Even if Bout has done all he is accused of and more, and that's not likely, it's still small time. The real money is in state sanctioned 'legal' weapons of war where the U.S. is number one by far - it's the only industry left. Combat planes are the big seller (now we just give 'em away to certain clients). It makes the trade in AK47's and small missiles peanuts in comparison. The only comparable money maker is drugs and with the CIA having a hand in much of that trade in Afghanistan, Columbia and elsewhere, it's only logical that arms, dope and war will walk hand in hand. It makes the bankers smile. It's pretty plain to me that this is about FARC, anyway. I love the smell of napalm in the morning - in Caracas.
