If Mahmoud al-Mabhouh was such a dangerous man, why was there no international arrest warrant issued for him to begin with? Perhaps if the international 'law-enforcement' community took the weapons trade a bit more seriously such actions would not be necessary (not that I think that this was a wise or even expedient action). The way I see it, the trading in arms should be much more closely watched and regulated. If this is an international gray zone, then why does it suddenly become a case for international justice when there is a 'settling of accounts'?
