As more riots break out all over the Middle East where some of the poorest people in the world reside Back and to the Left news asks a very simple question. Where the fuck do they get the money to buy all the guns from?
People who can't afford shoes, education for their own children or running water, seem to find the required cash to buy up a couple of Ak-47s whenever they want. Is there a permanent sale on at the best army surplus store in the world? Or do firearms actually grow on trees out in the desert. There seems to be a higher guns per people ratio in the Middle East then in a Arnold Schwarzenegger film.
We are sure they are packing all this fire power for a reason that isn't just religious (read pointless) retribution. But we are a little confused as to what it is.
Perhaps (and this is just Back and to the Left News thinking aloud) if they didn't get their knickers in a twist over a film but did it over important things. Like corruption in government, getting a better education for their children and oppression. Then maybe people would take more notice of the protests. Instead it seems all you have to do is sneeze during prayer and someone's embassy is getting burnt down.
However there is one man who is always smiling whenever angst against the Americans kicks off. The dude who owns a string of shops throughout the Middle East selling US flags. That guy must be fucking minted.
