"Hey, this amount of hypocrisy is OUR job now!"

Sure, in the 19th and 20th Centuries when the British were not just exporting teen moppets but offending whole nations via petty ignorance you'd expect this sort of thing. But the 21st Century has placed such profitable immoral simplicities on the Americans...so really how dare they!
Britain is planning to increase the sale of arms to Qatar, identifying the rich Gulf state as a “priority market” for its weapons, documents seen by the Guardian show. Last year the Qatari Amiri Guard ordered more than £3m-worth of British-made Heckler and Koch assault rifles, according to a copy of a “purchase order” document obtained by the Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT).
This will do a fine job keeping immigrants in docile indentured status.  

Which is usually America's the fine-honed edge of the profit margin today.
