The fist-pounding tone of the title reflects the temper of this book. The author sees nothing good in American arms sales, dismissing the foreign policy and industrial base arguments offered by the other side as stupid, hypocritical or venal. This is a shrill work that might have had some value if the author could concede the possibility that those who disagree with him are other than fools or profiteers, or that governments ever make decisions for anything other than corrupt motives.
