The proliferation of convential arms is a theme that these wishy-washy leftwing “intelligentsia” have usurped since 1968 to develop a disingenuous “anti-imperialist” World Solidarity Doctrine with, with the aim to justify Soviet arms proliferation and consequently condemn the Western arms industry.
