And of course this does not work, because of plenty resellers between UK/USA 
and "terrorist supporting sountries" and most UK/USA companies have no idea
where their products finally end up... Economical regulations do not work,
if there is a demand (and there is a huge demand). Instead of forcing these 
regulations, western governments should support a liberation/freedom activities
in these countries... (EFF is great in doing this).
