Nice graph showing global Arms Sales. Instability has been very, very good for US companies that make things that go BOOM!

Here is one way to quickly meet President Obama's goal to double US exports before his first term is up.

This graph show military arms sales to various countries, primarily in the Middle East..  Notice the surge in 2010 (latest data). Yikes!

This is due to the various dust-ups in the region, lead by the real or perceived threat that is Iran.

You can see, the US is the leader in sales relative to other countries with well developed capabilities to make stuff for war/defense. 

Instability is GOOD for making things that go BOOM!! :)
