(The AEGIS Alliance) – Continued bragging that the United States is the ‘global provider of choice’ for arms, Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) Director Lt. Gen. Charles Hooper has issued a statement reporting that the U.S. Sold $42 Billion in Weapons to the Rest of the World in 2017.

That’s an increase in sales of $10 billion when compared to 2016 the previous year. This is according to the U.S. agency that’s in charge of selling  equipment and weapons to other nations. An overwhelming majority of the sales took place in the Middle East, also the Indo-Pacific region saw substantial increases.

The largest amount of sales, around $22 billion, came from the Middle East and Central Asia countries. Almost $8 billion of equipment and weapons went to nations located in the Indo-Pacific region. $7.3 billion went to Europe, another $641.6 million to North and South America, and $248.6 million went to Africa.

Hooper stated the U.S. advantage was not only in the arms themselves, but in the provisions of training and maintenance capabilities for customers, who were labeled as ‘partners.’ He expects the positive sales trend to continue he added.

“This positive sales trend isn’t surprising as the United States is the global provider of choice for Security Cooperation,” DSCA Director Lt. Gen. Charles Hooper said in a statement.

“We deliver not only the most effective defense systems to our partners, but we also ensure a ‘Total Package’ approach that includes the provision of training, maintenance, and sustainment, to support full spectrum capability for our partners,” he stated.

This is likely to be the case, since even though the world is awash in weapons, the regions with the most sales are also areas of particular interest by US foreign policy, and by extension regions full of costly wars, for which U.S. arms producers are all too willing to sell additional equipment.
