Students First sweeps AMS elections
by Rick Hiebert
The Students First group of UBC student politics veterans has been swept into
office, winning four of the five executive
positions in last week's Alma Mater Society
elections.
From the slate, Bill Dobie, AMS director of finance, was handily elected AMS
president. Carole Forsythe, AMS vice-
president won a term as co-ordinator of
external affairs. Roger Watts squeaked out
a narrow 50-vote win for the director of
administration post while Dean Leung won
by a comfortable 400 vote margin in the
director of finance contest.
Independent candidate Janice Boyle
bucked the trend, winning the vice-president position by 270 votes.
The winners, including the independent Boyle, will spend the next two weeks
learning to work together and discussing
priorities for the coming year.
Dobie and Forsythe said they are confident that the new executive will be an
effective team.
"The five people who all won for the
executive are all committed to making the
AMS more accessible to students, which is
very important to me personally," presidentelect Dobie said.
"We have made it difficult for people to
get involved in the AMS. In the past, people
have thought that you tended to need some
sort of status or position to be effective in
the AMS. Thafs the wrong attitude and
something we want to change," Dobie said.
Boyle, for her part, was suprisedbyher
win. Her first priority will be to improve
student imput into the AMS by developing
the strengths ofthe constituencies.
She hopes to get the word out about the
AMS through aggressive advertising,
postering and forming a group of AMS volunteers to tell classes about student activities.
"We have to make AMS activities more
fun, more like a social event," Boyle said.
"We also need to give council a chance
to get more involved in giving advice and
direction to AMS executives," she said. "We
need their support and their help."
Forsythe, Co-ordinator of External Affairs-elect, plans to jump right into the
problems that many students have with the
BC student loan system, given that if any
change is to happen for next fall, lobbying
has to begin now.
"We need to find out why the provincial
government is dragging its feet on the reforms suggested by the Oram Commission
on student assisatnce in BC," she said. "We
need to find out how best to apply our
influence and get support for student interests in the outside community."
These are unofficial results. The re-
suits only become official after being ap
proved by the AMS student council, but
bairring the unforeseen it is a foregone conclusion the above winners will be taking
office as the new student council executive
at the AMS general meeting February 17.
(UBC students also voted for candidates for the Board of Governors and Senate
in the elections, but those results are counted
by the UBC Registrars Office. Results will
be available later this week.)

Offensive abyss swallows T-Birds
by Steve Chow
UBC's varsity hockey team added to the
loss column last weekend as the University
of Calgary Dinosaurs, now 14-6-2, used the
Thunderbirds' seventh place 4-16-2 record
to seize a second place tie with Saskatchewan in Canada West play.
Friday, Jan.28
UBC 2 Calgary S
Centre Jeff Watchorn's much-heralded
return to the T-Bird line-up was good for an
assist on Dean Richards' opening goal, a rare
UBC power-play marker at 7:07 ofthe first
period.
The T-Birds tried to contain Calgary's
much-feared transition game with punishing
hits of the Scott Frizzell, Darren
Kwiatkowsky and Derek Lampshire varieties, but Dino left-winger/captain Kevin Heise
still flaunted one goal and three assists.
The Dinosaurs started the bleeding at
1:57 of period two on a power-play goal from
leading scorer Greg Suchan. With UBC unable to clear their own zone at 15:43, left-
winger Jim Wheatcroft put one over a horizontal UBC goalie Mark Thom as a swarm of
devil-red uniforms descended on the T-Bird
goal crease.
Heise's power-play goal at 7:33 of the
third opened the wound to 3-1.
Watchorn squeezed out a power-play
goal for UBC mid-way in the third, but
Calgary countered 23 seconds later on
Suchan's second of the game. Bruce
Bianchini's empty-net goal at 19:19rangthe
death knell for the Birds.
Thom, stopping 21 of 25 shots and selected as UBC's best player, said, "We pretty
well handed it to them. We could have easily
won that game 2-0. But our mistakes really
cost us.. .. Special teams pretty well won
that game for them."
With Jane's Addiction's "Been Caught
Stealing" blasting in the Dinosaur dressing
room, captain Heise said, They'll come back.
WeVe got to have more beer than juice tonight and be prepared tomorrow."
Saturday, Jan.29
UBC 2 Calgary 3
Calgary winger Todd Sceviour opened
the scoring at 8:37 of the first period, followed by a short-handed marker at 6:58 of
the second from Dino forward Kevin Shmaltz
on a perfectly executed 2-on-l with Todd
Ashton.
UBC was silent until 11:51 of period
three, when Port Alberni's favourite son,
Bill Parkinson, scored short-handed, tip-

