This case is clear cut. Blackwater should be charged with fraud, murder and more. As a friend who served overseas said to me the other day, Blackwater is nothing but a group of thugs.

Will anyone be surprised to learn that Blackwater 'defrauded' the US govt. ?


I don't think so


First they 'defraud'


and then they distribute the kickbacks


The only people defrauded are the US taxpayers

the fat cats just stuff more in their offshore accounts, courtesty of Blackwater, their partners in crime

Allowing "mercs" to rampage through foreign countries shows terrible lack of morale. There's a reason those people are not in the army.

Many of them are probably borderline insane or just sick in the mind and soul. The rest is just looking for some action and a quick buck with no authority to regulate their behaviour at least somewhat.

In every country the army is bad enough, but mercs are a whole new level of corruption.
