    2) Ask yourself why the hell the American military needs to hire security? That doesn't make sense .
    3) How can the amount of war we wage be irrelevant to ethics or the use of mercenaries? That also makes no sense. Ethics is not my whole argument anyway. When it comes to killing and dying in foreign wars the chain of command should be as tight as possible and an outside contractor does not accomplish that. Blackwater damaged our world image.
    4) Didn't these pure as the driven snow contractors murder civilians in 2007 and lose some of their contract? So I guess they don't fight after all, they just kill?
    You're not always talking about the evil government and your corporate Boogeyman?

    Because the active army is overextended and US planners would rather employ professionals to perform security tasks. It frees up US troops for 1) more relevant duties and 2) allows fewer troops to be deployed. is that not obvious?


    Again, Blackwater was not tasked with combat operations and US troops don't need any help tarnishing our image.

    Straw man. No said they were "pure". US troops aren't either.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    You haven't proven anything. Try again.

    [i]I prove what I say by producing evidence that backs up my claims. Thus far I have learned that you do not.

    So again, if you're going to say that myself or my proofs are wrong, then you have to research and present credible evidence that proves I'm wrong.
    Can't prove a negative.

    Now I won’t get home until midnight. But United airlines gave me a $10.00 meal voucher. That was very generous of them.

    Mass shootings can be terrorism, but unless there is a political motivation it's typically not called terrorism.


    Except when such action is part of a war or war like action or. Well except when we are the ones taking such action.
