    This appears to be a clear example of entrapment. A young entrepreneur aiding the U.S. governments efforts in Afghanistan while saving the American taxpayer money, but undercutting well connected and wealthy American defense contractors.

    Patriotic Americans should come to the aid of this hero in the war on terror.;)

    This is a very interesting story, though it would have been better if you have left a simple link where we could read the whole next pay story. It is always a wonder how young people like the one above turn to be big time successful people but on an illegal market. Is it really that hard to earn money fairly?

    It can be very hard to win playing fairly. We hear stories like this all the time. "He was a successful drug dealer; he could have been a successful legal business man....." or some such.

    Chances are, he would have failed or could have. Much easier to make a few hundred grand selling drugs or guns than machine parts or crap on eBay. If a twelve year old inner city gang member can make allot of cash selling drugs, it really is not a difficult business to excel at.

    Chances are, that 12 year old could never hope to run a legit business.
