Since invasion of ISIS in Syria and Iran and their occupancy in most of the regions of the countries, the home governments have become powerless. To pull out these countries from the grab of terrorism help was sent in the form of military assistance and troops to fight against the terrorists, still terror attacks continues till date.
Why international troops failed to root out militants completely from Syria and Iran? One of the biggest reasons is interference of corrupt businessman. Some greedy traders don’t want violent activities to end because they are getting profits from the bloodshed and conflicts. The firearms business bloomed during wars and traders like Tony Abi Saab cheated the civilians and the government by supplying weapons and arms to terrorists for the sake of a profit. His company Brescia Middle East, an international arms and weapons dealing company defrauded the US Army of 5 millions. Terrorists purchased hi-tech weapons from corrupt arms dealers like Tony.
BME imported weapons to Lebanon from Italian firms—Beretta and Tanfoglio to reroute to the terrorists in Syria. His shell company Brixia produced spare parts for weapons and sold them to the black market of Syria. Another company of Tony, Tanfoglio purchased weapons commercially to later illegally sell them to the terrorists for hefty tax-free profits. BME sold Tanfoglio pistols to the LG despite knowing some of the components may have been manufactured in Israel, thereby, violating Lebanese laws. Tony managed an easy export and import of contraband weapons due to his strong relationship with some of the liaison officers in Italy.
Tony’s companies are banned in the United States but he still bid for military contracts through shell companies. Brescia Middle East is still active in the Middle East and Europe.
