Re: "Amnesty criticises Slovak arms exports", By Tom Nicholson, Vol. 8 No. 22, June 10-16, 2002
It is amusing to see that Slovakia exports arms to Libya, Angola and Liberia. Slovakia conducts a lot of business with countries where people have dark skin. Slovakia makes plenty of money from the countries of Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
Yet some Slovaks harbor harsh feelings towards Africans and Arabs. I can imagine the Angolan arms buyers getting mistaken for asylum seekers and getting beat up by skinheads. And perhaps the Libyans would be mistaken for gypsies?
