As most here know, Erik Prince is the founder of Blackwater, a US private army (a.k.a. XE Services, Academi, and now Constellis Holdings) that is used
in black ops around the world (committed war crimes in Iraq for example). He is a classic mercenary and is a secret member of the National Security
Council. It worries me that such an individual will be sitting alongside Bannon and advising Trump.
"Notorious Mercenary is Advising Trump"
One of his main goals seems to be to privatise refugee and migrant flows in North Africa through his private army. He basically wants to set up a
military zone in southern Libya to militarise that area to stop migrants. Of course that would require a lot of US support.
"Blackwater founder Erik Prince wants to privatise Europe’s migrant crisis."
He also told CNN that it is time a "strong leader" stopped the conflict and it would be a "quick win" for Trump (disgusting to use that language
about war). With him on the NSC, we could see movements into Libya in the nearish future. It would also be a way of Trump getting military experience
under his belt, which appeals to incoming leaders llike Trump.
"Blackwater founder on solving migrant crisis"
I say soon, but he is already bombing the country as seen in this interesting opinion piece from Malta. Russia is also heavily involved, which makes
Libya an interesting flashpoint that has gone under the media's radar.
"Trump, Putin and Libya"
He is bombing Libya using rejigged "air tractors" in the United Arab Emirates airforce. Nothing shady here.
"On Jan. 11, 2017, Intelligence Online — a professional journal covering the world’s intelligence services — revealed that the pilots of Air
Tractor attack planes flying from Al Khadim air base in Libya are private contractors working for Erik Prince, the founder of the company formerly
known as Blackwater. War Is Boring’s own sources in Libya confirmed the assertion. Our sources said that the pilots flying the United Arab Emirates
Air Force IOMAX AT-802 Air Tractors — converted crop-dusters — are mercenaries and aren’t Arabs.
Most of the for-profit aviators are American, according to IOL. Prince denied involvement in the UAE air operations."
I think Prince is fascinating from a strategic perspective and I wish more attention was paid to him. But most worrying of all is that the man seems
to be a psychopath, perhaps even making Bannon seem like a pussycat.
"In an affidavit lodged with a court in Virginia, one of the witnesses said that Mr Prince "views himself as a Christian crusader tasked with
eliminating Muslims and the Islamic faith from the globe." "
Everyone should also know he is Betsy Devos' brother, which goes some way to explaining her influence. He is a rapid Christian supremacist so let's
keep an eye on his actions.
I hope this thread can serve as a way of monitoring his actions and influence under Trump.
