From the sources I've seen, it's either the Russian Fed or the USA.

officially, i bet it's the USA.

unofficially, i'd put my money on all those kalashnikovs that seem to find themselves in the hands of militias throughout the 3rd world.

Officially it used to be the USA, now it's Russia...and yes, Africa is the primary importer of Russian arms.

Interestingly, the largest percentage of USA exports goes to North Africa and the Middle East.

I remember this from the Slane DVD too. Bullet live

Anyway, maybe arms aren't so bad. The world is overpopulated maybe they'll help with that problem.......
