the worlds largest arms dealer used to operate out of sharjah with impunity, its a handy location and i'm pretty sure there are still vast quantities of munitions etc transiting the UAE legally and illegally every year.
Oh I'm not disagreeing, I'm just saying the legal side is stitched up tight.

I'd think anywhere were you have a land border such as those in the ME thinks often slip in and out.

I know when I lived in Kuwait we often technically ended up across the border in Saudi when we were working on one site.

ha! thats one episode I am sure the authorities want to put behind them for good

I love this excerpt from his 'official' website http://www.victorbout.com/

"In reality Victor Bout is not, and never was an arms dealer, nor had he a business empire that spanned the globe. So what was the actual business of Victor Bout, and how many aircraft did he own, who were the employees, and where did the business operate? Here're the facts about Aircess, and the other ventures of Victor Bout."

but it ends there I want to read more