ping in defenceman Scott Frizzell's superb
Gretzky-esque centering pass from the right
wing boards deep in the Calgary zone.
End-to-end intensity suddenly came into
vogue after two and a half chippy periods,
unleashing the Dinosaur's deadly transition game and defenceman Ross
Rayment's blitzkrieg wrap-a-round at 14:08
ofthe third.
With UBC on a two-man advantage,
Frizzell's in-your-face rocket from the point
brought UBC to within one goal at 17:27, but
with goaltender Paul Hurl pulled at 19:15,
six T-Bird attackers could not beat Calgary
goalie Jaret Burgoyne.
After the game, Frizzell reviewed a loss
that could have been prevented if the power-
play was respectable: "When we do get a
chance, sometimes we bury it, sometimes
we don't... We aren't at a constant intensity
level."
UBC's lethargic power-play was slapped
silly all weekend, operating at 14.3 percent—
a woeful 3 goals for 21 attempts in two
games.
Calgary head coach Wilbrod Desjardins
doesn't understand why the T-Bird offense
is so offensive.
"I don't know what's happened for sure
but I know that they're a lot better team
than their record . .. They've got too much
offence not to be scoring."
Tell that to UBC coach Mike Coflin, who
admitted that poor execution on the
powerplay is killing their game.
"Under pressure, we continue to really
lose our focus... It probably shows up on the
powerplay more than anything. It's a
struggle to keep up their confidence. It's
one thing to stroke people to be positive, but
they've got to get rewarded to really feel
confident, to believe."
In the last six gamcss, the Thunderbirds
have been carpet-boml>ed 30-14 and with
the power-play in purgatory, blow-outs
threaten the team as UBC hits the road
to take on the Saskatchewan Huskies—
Canada West's most potent offense. Classifieds 822-3977

This little piggy went to market
by Frances Foran
Call it creative accounting or
call it sanctioned tax evasion. It
amounts to the same thing—approximately $27 billion in untaxed
corporate profits.
According to BC Federation of
Labour president Ken Georgetti,
Revenue Canada declares amnesty
for corporations after 7.5 per cent
ofthe year (28 days) has passed, as
their taxes account for 7.5 per cent
of total taxrevenue.The Federation
marked the day corporations stop
paying taxes (Jan 28) as Corporate
Tax Freedom Day.
In 1987 there were over 93,000
corporations not paying taxes,
with combined profits of $27 billion.
"The Conservati veshave given
a new meaning to the term, 'corporate welfare bum,"' Georgetti
said.
The tax burden has dramatically shifted in the last 30 years
from corporations to individuals,
leaving Canada with one of the
lowest corporate tax rates in the
world. While corporate taxes have
been slashed back since the 60s,
half the federal tax burden now
rests with individuals.
Revenue Canada shows that
between 1984 and 1990, personal
taxes increased 77 per cent and
sales taxes increased 106 per cent.
Corporate taxes in Canada increased by only half as much in the
same period.
If corporate taxes increased at
the same rate as personal taxes
there would be $4.4 billion in the
federal coffers, Georgetti said. "That
money could easily have established
a national childcare program that
would have given working families
access to decent affordable daycare."
Tax relief and loopholes for
corporations aren't necessary for a
healthy economy, Federation director Bill Tieleman said.
"Look at West Germany and
Japan, both with higher corporate
taxes than ours, and theirs are two
of the strongest economies in the
world," he said. "We're just saying
The Times are back in the SUB
Student council fashion file, January 27
by Frances Foran
The ban prohibiting The
Campus Times from distributing
in the Student Trnion building
has been lifted.
Council accepted the recommendation from the student
administrative committee to let
the paper distribute freely on
campus since the paper's editorial board has turned over and
most of its new editors are students. The Times was initiated
and run chiefly by alumni until
recently.
Only threecouncilors voiced
reservations about lifting the
ban, citing the paper's questionable genesis during last's
years CUPE strike.
Grad students' rep Michael
Hughes said, "I didn'tappreciate
the way The Campus Times opportunistically took advantage
of The Ubyssey," which ceased
publication for most the strike's
duration.
Times staff declared thatthe
need to print news for the uni
versity community overrode
honoring the strike, despite the
fact that more students signed a
petition in support ofthe CUPE
workers than elected last year's
student government.
Councilors appeared tense
and drained during the election
weekmeeting. Janice Boyle was
attired entirely en noir, unusual for her, but chic. Confidence redeems any outfit, anyway, dear.
Council also elected the executive ofthe AMS Foundation,
the tax deductible charitible appendage ofthe Alma Mater Society. New president is Arts rep
Tanya Paz; Janice Boyle is vice-
president; Jeff West is secretary; Krista Greentree, treasurer.
Liz Van Assem had funny
silvertiesin her braids—smartly
highlighting the silver hearts
on her combat hoots. Her full
indigo pants were of a natural
fibre, possibly hemp. Daring, yet
eco-right.

