POST SEPT 11 ARMS SALES AND MILITARY AID DEMONSTRATE
DANGEROUS TRENDS

by Rachel Stohl, Senior Analyst, Center for Defense Information

8:00 a.m. January 15, 2003 PDT

Since Sept. 11, the United States has made billions of dollars worth of arms deals to strategic countries, including a $1.2 billion sale of fighter jets and missiles to Oman and nearly $400 million worth of missiles to Egypt. Countries identified as fighting terrorist groups are also set to receive large shipments of military aid, including $92 million in weapons to the Philippines.


F16SINCE THE TERRORISTS ATTACKS of Sept. 11, the United States has employed as many means as possible to fight the war on terror. In one aspect, however, an alarming trend has emerged. The United States is more willing than ever to sell or give away weapons to countries that have pledged assistance in the global war on terror. In the past, the United States has used arms sales to "reward" countries for their loyalty. And, today, if one examines each sale or change in policy individually, there does not appear to be a paradigm shift in U.S. arms export policy. However, when one looks at these transfers together, it becomes clear that the United States has altered its relationships with a significant number of countries, many of which are now receiving military aid that would have been denied before September 11.

The United States has revised the list of countries that are ineligible to receive U.S. weapons. Since Sept. 11, the United States has waived restrictions on arms or military assistance to Armenia, Azerbaijan, India, Pakistan, Tajikistan, and Yugoslavia.

Since Sept. 11, the United States has made billions of dollars worth of arms deals to strategic countries, including a $1.2 billion sale of fighter jets and missiles to Oman and nearly $400 million worth of missiles to Egypt. Countries identified as fighting terrorist groups are also set to receive large shipments of military aid, including $92 million in weapons to the Philippines. Other countries are benefiting from military training relationships. Indonesia, for example, which had been banned from receiving military training, is set to receive training through the new Regional Defense Counter Terrorism Fellowship Program, a new DoD program that is not subject to training limitations contained in the annual Foreign Operations legislation. Human rights and lack of democracy concerns have been given less importance in some cases. Turkey is now set to receive 14 Sea Hawk naval helicopters, even though accusations of gross human rights abuses and tensions with regional rival Greece have delayed other recent helicopter deals.

To avoid being seen as favoring one side over another, some of these recent sales and military aid packages have been given to both sides of a conflict. Both India and Pakistan are set to receive weapons and, in direct response to the lifting of sanctions to Azerbaijan, Armenia was promised $90 million in foreign assistance, $4 million in foreign military financing, and $300,000 for military training.

These sales are just the tip of the iceberg. After the Gulf War, arms exports to the Middle East skyrocketed. The recent display of force with American weaponry could lead to another spike in the near future. Further, while arms agreements are made in the short term, export licenses are good for four years and production can take much longer, and thus actual arms deliveries will continue in the long run.

SANCTIONS LIFTED
AzerbaijanSenator Brownback (R-KS) sponsored an amendment to the FY02 Foreign Operations Appropriations bill that would waive sanctions on Azerbaijan (Section 907 of the Freedom Support Act) in order to support U.S. counter-terrorism efforts.

Status: became law on January 10, 2002 as part of the Foreign Operations Bill
Armenia
Azerbaijan
The United States has lifted arms sales restrictions imposed on Armenia and Azerbaijan in the mid-1990s. Armenia and Azerbaijan were placed on the International Traffic on Arms Regulation (ITAR) list in 1993, prohibiting either country from receiving U.S. military equipment or other military aid. Arms sales to these countries will now be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Status: amendment to ITAR announced on March 29, 2002
India, PakistanPakistan and India had been subject to economic sanctions since May 1998 due to nuclear weapons testing.

Status: President lifted sanctions on September 23, 2001
PakistanSanctions for Pakistan because of the military coup were waived for two years through FY 2003

Status: S.1465, introduced by Senator Brownback (R-KS), waived sanctions on October 27, 2001
Tajikistan, YugoslaviaThe United States has lifted arms sales restrictions imposed on Tajikistan and Yugoslavia (including Serbia and Montenegro) in the mid-1990s. Tajikistan was placed on the International Traffic on Arms Regulation (ITAR) list in 1993, and Yugoslavia was added to the list in 1996, which prohibited either country from receiving U.S. military equipment or other military aid. Arms sales to these countries will now be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Status: amendment to ITAR announced on January 9, 2002


[1] Congress must be notified of any proposed U.S. arms sale, the process after notification depends on the requirements of that type of transfer. “Congress Notified” means that Congress is aware of the sale, it does not mean that the sale has been approved, although in some cases it has been hence it is very difficult to follow up on the status a sale if it is not a Department of Defense contract.
