Another “Lord of War” character on Trial

    Yuri Orlov (Nicolas Cage) and André Baptiste Jr. (Sammi Rotibi)

    Charles “Chuckie” Taylor Jr, son of former Liberian leader Charles Taylor, on whom the character André Baptiste Jr. in the movie “Lord of War” is based is now on trial in the US on eight offenses, five or which are for torture.

    He is depicted in the film testing his newly acquired arms, sold to him by Yuri Orlov (aka. Viktor Bout), on civilians at a nearby camp.

    Andre Baptiste Jr.: Can you bring me the gun of Rambo?
    Yuri Orlov: Part One, Two, or Three?
    Andre Baptiste Jr.: I’ve only seen Part One.

    His father, also depicted in the movie is on trial for war crimes at the Hague and Bout is facing an extradition hearing in Thailand.

    If you have not seen Lord of Ware I highly recommend it. It is one of my favorite movies.
