I realize that people are going to think that U.S. laws won't apply, but many will: especially those related to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, the Export Administration Regulations, and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. So U.S. citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents beware. You get no free ride on developing stuff that U.S. laws already control for export.
Things are not well in the Peoples Republic of Berkekey?
Doesn't anybody in Washington remember that the U.S. State Department licenses the export of all military firearms and ammunition. and ATF their importation? The system for controlling exports of munitions goes back to the Neutrality Act of 1936, with some relevant law going further back to the Trading With the Enemy Act of 1917. The U.S.' systems for control of international arms trading have been in place for decades. We need a treaty like we need a(nother) hole in our heads. BTW, the EU nations treat arms export as national concerns under the Rome Treaty and most do take this matter seriously.
Why does anybody report what this guy says?
Didn't LBJ declare war on poverty?
Quartemaster General Mears made Arlington Hall unsuitable to live in forever more by burying Union dead right up against the house. His son was killed not far from there and this was his revenge against Lee for Lee's treason...but it had been his wife's property before they married, so I guess the point misfired.
This point is well taken, Lincoln said: "Let 'em down easy" on that subject. Had Lincoln lived, Reconstruction would never have been so negative. He kept the Radicals (Northern extremists) under control. That slipped under his successor. Look at the instructions he gave to Grant and Sherman at City Point, VA before the end of the seige of Petersburg in '65 to see what I mean (Shelby Foote's "The Civil War, A Narrative," vol. 3. Look also at the terms given to Southern army commanders such as Lee, Johnston, et al.
Wannabe elite talking to other wannabes. Ho hum.
Powell's comment was made in response to, and in the presence of, the "Red" Archbishop of Canterbury who accused the U.S. of territorial ambitions and imperialism in the Middle East and South Asia.
