Arms sales and the war game

Thank you for the continuing reports on arms sales, especially to the Middle East. It might be nice to play the war game by empowering the United Nations with the ability to tax every arms sale between countries. Money obtained could go to support the UN peacekeeping efforts. Eventually, with a little policing, this could have the result that every country or company selling arms across a national border would have to register the sale with the UN.

Eventually, the weapons business might become less profitable than the butter business. Buryle Payne, Soquel, Calif.
