True, but thats mostly due to the US demand for illegal substances.

Legalizing a few of them would change that situation quickly. It would take out the risk, and therefor, the profit.

Well if Canada was and the U.S were indifferent physical positions wouldnt you be saying "Canada demand for illegal substances"?

Well, I don't live in Canada, so am not familiar with their drug laws, or drug culture.

Anyway, the US and Canada are not in different physical locations, so I don't really see your point here.

Also, I doubt Canada has a per capita death rate as high as Iraq.

I did google it, found lists of many bases, but nothing indicating which ones are CURRENTLY populated.

I know we had many camps there, and I know the troops have been withdrawn. Do you have any info stating which ones are still populated?

Do you understand Iraq borders Iran? Why would they abandon those positions? Would anyone know for sure? One thing I do know, we have big plans to invade Iran, they are surrounded by all sides. That is the reality of the situation.

The matter of who pays the mercenary is distinction without a difference.

The term "military contractor" is the santitized expression for mercenary.

The US government pays a mercenary company and the mercenary company pays its mercenaries.

The mercenaries are paid by money "donated" to the government by US taxpayers.

I hope to God you can understand that and grasp the concept that US taxpayers are still paying for "soldiers" to be in Iraq.

Official US military troops have been withdrawn - or so they tell us - just to remind you, they lied about every single detail of this illegal attack and invasion - but there are still thousands if not tens of thousands of armed to the teeth mercenaries there.

The occupation of Iraq is not over it has just changed uniforms.

Is a US taxpayer paid for mercenary subject to no American law, no Iraqi law and no international law considered a ground troop in your world?


That would be a contractor, not a US soldier.

They exist in South America as well, but they are not on government payroll, they work for private companies.

What about the number of deaths in Mexico each day? Mexico not only is the most dangerous place to be but its right on our own border. Are people incapable of getting their priorities straight. We need to be concerned where the real concern is. Here at home and on our own border.

"The occupation of Iraq is not over it has just changed uniforms. "

That I agree with completely.

The government pays a private company.

That private company pays its employees/mercenaries/soldiers NOT wearing a US uniform.
Don't have a disagreement with that statement at all.

But what I see in the media is Iraqi's killing Iraqi's.

True, but as I have stated before....
That is mainly caused by the US demand for illegal substances.

Remove the risk, and you remove the profit.

They are not going to be killing each other over something you can go pick up at WalMart.

The Lockheed X-22A took care of the Iraqi army.

I'm just surprised at the rate they are killing each other.

Now that US troops no longer occupy their land.
