Opening a retail business in war zone Kosovo is not inadvisable, despite what critics of the plan may say. Eighteen years ago, we opened a retail business in Beirut during an invasion, and that location has been generating profits ever since.

Which of the following is the author of the above argument trying to imply?

A) The proposed retail store can make money despite being in the middle of a war zone.

B) Wars are profitable for retail.

C) Kosovo is not as politically unstable as Beirut.

D) Opponents of a new construction company in Kosovo are probably biased.

E) The proposed company in Kosovo will do better than the construction company in Beirut.

please explain

Between A and B, I choose A.
