    Making these new weapons available worldwide makes no sense to me. With that, we lose our military advantage. Anything can be bought and sold but I personally think these weapons should be restricted from export, period. There is plenty of market, just in our military, to sufficiently compensate the manufacture. Why give any other country the edge in military weapons systems, especially now that the present administration is dangerously drawing down our military defense capability?