corporations should pay their fair
share and live up to the rules that
exist."
Corporations get away with
not paying their fair share because
they can, Tieleman said. A 1984
audit of Revenue Canada discovered that for every dollar spent
auditing multinational corpora
tions, $17 in missed revenue was
recovered.
But audits of corporations
have been decreasing steadily.
Less that two per cent of corporate
tax returns are audited as of
1990, down from seven per cent in
1974.
The Federation called atten
tion to the need for tax reform by
holding a 'piggy' race in which ten
battery operated toy pigs representing major non-taxpaying corporations raced to a trough filled
with money.
The winner was Hollinger Incorporated, newspaper magnate
Conrad Black's company.
Joblink to operate year round
by Lucho van Isschot
Have you started your summer job search yet?

program want to help.
The AMS-run Joblink program hopes to offer its job place-

ment services year-round, starting at the end of this semester.
In the wake of record-high
student unemployment last
summer, more and more students need to work part time
during the school year, interim
Joblink coordinator James
Pflanz said.
During the summer of 1992,
less than 20 per cent ofthe students who used the Joblink services in the SUB were actually
placed in jobs. And most of the
small number of students lucky
enough to find work through
Joblink were placed in temporary
or part time posts.
"It was a fairly typical situation last year," Pflanz said.
If the plan to turn Joblink
into a year-round program is put
into effect, its coordinators will
work closely with UBC Placement Services, the University's
own student job placement service.
"We will work closely with
their operation so we don't
overlap one another," Pflanz
said. "Well pool our resources as
well."
UBC Placement Services
doesn't really service the needs
of students who need part-time
jobs just to pay their bills, Pflanz
said.
"Most of [Placement Services] time is taken up by big
corporations comingin to recruit
students," he said.
He also hopes to run, "educational programs in the employment area—such as how to
structure a summer job search,"
during the school year.
This upcoming summer job
prospects aren't very encouraging Pflanz said.
"For students who want
work and money for September,
look now. The sooner you look,
the more likely youTi get work."

Brave New (NUDE?) Playwrites
Dorothy Somerset Theatre
January 28
Zsuzsi Gartner's The Dean of Cowboy Critics, BARING the myths of cowboys and of ineffectual academics,
stood out with its comic momentum and FLASHES of rhetorical brilliance.
Catherine Williams was great in Lisa Mesbur's one-woman play, Fugitive, as a character STRIPPED of her role.
There were a lot of monologues, and a lot of comedies in this BODY of RAW talent.
Anything with more than a couple of actors, like the final show Immodest Acts, or EXPOSING serious drama,
like Passing, by Anne Fleming, stuck out like a sore, um, THUMB.
The latter was a truly moving drama about a young offender and her case worker SHEDDING their
INHIBITIONS and opening their eyes to each other's SEXUALITY AND WELTUMSCHAU.
Immodest Acts was tougher to swallow than anything else on the programme. A sort of 14th century costume
drama, this well-acted and directs) tale of nuns and church politics was simply too long and ponderous to sustain
the audience's attention after an already lengthy evening.
If you missed Brave New Play Rites in its first run this year, you should check it out at the "Best of" rerun in
a couple of weeks. Most of it is really good, you'll be supporting the university's up-and-coming success stories,
and, hey, how can you say no to eight dlf-ferent plays for four bucks?

