A knives seller is not the culprit of murdering using their knives.

By the other side, if a country has better weapons, they can win a war more fastly and with a less civilian/collateral damage.

Other countries like USA instead stop selling weapons to Saudi Arabia, they could use a % of profits giving food and humanitarian asistence to Yemeni civilian people.

Wonder when arms dealers and weapons manufacturers will start getting sued by the victims of conflicts.

If they stop selling it will only make your Chinese masters richer and the Saudis would still have bombs to drop on Yemeni weddings. The only loosers would be the honest British worker and the economy. Sales must go on.

A competition between knife sellers doesn't make for a moral argument...

That doesn't defeat my point, stopping sales to Saudi Arabia won't stop the war in Yemen, it would just cause suffering to British industry and it would be, in the end, a pointless gesture.

Exactly it has already had good effect Saudis setup large local industries to counter for half of the military budget. As for sales will go on with many options open it is better to benefit from it rather then someone else

Time over time the UK has proven to be a reliable ally unlike sleepy Joe’s America. The whole world is an open market for us.

A drug dealer selling drugs to an addict is also a criminal. Doesn't justify the crime.

Same as a arms dealer selling arms to a murdering nation.
