  • On a wing and prayer exiled oligarch Boris Berezovsky's days of legitimizing crimes through our civil courts of law will be brought to an end before this trial is concluded in the U,K. He is confronting what I hope is a promising indictment by the U.S. Treasury's Undersecretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence that will include the forfeiture of his worldwide assets. A not so minor matter of 1) sales of weapons to jihadists and military insurgents in the Caucasus Emirates and 2) orchestrating the acquisition of Iranian crude oil through General Alexandre Sharkov, then Chief of the National Security and Defense Council of the Ukraine, 500,000 BPD of Iranian crude oil marketed to and through Holly Corporation of Dallas, TX, the proceeds from which were used by Iran to purchase weapons from the Ukraine and Russia.

    Violations of the Trading with the Enemy Act are not as readily whitewashed as the crimes with which he stands convicted of in Russia and in Brazil. It is doubtful an extradition request from the U.S. to face charges of trafficking in weapons to terrorists and in orchestrating the acquisition of Iran crude oil with proceeds used to by Iran to acquire weapons will be met with allegations of being politically motivated. One might call it treason, would you not agree?

  • I'd much rather see how this plays out than see the US carry out their global policing.
