything. They were nice high-paying jobs too.

There has never been a time when the world is not in conflict. Just because there are no publicized wars in the news doesn't mean there is no war. Believe me they always make there money.

Unbelievable how people can be so blind to the fact there are people making money off of things like war and the murder of innocent human life. There are people that are so greedy they do not care about anything ANYTHING as long as their pockets are being filled. I'll never understand it. And I hope to stop it. Yes... It is possible. Anything is. One foot in front of the other..

Ya it's sickening the "Profits" in killing people
When the system and our way of live is "monetary"
"Profits" the bottom line regardless what you do to earn them
I know of one percent of the population that doesnt go to war.
They're the ones making big profits lining up cushy deals on death.

So since we are all in agreement, why do we allow it?

Last I heard the government is suppose to represent its people.

Government should fear its people for we have the power to replace them.

We have to get organized.

They get in the fetal position and suck their thumbs.
Then they get their PR agents and spies to start the seeds of the next conflict or war. Oh yeah, they also sell arms to other countries that are at war at the time. Believe me, they make enough profit during war time that they survive the down times in between.
