if russia sent mercs to chechnya, they would be russian mercs in chechnya. if they came from somewhere else, they would be mercs from somewhere else in chechnya. who they work for and where they are from are two different things.
Originally posted by ArchAngelIf American citizens hired as Mercs working for a foreign dictatorship were caught randomly shooting citizens in an occupation zone, and I posted a thread titled 'US Mercs gun down innocents' would you let that stand, or would you want them re-titled?
The denialism would again kick in and you would demand that they were not US Mercs because they were not under the command of US Forces.
your title for this thread is wrong. the only one in denial is you. you have even admitted that the shooters are not american.

"South African Mercenaries, working for a British Security firm, Hired by the Americans are shooting civilians!"
There are no clues as to the shooter but either a Scottish or Irish accent can be heard in at least one of the clips above Elvis Presley's Mystery Train, the music which accompanies the video.
The Foreign Office has also confirmed that it is investigating the contents of the video in conjunction with Aegis, one of the biggest security companies operating in Iraq. The company was recently awarded a £220 million security contract in Iraq by the United States government. Aegis conducts a number of security duties and helped with the collection of ballot papers in the country's recent referendum

Wow, you are wrong and I know you realize it, and so does every other member on here but yet your stubbornness wont allow you to step up and admit it. You will still continue to say you are right when every fact points against you.

No way man. If it weren't for the US, I wouldn't be in the US. I have a gun and I secure my domicile. That makes me a US merc, plain and simple.
You're just a denialist.
