At Boeing’s world headquarters in Chicago, 11 people were arrested for protesting Boeing’s role in the possible war in Iraq. Boeing is the nation’s second largest defense contractor after Lockheed-Martin. Last year the government paid Boeing $25 billion in contracts. Boeing makes many key weapons that may be used in Iraq including Apache combat helicopters, guidance systems for the Tomahawk Cruise missile and integrated systems for laser-guided "smart bombs" as well as nuclear weapons.
