Three of China’s biggest state-owned arms companies secretly offered to sell Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi’s army $200 million in weapons to put down the rebellion. The offer, discovered by a Canadian journalist in documents tossed into a Tripoli trash heap, flouted a United Nations embargo on weapons sales to the Qaddafi government — an embargo that China itself had voted for in February.
So where is the outrage over this? Simple… Big business likes doing business with China. It’s good for profits when they can use slave-wage labor and right-wingers are only outraged over what they’re told to be against, so these stories go nowhere.
