Viktor Bout Found Guilty of Trying to Sell Arms to the FARC

first_img On November 2, a U.S. jury found former Russian arms trafficker Viktor Bout guilty of having agreed to sell arms to individuals he believed were guerrillas belonging to the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), with plans to attack U.S. soldiers. Bout, a former Soviet Air Force officer whose story inspired the book Merchant of Death, was arrested in Bangkok, Thailand, in 2008, in an undercover operation by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), and extradited to the United States in 2010 to face terrorism-related charges. The jury deliberated for almost a day before rendering its verdict in a federal court in Manhattan, in New York City. Bout was found guilty of two charges of conspiracy to murder U.S. citizens and officials and one charge of conspiracy to sell anti-aircraft missiles and provide material support to a terrorist organization. The Russian citizen faces a sentence of between 25 years to life in prison. “It was a tough case,” Bout’s attorney, Kenneth Kaplan, told reporters. “We gave it a good fight. The fight is not over. He has various legal options,” he added. Kaplan said that he will appeal the conviction after sentencing, scheduled for February 8. U.S. informants posed as FARC arms buyers and met with Bout in Thailand to purchase military weaponry, which the Russian showed himself ready to provide, according to prosecutors. Two DEA informants who posed as FARC leaders testified against Bout at trial. Andrew Smulian, the Russian’s former business partner, also testified after pleading guilty to participating in the agreement with the guerilla group. By Dialogo November 04, 2011last_img read more

Just because one is like 12 miles north doesn’t mean that plenty of people wouldn’t freqeunt another one. The Mulvane Casino is a state ran casino. Why can we not have a county ran casino and quickly pay for it through county taxpayer money. I know what people are thinking I don’t want to pay any more taxes but I am sure if an intelligent individual devised a plan financially part of it can be paid through taxes and the rest through a private loan. Once this is all paid off it will significantly improve Wellington’s economy. Sure drugs and questionable individuals will be around more but aren’t they already? Additional county revenue will give the Sherriffs office a chance to hire additional task forces, deputies etc. Give people a reason to come to Wellington not consistently re-do roads (ie roundabout) expecting Wellington’s economic structure to change.

Real survive Juve scare to reach CL semis

first_imgMario Mandzukic’s two first-half headers kept the dream alive before Blaise Matuidi capitalised on a Keylor Navas error to pull the Italians level with half an hour left.But, just as a thrilling second leg looked to be heading for extra time, English referee Michael Oliver awarded Real a penalty in stoppage time.With the game in the 97th minute, Ronaldo made no mistake from 12 yards, ensuring a 3-1 defeat on the night but a 4-3 win on aggregate.Gianluigi Buffon, making his 125th and perhaps final Champions League appearance before retirement, was sent off for his protests. If it is to be the 40-year-old’s European farewell, it was a sad way to end.On Wednesday morning, Madrid newspaper Marca had revelled in Barcelona’s collapse against Roma the night before with the headline ‘Total Failure’, but Zinedine Zidane’s side came within a whisker of trumping that with an emphatic loss on their own patch.Gianluigi Buffon is awarded a red card by referee Michael Oliver for complaining at the awarding of a stoppage time penalty. Photo D/MReal conceded the opener after just 76 seconds, the fastest they have ever conceded at home in the Champions League.But Ronaldo came up trumps again, scoring in his 11th consecutive fixture in this competition, extending his own record, and keeping Real on course for a third consecutive European triumph.Zidane had handed Gareth Bale his first Champions League start since September but this was far from a night of redemption for the Welshman. He was hauled off at half-time, with Real two down, and replaced by Marco Asensio.– Real exposed –Edin Dzeko needed six minutes to set Roma on their way against Barcelona, but Juve needed just over one.Sami Khedira hung a deep cross to the back post where Mandzukic powered a header past Navas.His second, eight minutes before half-time, was almost a carbon copy. This time it was substitute Stephan Lichtsteiner, on for Mattia De Sciglio, who was given too much space by Marcelo to cross. Again Mandzukic jumped higher than Dani Carvajal as he nodded between Navas’ right hand and the near post.In between, Real had dictated possession and created chances of their own, but Buffon was in imperious form. Just after Mandzukic got his second goal, Raphael Varane rattled the crossbar with a header to which Buffon got his fingertips.Real, though, were shaky at the back, the channel between Marcelo and 21-year-old Jesus Vallejo regularly offering Juve hope.Buffon (L) was sent off for protesting after the penalty award© AFP OSCAR DEL POZOBale’s night was up at half-time as he and Casemiro were replaced by Zidane’s tried-and-trusted duo in Europe of Vazquez and Asensio.However, Real’s defensive problems were exposed again on the hour.Douglas Costa crossed from the right but Navas dropped the ball, allowing Matuidi to stab home and level the tie.Isco drove towards the bottom corner but Buffon’s hand was there and the game looked to be drifting towards extra-time until the 93rd minute.Hanging in the air at the back post, Ronaldo nodded down to Vazquez who looked certain to score from five yards before Medhi Benatia desperately challenged him from behind.Oliver pointed to the spot much and in the ensuing chaos, Buffon was sent off for his protests.Wojciech Szczesny came on to face the decisive strike of the game. Ronaldo exhaled and slammed it into the top right-hand corner to take Real into the semi-finals. 0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Nerveless: Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates his 97th minute winner© AFP OSCAR DEL POZOMADRID, Spain, Apr 11 – Cristiano Ronaldo rescued Real Madrid from a shock Champions League exit as his injury-time penalty allowed the holders to edge out Juventus in the most dramatic of quarter-finals on Wednesday, taking them through despite a 3-1 defeat.Real had looked certain to make the last four following last week’s 3-0 first-leg victory in Turin, but Juve staged a sensational comeback in the return at the Santiago Bernabeu.last_img read more
