The Merchant of Death: Who is Viktor Bout?

A translator and spy turned international arms dealer, Viktor Bout is to be part of a proposed prisoner swap between the US and Russia for the return of Americans Brittney Griner and Paul Whelan.Griner was found guilty on drug smuggling charges by a Russian court, and convicted to 9 years in a penal colony after 1 milligram of cannabis oil, prescribed by her American doctor, was found in her vaping pen in her luggage in Moscow. The charges are obviously a political play by Putin in response to Ukraine sanctions. If you like our content, please become a patron to get our extra premium episodes every month, as well as our public episodes ad-free. 1 Trevor Reed, a former marine who was also imprisoned in Russia after allegedly attacking a policeman, another Kremlin fabricated story, was recently released in a successful prisoner swap and he said that Brittney Griner will experience "serious threats" to her health if she is sent to a labor camp. Moscow asked for a second Russian to be added to the mix for this proposed swap, an FSB agent, Vadim Krasikov, a Russian spy / murderer, who was convicted in Germany for carrying out a killing on behalf of Russia, an act the judges called “state terrorism.” It is hard to separate fact from fiction in Bout's resume. He's believed to have been born in 1967 in then-Soviet Tajikistan. He studied as a linguist at  Moscow-based Soviet Military Institute for Foreign Languages, a training school for officers, diplomats, and in many cases, spies. He learned Portuguese and he then started his career with the Red Army as a translator in Angola. 2 When the Soviet Union broke up, arms were scattered across the 15 new nations created by the dissolution, especially Bulgaria. These countries had neither the money to pay an army nor the infrastructure to keep the weapons they'd inherited. Viktor saw an opportunity. He assembled a fleet of ex-Soviet cargo planes, massive Antonov and Ilyushin aircraft, and began shipping arms and other goods all over the world. He set up a freight charter in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates and soon became the inspiration for Lord of War, an exceptional movie featuring Eamonn Walker, Nicholas Cage, Jared Leto and Ethan Hawke. Bout kept company with African warlords and dictators such as Jean-Pierre Bemba, Masavenya and Jonas Savimbi. After 9/11, the US needed scapegoats and Bout fit the bill. By entrapment, he was captured in Bangkok, Thailand and extradited to the US where he was convicted of aiding terrorists. The judge's opinion coincides with ours: “Until DEA went after Bout, he had not committed a crime chargeable in an American court in all his years as an arms dealer. And but for the DEA approach made through this determined sting operation, there is no reason to believe that Bout would have ever committed the charges brought against him.” 3, 4 Merchant of Death DubiMiter – 9.5 1.

On this episode of Rightly Dividing, we show you the entire panoply of the One World Religion of Chrislam that be the global church of the end times. The Tribulation Saints will not be part of it, they will be the outcasts who refuse the Mark of the Beast, and remain locked outside the economic and financial system. In your King James Bible, you will see three important things to keep in mind as we study this part of prophecy. The first thing is that the Antichrist is half Jew and Muslim, the second thing is that Revelation 17 and 18 show you the Roman Catholic Church and the Vatican, respectively. And that shows you that, thirdly, the One World Religion is a tripartite creation, composed of Judaism, Islam and Roman Catholicism. Look around you right now, is there anywhere in the world you see those three things coming together? That's a trick question, don't answer it, and please join us for this live NTEB 'Rightly Dividing' King James Bible Study happening at 9PM EST tonight. The other day we brought you a stunning exclusive on the amazing amount of progress so far on the Abrahamic Family House being built in Abu Dhabi. As most of your know, this will be the headquarters for the One World Religion being put together by Pope Francis in Rome and Mohamed bin Zayed in the United Arab Emirates. Funny thing, when you look into your Bible for the end times, the two main characters are someone called the Assyrian, and a place called Mystery Babylon.

High oil prices and output have powered that growth. But beyond oil, Saudi Arabia is seeing positive signs in the non-oil economy as well, which is key for the Kingdom Vision 2030 economic and social reforms. Non-oil GDP gained 5.4% while the oil economy grew 23.1% compared to last year, according to preliminary estimates.Separately, Standard and Poors (S&P) released its headline seasonally adjusted S&P Global Saudi Arabia Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) for the whole economy this week. Though the trend for July was down from June, falling to 56.3 in July from 57.0 in June, it remained well above the neutral 50.0 mark that separates growth from contraction.17:31 - The 966 speaks with Faisal Durrani, Partner and Head of Middle East Research at Knight Frank, the London-based global real estate consultancy.

Oil prices have slipped below 100 dollars a barrel in the past couple of days. Weighing on crude price is the US Energy Information Administration's weekly inventory report, which suggested an unexpected increase in US crude oil stocks and drop in gasoline demand, despite ongoing summer driving season in the US.  While global central banks, especially the US Federal Reserve, has hiked rates to tame inflation and kill demand, OPEC+ has decided to raise its oil output goal by 100,000 barrels per day starting September. The increase is equivalent to 0.1 per cent of global demand.  It follows weeks of speculation that Biden's trip to the Middle East and Washington's clearance of missile defence system sales to Riyadh and the United Arab Emirates will bring more oil to the world market. Notably, the increase of 100,000 bpd will be one of the smallest since OPEC quotas were introduced in 1982. Ravindra Rao of Kotak Securities, for instance, expects prices to slip further in the immediate short-term. “Crude has hit fresh lows which indicates weaker sentiment. However, supply concerns may keep a floor to price close to $90/bbl level,” says Ravindra Rao, VP & Head of Commodity Research, Kotak Securities Brent prices have been volatile thus far in 2022, as the oil market reacted to the geopolitical developments amid recession fears.  Paul Hickin, Director of S&P Global Commodity Insights expects the Brent oil to climb and remain in a range of 100 - 120 dollars a barrel in the medium-term. Speaking to Business Standard, Hickin said, OPEC+ decision is a symbolic nod to the US. Spare capacity is at historic lows. Weak demand amid recession fears in the US and Europe. Russian supply has not come off as expected. Oil likely to stay over $100/barrel.  On Friday, all eyes will be on the outcome of the Reserve Bank of India's meeting on interest rates. Analysts expect the Indian central bank to hike repo rate between 35 - 50 basis points. That apart, stock specific action will continue amid the ongoing result season.

South Korea plans to join the club: countries that have sent missions to the Moon. KPLO — Korea Pathfinder Lunar Orbiter — is scheduled to launch as early as next month. If it succeeds, it'll make South Korea only the seventh nation or group of nations to reach the Moon. The all-time leader in successful Moon missions is the United States, with the Soviet Union not far behind. In fact, they had a monopoly on the Moon until late in the last century. But in the last 25 years they've been joined by China, Japan, India, and Europe. And the club soon could get even bigger. The United Arab Emirates plans to launch a mission this fall. And Mexico, Australia, Turkey, the UK, and others plan to send craft to the Moon, too. KPLO is designed mainly as a test flight. It'll build the technology — in space and on the ground — for more-ambitious missions in the future. The craft will do some science. It'll orbit the Moon from pole to pole, at an altitude of about 60 miles. From there, it'll map the surface to help find good spots for future landers and rovers. And its instruments will look for lunar resources. The list includes frozen water, uranium, silicon, and helium-3, which we'll talk about tomorrow. Those resources might someday be put to use by South Korea — potentially the next member of the “we've-been-to-the-Moon” club.  Script by Damond Benningfield Support McDonald Observatory
