Bofors Industries new artillery grenade Excalibur is being used in Afghanistan and Iraq by American forces. The grenade is a new generation weapons platform that allows you to shoot and hit with extreme precision over distances up to 60 km. Here are some information!
That's great! Not only can we Swedes sell artillery ammunition with a cost of 1000 000 kr a piece ($ 166 000)! But they will also actually save lifes, because of the extremly high presicion. So far so good.
(Yeah- We Swedes can make weapons of the highest standards; we just don't use them!)
A majority shareholder of Bofors... Is the Swedish state! Allso the buissness itself brings in a lot of tax money. A part of that money is then being used to finance the terrorists! They are calling it "aid", but there is a cleare correlation by the amount of "aid" a certain country gets and the terrorist activities there. There are also clear correlation between the amount of aid money being given and the amount of corruption there are in the country! AND prolonged aid produces poverty (can you sell beef when an other country is handing it out for free?)...
Well, atleast we don't sell Excaliburs to them...
