Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I didn't say that selling drugs was akin to selling weapons. Nor are the complaints mostly due to the fact that France is selling weapons.

I just used an example to refute the "just shut up and mind your own business because the people in the factories will be getting some work" argument.

That Lybia may be bringing money to France is not an argument to decide whether or not Gadhafi's presence is acceptable on Human Rights grounds. That was my point.

As for your arguments, 2 to 4 are fully valid. 1 is not. Similarly, if I don't sell drugs, someone will. But I don't, even though someone will.

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed. Gandhi
