Arms Fair

Sharp-suited men and women from more than 1,000 weapons manufacturers are showing off their weapons in London's docklands this week. Their displays range from guns that can fire shells more than 30 miles within an accuracy, it is said, of three metres, to small, innocent-looking switches designed to make the life of a fighter easier and safer.


The 46 countries advertising their wares alongside the US giants Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and General Dynamics included Israel, which had a big stand this year.

It advertised an anti-tank weapon described as good for "wall-breaching" but also "highly accurate" and therefore involving "low collateral damage".

Ah yes, the highly accurate weapon of mass destruction.

....but hey, do what you will anyway.
