CR Challenger 21

5. If a rise in the fear of military aggression among nations results in increasing international arms expenditures, then arms production in "watchdog" countries such as the United States will increase, regardless of the level of fear of aggression among the general public.
Which of the following conclusions is best supported by the statement above?
a. The general public in watchdog nations is not allowed timely access to sensitive intelligence information during times of international crisis.
b. Decisions regarding the levels of domestic arms production in watchdog nations are not based on public opinion.
c. International tensions have little effect on arms production levels in watchdog nations, provided those nations have arms stockpiles sufficient for national defense.
d. Watchdog nations in which the general public greatly fears aggression can actually decrease arms production in the face of rising international fears of aggression.
e. When international fear of aggression increases, public opinion in watchdog nations will force government and military officials to react in such a way as to decrease the threat of domestic terrorism.