TWO SIDES TO THE SERVIETTE

JAN FORCIER PHOTO
Nby Morgan Maenling
amed by Step Magazine
as one of the 100 most
interesting people in Vancouver,
Nardwuar The Human Serviette has
risen to fame and notoriety from
humble beginnings.
Nardwuar spontaneously occurred beneath a giant Amanita
mushroom in a southern Siberian
rain-forest.
He was discovered by eastern
glade elves and taken to the fern-
forest, where he was raised and
educated in the trade of elven folk
dancing.
In late puberty, Nardwuar ventured to the coastal regions where
he grew a field of corn, dried thousands of corn husks and lashed
them together with strands of
hemp braided with chest hair. The
raft "Achilles Heel* was launched
with himself aboard and his beloved
mountain rat, Rabid.
Months later, Nardwuar was
washed onto a North Vancouver
shore in a senseless condition and
tragically, Rabid's body was never
recovered.
Initially, The Human Serviette
attempted to earn his living by promoting frond festivals.
He is now an inhabitant of CiTR
radio. You can catch his abrasively
charming patter on Fridays at 3:30
to 5pm on 101.9 FM.
Nardwuar Records, his own
label, has recently released such
potential hits as Welcome to my
Castle, by Nardwuar and the Evaporators, and Louis Rial, by The
Headcoats.
The Serviette currently resides
with his live-in cat, Cleo. Although
she was unavailable for comment
pertaining to rumors of her longtime companion suggestively massaging hertoes, Mr. Serviette insists
their relationship is platonic and he
has no untoward intentions.
•So, Mr. Serviette, tell meall about
Cleopatra von Flufflesteln, your
cat.
Cleopatra von Flufflestein is my
favorite cat, actually my only cat and
she likes earwax. I love Cleo, she's
so furry and I just love her. She
jumped on my bed the other morning, shecame by herself, on her own
will. On her own will just to wake me
up...l love Cleo...my cat.
•Have you ever had sex on acid
with a vacuum cleaner?
Let's     just     say,      I've
experimented...here and there...
•What's your favorite colour?
Blue. Because blue is the colour of the ocean. And in the ocean
there are fish. And fish eat oysters
and clams, and I love clam chowder,
•Do you take drugs?
I've experimented with some
drugs. But not all of them.
•Do you plan to experiment with
all of them?
Probably on the day I die, I'll
experiment with ali of them.
•How did you get your name, Mr.
Nardwuar?
I was walking down 24th street
in West Vancouver, grovelling to
myself and NARDWUAR! came
out. I was thinking of The Human
Fly by The Cramps, so I thought
of the human serviette. Why did I
think of the human serviette?
WHY SERVIETTE? Because in the
United States of America I asked
for a serviette and they didn't
know what I was talking about. I
was trying to wipe   some   clam
chowder off my chin and they
said, "We only have napkins here."
Then I got a radio show here at
CiTR so I called myself
NARDWUAR THE HUMAN
SERVIETTE. It's a dumb, stupid
name. Just like Sting.
•Who was your favorite Interview
subject?
Favorite interview I ever did,
possibly, was with (television evangelist and faith healer] Ernest
Angely. He said "God's liable to
strike you down, dead, child." That
was my favorite moment. That sort
of typified the Nardwuar experience. I captured it on video as
well, so that was doubly satisfying. Maybe Sonic Youth as well,
that was very enjoyable and Pierre
Berton, an ex-Ubyssey-er. He
loves supporting the old Alma Mater. Actually anybody that will
speak and not yell and scream at
me and will tell interesting stories, I
Jove.
•Have you been interviewed before?
A few times, yeah. I've been
interviewed by the Sh eep Are Mammals Too Association. SHAMTAand
the North Shore News.
•When you were interviewing
Jello Biafra, why did he write all
over your face?
He said "NARDWUAR!, YOU
HAVE TO GO TO WORK
TOMMORROW.
AAAAAAHHHHHHHH!" and drew
al) that pen all over me, just because he's a SHIT disturber. Just
out of the blue, he went
"NARDWUAR!" and drew all that
felt marker all over me. It took about
30 or 40 minutes to get all the ink
off with UBC soap. My face was
completely chapped...
•Have you sold out to the corporate elite?
NO! I have not sold out to the
corporate elite! Where did you
hear this? On the radio? NOI...I
DID NOT SELL OUT TO THE
CORPORATE ELITE!...WHAT
HAVE I DONE?...l WOULD DIEI...I
WOULD KILL TO SELL OUT TO
THE CORPORATE
ELITE!...Nobody's offered me
ANYTHING....Am I planning
to?...NO!...l mean I wish I...I mean
if I had, I would have got
something but...NO I HAVEN'T!...

