Here is an excellent example of BBC’s slanted converage as it reports on the availability of ammunition in Iraq.
Well, okay. So far so good. From this report most of the new ammunition in Iraq comes from Russia and Eastern European Countries. I’m quite surprised that China isn’t mentioned, but that’s not what they found, apparently.
Now, here’s the graphic they decide to include with this article:
Wow! Americans are such war-mongering bastards. Look at how much death they export! . . .
Wait a minute . . . if you squint and read the small print you’ll realise that this accounts for only 17% of estimated global production. You may also notice that countries such as China, Russia, North Korea, Pakistan and India . . . are nowhere to be found. Are these some of the countries that make up the rest of the global production?
This graphic also provides no context. This is production. How much of US ammunition is used by the US military, law enforcement, average Americans and ally governments?
So incredibly dishonest of the BBC.
