Buying from NATO? With USD20billion your new country will end up with just 10 MBT, a dozen 155mm SPG, 2 or 3 MLRS and a single Patriot air defense system. So expensive.......

The first job is the military brothers ideological work: fight for freedom, fight for God, The second step:buy some suitable weapons,not Expensive and practicaless

The third step :to actively acquire common interests with local people to build their own local government by our helps, in the form of assistance with local people to develop. Both sides can get more profitness forever

No Hostility to RUssia but must Be careful

It all depends on your relationship with your neighbours. If it is positive or, at least neutral, you can use that money to invest in your fledgling defence industry.

True but tell that to our defense industry with export sales. Training itself is an add on service.

Anyway back on topic....

Yes but when the Senate Foreign affairs committee lines up a deal to ship 400 tons of military hard ware to their buddies in Egypt, Chile Argentina or wherever an Eskimo wants to bolster domestic job growth in the arms industry.


Then your fancy gear will ship, average Joe's pulling down 60K a year working union jobs welding armor plates on Bradley's need work so they can vote.

And this all works best with fancy service plans, upgrade options and now complete with experts you can contract to be paid salary to train your guerrillas ,dictatorial regime or Eskimos how to use it.

You are %100 right and I agree that Ideals and morals should be where our heart is on this but it isn't, it's business, all business. And it sells sells sells.

The lines are all messed up and there is no clear answer on this.

If you are a country in eastern European country, your main worry will about Russia, so if you buy weapons from them and then Russia wants to take over a part of your country I wonder were you would get your spares and ammunition from to fight them.

I would say that training definitely helps in pulling the trigger. In my experience, at least initially, training took over to the point where I was actively fighting the enemy without even a conscience thought because training "took over".

At the end of the day, the "cause" is...survive another day, the "reason" is to protect your buddies, and the "belief" is that if you don't...the enemy will.

I don't think ideology ever even entered my mind...
