The weapons industries manufacture the weapons and countries sell them.

37% of worldwide weapons sales are from America. 20% from Russia. 8.2% from France. Germany 5.5%. China 5.2%. UK 3.3%.

So? It is up to the individual country to ensure weapons are not used in incidents like this. No one is outraged by these Islamic extremists causing mayhem?

Cause and effect. America sold weapons to Saddam Hussein who then used them to kill American troops.

I am personally outraged when civilians and innocents are killed by anyone or any country.

American weapons sold to Saudi are used to kill civilians in Yemen. When that started to happen the UK refused to sell any more weapons to Saudi, but America continues to sell their weapons.

The US ships weapons to a lot of religious extremists who use those weapons to slaughter innocent civilians. A prime example of this are the US weapons sold to Israel that Israel uses to slaughter Palestinians.

If the US didn’t sell those weapons, these horrendous acts would be more difficult to prosecute.

Mali, a former French colony.

Isn't Mali in Africa?

Sounds like Islamic terrorists don't recognize borders well. I'm guessing Nigeria, Sudan, Egypt had some British colonization issues at one time.

The Islamic State already maintains armed groups in seven African countries—Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Tunisia, Mali, Niger, and Nigeria—as well as small sleeper cells in Mauritania, Morocco, and Sudan.

All American troops should leave the UK.

British citizens obviously need the US' protection.

Isn't Mali in Africa?

How would that show it as not having fomerly been a French colony?
