Truth in fiction.

Some time back there was a movie that didn’t do very well in theatres called the Lord of War. It starred Nicholas Cage as an international arms dealer and all his strange, dangerous, disturbing adventures. The movie was fictional, but based on real accounts from real arms deals. It was a great movie.

Well, the Village Voice has done a piece on the real Lord of War, whom they refer to as the Merchant of War, Monzer al-Kassar, a/k/a the “Prince of Marbella”. Go read the story. These are the guys we need to go after. Here is the front-line in the war on terror.
