No matter who did what to who or how.
It should be considered a conflict of interests considering profit is derived from death.
I do not profit off of death nor will I do business with people who do that either.

One group blames a lack of funding and the other blames a lack of action.
In politics, power is gained through action and inaction, blame and deniability.
