Singapore, Malaysia, and the International Arms Industry
Singapore is a modern, ultra-clean city-state, with excellent tourist and shopping facilities. It also has the highest rate per capita of executions in the world, a large, government-regulated commercial sex industry, and is a manufacturer and exporter of weapons that are designed to kill.

It’s Singapore’s role in the international arms industry that is examined here.
