Arming tyrants

SIR - Why are we still arming tyrants?

Why did we sell weapons to Gadaffi for him to use against his own people?

Why have British-made weapons been used by Saudi Arabia to quell the pro-democracy uprising in Bahrain?

Why did David Cameron have to tour the middle-east last February with a team of arms salesmen?

Why do we spend so much on weapons when millions of children are starving?

Why? Why? Why?
