Though unknown to many americans , Viktor Bout was one of America and the world’s most dangerous criminals. He was an international arms dealer who was finally brought to justice by the efforts of the the DEA and federal authorities. On April 5,2012 he was sentenced to 25 years in prison for his crimes. Bout has provided arms to drug lords and other terrorists around the world mostly used against U.S. interests and threatening the lives of thousands.
It should be one of the greatest law enforcement tasks to bring to justice ppthese horrible peranhas who make hundreds of millions while they cause much of the world’s suffering. By equipping rogue elements with the means to wage war they aid eastern european terrirists, mid eastern terrorists and many of the western world drug dealing operations.
So while we hail the federal effort in bringing Vicktor Bout to justice we also ask for the continued apprehension, arrest and prosecution of these mass murdering arms dealers. Those that are merchants of death must be brought to justice.
