Man who inspired "Lord of War" arrested

This was interesting. A Russian man who was the inspiration for the Nicholas cage film "Lord of War" (a great movie, BTW) has been arrested and charged with smuggling weapons, including rocket launchers, to the FARC rebel movement in Colombia. This man, Viktor Bout, funnelled weapons to virtually every major conflict in the world. I'm sure he's helped our government on a few occasions as well.
