For that, Fallujah was flattened by the US military.
Oh give it a break... fallujah needed to be cleaned out anyway.. remember what was going on between the two fallujah invasions?
There were dozens of people who had their heads cut off with a rusty knife, not just Americans either, people from many nations were also
Remember what happened after the second invastion of fallujah? Pretty much nothing, the kidnappings slowed to a crawl and the beheadings pretty much
Let me guess, next youre going to tell me that was just a coincidence?
There was no relation to the beheadings ending and the invasion of fallujah.
Dont even try and twist it around by talking about any civilians killed in crossfire either. Even though dead is dead, how it happens DOES matter.
it is just as sad for a civilian to die in crossfire and a hostage dying at the hands of his captors but where the difference comes in is
accountability and intent.
99% of the time when a civilian dies because of a soldier it is an accident and is unintentional.
When a hostage dies by their captors it is INTENTIONAL 100% of the time.. those knives didnt just slip across their throats 20 times untill their head
was severed from their neck..
Back to blackwater, ive never liked the idea of a private, corporate run military. They are nothing more than cold blooded killers, mercenaries.
There are already to many corporate hands in wars, haliburton etc.. but when there is a business where their soul income is brought in from war.. then
that is a BAD IDEA.
Blackwater should be not be allowed to operate anywhere in the United States or at least heavily regulated
