If you got some time to spare before you go out and get thrased tonight, I suggest you watch this insanely interesting documentary called Bulletproof Salesman(which I so generously posted below). It’s about this dude who goes into war zones and sells armored vehicles to whomever might be in need of a automobile that is resistant to heavy artillery, IED’s, bombs, grenades, rocket launchers and all that other good stuff war is good at bringing about. If you want to get into the ethics of the movie, a reviewer on IMDB is more adept at providing that piece of insight:

It is a troubling film about a man who makes it his business to make money as a war profiteer and is proud of it. German war profiteer Fidelis Cloer clearly enjoys his work selling armored cars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is a microcosm of the capitalist system. He exists to make money and war is simply an extension of business to him. He wants to make the best product and sell it and thus protect his clients. He doesn’t seem to care that his products are used as part of a war machine. He seems to have no political conscience or concern. He went to Iraq at the beginning of the war in 2003, because he believed things would get worse and there would be an opportunity to profit.
