The Business of War: SOFEX

35013 ratings | 3548349 views
SOFEX is where the world's leading generals come to buy everything from handguns to laser-guided missile systems. It stands for "Special Operations Forces Exhibition Conference" and it's essentially a trade-show where just about anyone with enough money can buy the most powerful weapons in the world.

how to make profits 1.Instigate fights between nations then sell them basic weapons and ordnance 2.approach countries that lost battles or wars and recommend Pure P2W OP items. (profits) 3.watch them fight again. 4.Approach countries that got beat up by P2W weapons then Recommend speeding up the Training, reducing time Building weapons or Skill boosters for their soldiers 5.Watch them Fight again and again. 6. approach all countries and Showed them the Ultimate Check-Mate. 7.which is Chests, Loot boxes, care packages or whatever you want to call it, and tell those generals that Loot boxes have Small chances to Obtain the "Ultimate P2W SUPAH I KILL YOU ALL" weapons that CAN ONLY BE OBTAINABLE THRU LOOT BOXES and that Lucky man can be "YOU" 8. emphasize the "LIMITED TIME ONLY" 9. PROFITS and LOTS OF PROFITS. 10. Watch them Fight again. Rinse and Repeat. 11. No refund. PLOT TWIST DLC -Secretly rise your own Private military with all those profits -Lobby governments and politicians around the world. -plans to take over the world -Tell Those Generals "AND FOR LIMITED TIME ONLY, THIS DLC WILL GIVE YOU WHOLE NEW WEAPONS, ARMS, BOOSTERS, PERKS WHICH WILL BE UNLOCKED IF YOU BEAT THE SECRET PLOT DLC! ACT NOW" -Go back to Step 1 but with new War, New Nations, New Story to tell from from the previous war to instigate whole new Story(war)

20% of all this shit might be used to kill or opress citizens or whatever remaining 80% is muscle flexing and tools for cock fights between nations that think progress comes from brawn alone.

War is a big business. Home invasions are real, & it's happening everywhere, you could be the next. Own a firearm for home defense. Don't let yourself be controlled & be victimized by armed intruders.

azraelbatosi (10 days ago)
I really wish more media would have the balls VICE has to report on all the weird, crazy things that happen on earth...but so many of the VICE reporters ruin how awesome VICE’s ideas are by essentially being horribly biased and/or terrible reporters...so...I’m torn, though, those two failings are endemic to modern media in general. This video, though, really awesome

These convention should be illegal as F. This is where inspiration is gathered and hands are shook over multi-billion dollar and hundreds of thousands of casualties-deals. Disgusting!

I don't see the problem really. Selling weapons to warriors makes sense.

EvenStar LoveAnanda (11 days ago)
It's like little babies playing with little solders and guns. But these morons are very dangerous. The whole thing is hoax guys. They create the enemies who they are going to fight. So they can keep selling weapons and make a shitload of money, while people get blown up. So this shit will never end...................... Until we lock up all these violent idiots in the loony bin.
LC 716 (12 days ago)
You can buy it just like you’d buy a chocolate bar? Really, this is why I hate Vice news. They’re twisting the narrative to fit their story. That’s not how any of that works. I will bet every penny I own that nobody on your staff, with all the money in the world, could just buy any of that stuff without proper credentials. I’m not saying it doesn’t happen sometimes, but it’s not how you’re insinuating
LC 716 (12 days ago)
It’s strange to see how they desensitize people to killing.

Special Operations are the same as terrorists, except they have money. Wealthy terrorist = special ops.

You know what is absurd? The notion that the u.s. has been under any threat from anyone but it's fascist government.

0bserver1 (25 days ago)
Wow! Much 2-3 times more on domestic security spending than on defense export products. Why the fuck the governments don't spend all these money on education and healthcare but just on defending their own system from angry poor people? I'm not a liberal either, but the marine got it right.

The Marine described it precisely.
