Two former employees of Blackwater Worldwide have accused the private security company of defrauding the government for years by filing
double billing for the same services and charging government agencies for
two former employees of security firm Blackwater that its owner
[Erik Prince] was complicit in murder in order to cover up the deliberate killing of Iraqi civilians,
. . .
Blackwater was guilty of using
child prostitutes at its compound in Baghdad’s fortified Green Zone and that owner Erik Prince knew of this activity and did nothing to stop it.The declarations describe Blackwater as “having young girls provide oral sex to Enterprise members in the ‘Blackwater Man Camp’ in exchange for one American dollar.” They add even though Prince frequently visited this camp, he “failed to stop the ongoing use of prostitutes, including child prostitutes, by his men.”One of the statements also charges that “Prince’s North Carolina operations had an ongoing wife-swapping and sex ring, which was participated in by many of Mr. Prince’s top executives.

But that does NOT make the rest of the soldiers like the ones you encounter. I am not in My Lai, Abu Ghraib, Tiger Force...I did not do those things and for some reason no matter how many times I say this to the contrary you STILL think I am supporting their behavior. So let me try this one more time in hopes it will find a place to dig into your head.
The people who performed those atrocities are BAD BAD BAD.
I have never thought once that the soldiers at My Lai should have a free pass. Rather I think punishment should be swift and harsh once the claims were proven (which they were)
After all…sitting right here behind this monitor is a soldier who HAS opened to other possibilities. Pity you can’t but like I said…my opinion will never be bad of you.
Compare that if you would with the West's constant reinforcement of the soldier as ideal, follow orders! enforce! march!
