No, and we should NOT sell military weapons to any foreign country. We should also NEVER sell our nuclear weapons to any foreign country either. This would start a global arms race.

No, inflaming Cold War tensions has always done tremendous damage to America at home and abroad. It is imperative that these countries respect and never violate human rights, but after 75 years it's time to figure out a way forward that involves a more peaceful coexistence between capitalism and socialism. Antagonizing these nations is not the way to promote our ideals about human rights.
