There were concerns that a lack of ‘boots on the ground’ would see sales of arms reaching pre-Iraq levels.
“At the moment the world is fighting two wars,” a spokesman for arms dealers explained. “One against Ebola, and one against ISIS.
“Sadly you can’t bomb the hell out of Ebola, no matter how often we suggest it, so we are relying on a prolonged war against ISIS to help give us world peace and a decent Christmas bonus.
“We understand America doesn’t want to get involved in a gunfight on the frontline, many of the politicians we fund have told us as much.
“Luckily airdropping guns and ammo to the warring parties mean we can not only arm those fighting now, but we ensure some can get into the enemies hands guaranteeing another 12 months of sales, I mean, sad, horrible, expensive war.”