Break the law!
A law went Into effect yesterday which wfll deny
baste rights to people who seek to Immigrate to Canada,
and will entrench racist assumptions into Canadian law.
Law C-86, as it is called, gives arbitrary powers
to immigration and alrllneofflctals. A potential Immigrant
can be turned away at the border H any such official
deems them to be "unfit" to enter the country.
Any person suspected of being a "criminal"
may be fingerprinted sent back to their country of origin.
C-86 eliminates a provision In the old
immigration Act which guaranteed any refugee claimant
a hearing on their case. Moreover, C-86 will allow
Immigration officials to deport refugee claimants if they
(a) are transiting through another Canada en route to
Canada (b) have applied to another country for refugee
status (c) have been refused refugee status in another
country (d) have a criminal record (which is Inevitable In
the case of political dissidents who are fleeing repressive
governments).
The new law also defines "family" in narrow,
ethnocentric terms as being comprised solely of a
mother, father and children. This definition ignores the
fact that in many cultures extended families (which may
Include grandparents, aunts and uncles, and cousins)
are the norm.
The law appears to be the Tories* response to
rising xenophobia in Canada. Bernard Valcourt, the
minister responsible for employment and immigration,
has argued In favour of C-86 based on the spurious
assumption that new Immigrants are a burden on the
ailing Canadian economy.
A number of studies, including one by the right-
wing lobby Fraser Institute, attempt to demonstrate that
new immigrants, especially those from so-called "Third
World" countries, are more likely to receive social
assistance than are Canadian-born persons. The great
irony Is that the same people who would argue in favour
of C-86 can't decide whether 1mm (grants are a burden on
the economy, or whether they are taking It over.
Truth be told, the Canadian economy depends
on the labour of new immigrants, and on the Income
generated by immigrant-owned businesses.
The Fraser Institute's study doesn't point out,
as other studies do, that new Imm igrants pay significantly
higher taxes than Canadian-born citizens and that most
small businesses, which are the cornerstone of economic
growth In urban centres, are owned by new immigrants.
More im portant, however, Is the issue of racism.
C-86 Institutionalizes and enshrines the values thatthe
government should be combatting.
Each of Canada's federal political parties has to
be held accountable for the effects ofthe new Immigration
Act. Neither the Liberals nor the NDP effectively
challenged its implementation, h was passed quietly:
without public debate, without fuss.

It was a Monday like any other Monday—the sky was grey the grass was, was, well a little green and Doug Fen-is
was pleased. Stan Paul has a job HURRAH!!!!!!! Liz Van Assem was here and was going to write this but then she
just disappeared. Omar Kassis was worried, he had been up all night after having a bad nightmare. It went
something like this— A huge pizza, looking unmistakenly like Lucho van Isschot was jogging down Broadway
following closely behind by Steve Chow or was it a plate of poutine. Anyway, Omar was having trouble sleeping
so he called Rick Hiebert to calm him do wa Unfortunately, Rick's line was busy because he was talking to Morgan
Maenling about life. Omar then phoned Frances Foran, he was desperate, ana Frances, the queen of hemp, sorry,
helped and put Omar at ease and he finally fell asleep. Meanwhile back at the ranch, lan Lloyd and Jan Forcier
were looking for another pair to play bridge with, ana low and behold Lisa Kwan and Bonnie-Lynn Holter were
ready and willing to play and even brought their own deck of cards along. Now Marc P. was hard at work, actually
he is always hard at work. David Chivo was happy or at least he seemed to be and Sam, well Sam Green was
getting excited and so was Siobhan Roantree. They were looking forward to wonderful and prosperous lives.
They both knew the future held tons o' pictures and that was good. And it was February, Denise Woodley and
Paula Wellings were just plain mischievous.

Early bird gets
the vote?
Canadians must wait
until Prime Minister
Mulroney and the Conservatives "get in" again before
a federal election call.
Meanwhile, British
Columbia's voter's need to
familiarize themselves with
potential elections issues, to
protect against being swayed
by appeals to ideology or to
vague motions such as the
public good. Last October
voters in Western Canada
rejected the Charlottetown
accord. They rejected the
"short end" ofthe constitutional stick offered by the
Tories.
An election issue of
concern is further attempts
by the federal government
to achieve greater political
integration: a more powerful central government: a
unitary state that derogates
from provincial governments' powers over the
economy.
The Canadian economy
and its industrial structure
are changing. Western
provinces nolonger sell their
own natural resources into
finished goods. Exporting
products with a high labour
"value added" provides
greater returns and more
stability to the provincial
domestic economy and
larger income tax revenues.
Transfer payments
from Ottawa to the provinces are severely constrained because of interest
payments on the huge federal debt.
Now provincial governments must make it on their
own, to meet their constitutional obligations.
Citizens of British Columbia should logically
analyze any issue put forward by political parties in
the campaign leading to the
federal election, particularly
policies dealing with political and economic integra
tion, to assess whose interests are really being promoted.

