wow this thread made me laugh so much. obviously youre all uninformed, you read a book written by some liberal and you think your a pro on private
contractors. HAHA. first, they are not a sector of the government, or mercaneries, secret military organization, or any other government funded
entity, they are all civilians. civilians workin contracts as personal security in foreign countries, and they ONLY engage in a firefight (utilizing
precision shots) when they need to defend themselves, and only then. a basic rundown, this is how it works; the company gets a phone call from a
mayor, governor, prime minister of another country, or whoever it may be, and they say hey i need a body guard for a couple weeks for this much money,
the Ops chief calls the employees and asks who wants the contract, and the job gets done. its really that simple, believe it or not. you may be
saying to yourself "this guy is crazy, he doesnt know what hes talkin about", but i do. i have PERSONAL EXPERIENCE in this business. the government
isnt launching a blackwater kill sqaud to come to your house tonight and kill your family. i know its a cool thought for you, but your not of any
importance, get over it.
the blackwater company has always been in the U.S., they didnt just sneak in here and set up camp. were right here in moyock, north carolina. come by
and watch what we really do, you may learn something, and your views and opinions may change. blackwater operates in many countries worldwide, some of
which you probably havent heard of. the thing said about having as many contractors in iraq and afghanistan as the U.S. does troops is BS. theres
roughly 1500 blackwater personel in both countries, doing anything from logistical support, convoy security, military transitional training teams,
principle security, 'terps, and intel teams, assisting the iraqi police and U.S. military in medical evacuations and supply drops.
also, if you didnt know, blackwater and other companies have built hospitals, and provided many supplies to third world countries, so YES they have
done humanitarian aid missions. WERE NOT a bunch off murderers.
when erik is being interviewed on CNN, the reason he doesnt sweat it is because, in this line of work youre constantly under investigation. everything
is in question.
haha once again i laugh. nor the military or any government organization answer to the people, it doesnt matter how much the people complain. guess
what? private companies dont care either.
i may sound like one of the "others", and i guess i am, but do your own research next time. dont read some hippies liberal perspective book, or
watch CNN videos all day. make a stop in Moyock, NC.
