Is Blackwater the Private Mercenary Army of the Oligarchy?


www.truthnews.us

As a choice example of corporate interest trumping the will of the people, consider Blackwater Worldwide. “Government security contractor Blackwater Worldwide reaffirmed plans Wednesday to build a rural training camp, a day after residents recalled five town officials who endorsed the project involving the North Carolina-based company,” reports the Associated Press. “The company wants to build 11 firing ranges, a driving track and a helipad in a valley just north of Potrero, a sleepy hamlet of a
Potrero residents have repeatedly demonstrated their disapproval of Blackwater’s move into their community. But, of course, this does not matter. Regardless of what the people want, declared Brian Bonfiglio, Blackwater VP, the move is underway, no matter “who’s sitting in that seat,” that is to say the seat occupied by the San Diego County board of supervisors. “Voters gave the boot by wide margins to members of the advisory planning board,” notes the Associated Press.

“Americans tend to think in an American way, and therefore nobody seems to have noticed that the location of this camp is right on the US-Mexico border, just a few miles from Tecate.” writes Nancy Conroy. From an international perspective, there are a number of geopolitical reasons that could explain why this border location was selected. This is probably not merely an issue for the local planning commission, given that the idea of mercenaries along the border has broader international implications…. A Blackwater camp on the border may be a covert attempt to militarize the border without going through congressional oversight or public debate. A so-called ‘training camp’ could probably also function as an operational base. Perhaps Blackwater will obtain government contracts to patrol the border, gradually edging out US agents and putting border security into the hands of a private army away from public scrutiny.”


i had to include this paragraph as it suggests an alternate reason to set up a camp near the Mexican border. Pretty tricky huh. Man, this ticks me off!! Is this what we really need? Isn't our military good enough? How can Blackwater be accused of not being justified of the killing of Iraqi people yet they can just set up shop wherever and whenever they want. It seems like the government is going right along with them.
I want to know how you would feel if Blackwater or another mercenary agency wanted to set up a "camp" in your town.

... Potrero residents have repeatedly demonstrated their disapproval of Blackwater’s move into their community....



When the 5 council members voted their vote was binding,
regardless If they were later recalled.,, that does not change the vote for approval of a Blackwater facility.


sure there's a faction or group with am agenda pushing for the 'semi-fortress' in that particular area - - for some particular and probably classified reasons ( i recall a news report of many or even dozens of Tunnels for drug trafficking in the region)
One may view or spin the item as 'Oligarchs taking over'
but the PTB have a quiver full of arrows on how to gain what they need...
emminent domain is another way to gain the land to utilize as they see fit

they can 'condemn' the acres needed
they can declare emergency powers.... to "protect the community"
or any number of other avenues


look toward the OSP (VP Cheneys, Office of Special Plans)
as your elusive 'oligarch'

I wouldn't be surprised if Cheney is the one allowing this to happen from afar. We all know how he is linked to his own companies getting HUGE contracts. It angers me that all they have to do is give some bogus reason why they need a certain area and they get to do whatever they want with it.
