* HollywoodLaw: Interpol gets portrayed as something of an international FBI, with field agents who hunt down arms traffickers. This is not the case. Interpol serves as a network to coordinate the efforts of national police combating international crimes (including arms trafficking). It has no agents who can make arrests. Interpol primarily serves to put different national police agencies in contact with each, maintain a criminal database and put out notices of wanted criminals. In any case, a US Army general would have no authority to have Interpol agents let an arms trafficker go (which they would not be arresting anyway).

While surveying his uncle's arms warehouses, one of the Russian officers says "Tell you what: buy six tanks, you get one free."
