NEW YORK – A former Soviet military officer dubbed the "Merchant of Death" for allegedly selling an arsenal of weapons that would be "the envy of some small countries" was in the United States on Wednesday to face justice, a prosecutor announced, refusing to address the possibility that the extradition had chilled U.S.-Russian relations.
U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara repeatedly responded to questions at a news conference about the relations between the countries by saying Viktor Bout was brought to the United States after prosecutors successfully sought an indictment and an extradition based on evidence collected during a long-running Drug Enforcement Administration probe.
Russia Consul General Andrey Yushmanov and Vice Consul Alexander Otchainov arrived at the Metropolitan Correctional Center after the hearing to visit Bout. Yushmanov said they were there to make sure he gets his full legal rights and to show "consul support of our citizen." The prison is located next to the federal courthouse in Manhattan.
Yushmanov said Bout was in solitary confinement, and called that "a rather tough condition of incarceration." He said Bout looks tired but was in "vigorous" spirit. He said Bout asked them to make contact with his family.

"The so-called Merchant of Death is now a federal inmate," Bharara said after Bout was flown from Thailand to a suburban New York airport on Tuesday to face charges that he offered to sell millions of dollars of weapons to a terrorist group that wanted to kill Americans. "No one should ever think he can plot to kill Americans with impunity."
He praised the DEA for "courageous and groundbreaking work," along with the agency's partners in Curacao, Copenhagen and Bucharest.
The Russian Foreign Ministry had said Thailand's decision to extradite him was "unlawful," purely political and resulted from U.S. pressure. Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in remarks broadcast on Russian television Tuesday that the Thai government's decision was "an example of glaring injustice."
Bout said he was a vegetarian, ate salad, drank a lot of water, slept and listened to classical music, the official said.
Thomas Harrigan, DEA chief of operations, told The Associated Press that the arrest, extradition and prosecution of Bout were "a victory for us all."
He said the case was especially important because "of the access Mr. Bout had to weapons" and his ability to spread them to remote parts of the world.
"We go where the evidence takes us," Harrigan said, noting that what started as a drug probe grew into an international weapons smuggling investigation that took agents halfway around the globe.
At the news conference, Harrigan said evidence would show that Bout "said he preferred murdering Americans." He predicted tens of thousands of people could have died if Bout made the weapons deliveries he promised.
"For Viktor Bout, justice will finally be served," he said.
He was arrested in March 2008 at a Bangkok hotel after a DEA sting operation using informants who posed as officials of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, also known as the FARC, classified by Washington as a narco-terrorist group.
Bharara said Bout offered to supply more than 700 surface-to-air missiles, 5,000 AK-47 assault rifles and millions of rounds of ammunition, along with ultralight airplanes that could be outfitted with grenade launchers and missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles with a range of more than 200 kilometers.
"It was an arsenal that would be the envy of some small countries," he said.

BEIRUT 1/7/2012— As Arab League monitors prepared a report on Syria's compliance with its agreement to halt violence against protesters, a senior general reportedly said on live TV he was defecting from the regime's army with up to 50 of his soldiers.

Colonel Afeef Mahmoud Suleiman made the announcement live on Al-Jazeera's Arabic News channel on Saturday, the news organization reported.

Flanked by a group of his soldiers, Suleimen said he wanted to keep protesters safe. Al-Jazeera English translated his remarks from Arabic.

"We are from the army and we have defected because the government is killing civilian protesters," he said. "The Syrian army attacked Hama with heavy weapons, air raids and heavy fire from tanks."

Also on Friday, the prime minister of Qatar said Syria was not implementing the deal with the Arab League aimed at ending a bloody crackdown on nearly 10 months of unrest, and added that Arab League monitors could not stay there to "waste time".

Claro, se atreven a pedir que ahora los desgobierne una elite bancaria ademas de la creacion de su propio Wall Street. Mejor que se queden como estan, la ignorancia no los deja ver que la alternativa es inclusive peor. Que tomen ejemplo de los americanos.

The ruler of the Gulf state of Qatar has said Arab countries should send troops into Syria to stop government forces killing civilians there.

Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani told US television channel CBS "some troops should go to stop the killing".

It is the first time an Arab leader has publicly called for military intervention in Syria.

More than 5,000 civilians have been killed since anti-government protests erupted in Syria in March, the UN says.

Qatar was the first Arab country to join the Nato-led operation in Libya, which led to the downfall of Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi.
