?No war without weapons, and no weapons without "death traders"'. This job is indeed a golden one. We have to simply glance at the moving maps of geopolitics to figure out the whole issue. Globalization proves that this peculiar trader is rational: Due to the fall of the Berlin Wall, the explosion of the Eastern Block, African, Afghan, Iraqi chaos, the arms dealer felt at home worldwide. The purpose of this job is to organize flows. An arms dealer has to know the best sellers: those who slash prices and provide reliable weaponry which is simple enough to be used easily. Such armaments are found in countries that are invested in mass production, or have giant stocks coming from their faded armies; mainly satellites of the former Soviet block. Huge masses of armaments have been subjected to actual "takeover bids" in the arsenals of the Red Army, declining since the withdrawal of the troops from Afghanistan and the end of the Cold War.
