Viktor Bout, an infamous reputed (until found guilty) international arms-trader, reportedly selling to everyone from the Taleban to the Americans, was arrested in Thailand last year in a sting operation set up by the FBI to supply arms to the Colombian FARC rebel movement.

My friends Alex Harrowell, Kathryn Cramer, above all Douglas Farah and many others in the blogosphere played various roles in his downfall.
Except is this really his downfall? The story has not finished yet ... much much more to unfold!