I am writing to express
my disappointment with The
Ubyssey's recent elections
coverage. As a candidate for
the Board of Governors, I took
the time to appear at The
Ubyssey's offices for an interview. Needless to say, I
was not happy to see that
although the interviews
given by theother candidates
were printed in your paper,
mine was not.
I can only speculate that
the recording of my interview
might have been lost or misplaced. What I cannot understand, or forgive, is the
fact that no effort was made
to rectify the situation. I
would have been more than
willing to come in for another
interview, had I been asked.
Instead, by ignoring the
situation, The Ubyssey did a
disservice not only to myself,
but to all the students who
might have been interested
in hearing what I had to say.
If an organization such
as yours undertakes to
cover a democratic election,
it should ensure that this
coverage is equal, fair, and
complete. Your coverage of
the AMS elections this year
has, in my view, been none
of these. If the staff of The
Ubyssey wishes to be taken
seriously, it must show that
it is deserving ofthe students'
attention and respect. So far,
I have seen little evidence
that this is the case.
I would appreciate a reply.

February 2,1993 OPINION
The Middle East time bomb
by David Chivo
While the international community grapples with the conflicts
in the former Yugoslavia, Somalia, as well as in the embattled
republics of the former Soviet
Union, Middle Eastern countries
are busy shopping. Their wish list
contains everything from tanks
and missiles to nuclear weapons
coupled with sophisticated delivery systems. In response, the
United States is screaming foul
play, but it also remains the area's
largest supplier.
Following the US-led victory
over Iraq in the Gulf War, a triumphant George Bush outlined
his vision of a new world order, in
which the Middle Eastern countries would cease their massive
arms build-up and work towards
establishing peace in the area.
"It would be tragic if the nations of the Middle East and the
Persian Gulf were now, in the
wake ofthe war [over Kuwait], to
embark on a new arms race," said
the President.
Almost two years later however, Middle East weapons purchasing is at an all time high with
the US leading the way towards
arming the area to its teeth.
The Washington-based Arms
Control Association says that the
United States has sold more than
$21 billion worth of arms to Mid-
East countries, $14 billion of which
was headed toward Saudi Arabia.
The problem is that following
the end ofthe cold war, struggling
American arms manufacturers
have been pressuring Congress and
the government to save jobs by
selling arms, at the cost of strategic prudence.
"Preserving jobs at home and
the United States' role as Saudi
Arabia's chief supplier," says
Middle East Magazine, "seems to
have won the day over restraint."
Perspective
Not that prominent US analysts have failed to take notice.
CIA director Robert Gates saidlast
June thatthe Middle Eastremains
"dangerously unstable." He also
warned that the growing ballistic
missile threat may extend beyond
Europe and Asia.
Others warn that the stockpiling of weapons in Saudi Arabia
and Kuwait does not enhance the
defence capabilities, but instead,
make these countries more lucrative to potential invaders. And
this fear is not unfounded; during
the GulfWar for example, the Iraqis used American surface-to-air
missiles that they had captured
during their invasion of Kuwait
against allied aircraft.
While the US is the largest
player in the Middle East arms
build-up, it is hardly alone in this
endeavour. The bitter paradox is
that the five permanent members
of the  UN  Security Council,
Need a Vocation?

charged with maintaining world
peace, are also the five largest exporters of weapons to the Mid-East.
'The role of Russia is particularly precarious. Strapped for cash,
Moscow is liquidating equipment
for entire armies at fire sale-sale
prices.
Russian president Boris
Yeltsi n tol d the newspaper Izvestda
that,, "today, trading in arms is a
necessity for us. Soviet weapons
are highly popular and easily find
buyers."
The more ominous threat is
that of nuclear technology transfer
from former Soviet republics, let
alone the sale of actual weapons.
"The US fears bands of Dr.
Strangeloves operating out of
Tehran, Tripoli, Baghdad, or
Damascus," reports Middle East
Magazine. As a result, Washington
has devised schemes to keep
nuclear scientists employed to stop
them from working for Middle
Eastern states.
Other players competing in the
$60 billion Mid-East arms sales
pot includes North Korea, Turkey,
Argentina, Brazil, as well as former
satellite countries in East Europe.
The end result is fast money
for major arms exporters around
the world. What remains uncertain however, are the results
should this awesome array of
firepower ever be used and the
global implications of a Mid-East
war. One can only guess at the
consequences.
