Russia sold a record $15.16 billion worth of weaponry in 2012 while expanding its foreign client list, the Federal Military-Technical Cooperation Service (FSMTC) reported on Monday. “The volume of arms exports has reached $15.16 billion, according to preliminary calculations…which means that our plans have been fulfilled by 111.8 percent,” FSMTC chief Alexander Fomin told a government meeting on state defense contracts. http://en.rian.ru/russia/20130121/178925765.html

Like WE give a f- what them do that is SOME of us you know who you are and would you be posting things of which you want no part in I think not or think again. Unless of course this the thinking of ways then what to do would remain the same. Following ones heart will always lead to just exactly the right place and there are not any questions there. Free, happy and kind is a common denominator on the fast track now here. Amen
