Some quick hints:

1. The Devil is a user among us but not a moderator or anybody with any authority (in this forum anyway)...

2. His namesake is a world famous Red one from a certain European country (and I suspect he's from that country too... but no evidence)...

3. Of his 2 newly acquired hitmen, one is from a certain American state and the other is related to the number 7...

Think of synonyms to the word hitmen...:idea:

Okay, no more mystery...

The European country from which the Devil (and his Red namesake) came was the Netherlands.

The American state mentioned was Texas.

The association to the number 7 is about a certain period of days...

The synonym to the word hitmen is a 7-letter word starting with k (plural form)...

And if all these are not obvious enough, I'll reveal the answer next time, after someone gives it a go...

You are talking about him who has aquired a weekly assassin killer and a Texas jigsaw killer. But I'm not sure what you mean by Red namesake, or why he is a devil...

Oh, I assumed everyone is familiar of the Manchester United football club, which has a nickname called the Red Devils, and their world famous Dutch player, who shares the same first name of our subject here...:)

You see, sometimes calling somebody a devil can be a compliment, especially if he keeps providing evil and demonic puzzles to entertain everybody...

That explains it. I do know their famous dutch player, but I didn't know about the ManU nickname. Calling someone a devil can certainly be a compliment, I guessed your riddle was intended to be one.

That's true...:) Speaking of the devil, I wonder if he'll ever come here and discover this riddle thread before it sinks to the later pages... Perhaps he's busy following his namesake's progress in the World Cup...:D

Maybe Ruud's brushing up on his football skills for the match against Portugal and hasn't had time to visit lately:!:
