I am giving you the benefit of the doubt about how you feel versus facts I gathered from people on the ground and shit roaming the Internet but hey, those could be some Hollywood productions by some libs to smear the good names of those contractors that look out for our interests. I might be wrong but show me where
I'm sure they feel the same way we felt about "overpayed" civilians when I was in Vietnam, it doesn't mean that what they do isn't important to the war effort. More importantly it doesn't mean that your family members know exactly what those civilians are doing, or how they were told to handle situations..
As to the stuff "roaming the internet" believe what you want, it's worth every cent you paid for it...

Oh how would you explain their constant refusal to listen to the military about heading into some areas then they end up calling for rescue? That was one complaint I gathered among many. So we should blindly support their actions even if we are not privy to them? Are we too immature to understand what the big guys need to do? By the way, unlike Vietnam these "civilians" are armed to the teeth. Let me guess, they are called mercenary, oh no, I didn't, I called them a bad word, shame on me, please Brucy don't call the authorities on me again

Yes there is a sense in trying unless you're scared that you would sound foolish defending murderers.
Of course if you can prove to us that those mercenaries are working for us, the People of the United States, and not some fat rats getting rich as we delve deeper into wars and mayhem then by all means I am all ears. The burden is on you since you want to deny what all of us are aware of unless again we are fools and you are privy to what only God and a select chosen few know

Wow, finally.

First sensible thing you have ever said here.

Whether you like it or not, someday somebody will have to do exactly that.

Just like Vietnam.

That day is closer than you think. The people are fed up.

The war is only being prosecuted because of some personal vision that only Bush and Cheney can see, and supported by neocon Reich Wing nut jobs. Support the troops doesn't cut it anymore, because people are finally discovering thedifference between the policymakers and those forced to carry it out.

What is it about the concept of the pawns on the chessboard and the hand that moves them that continues to elude you, Bottomfeeder1?

Just admit it, you're sticking up to those mercenaries because they got GUNZ and they look so cool killing them brown people yeeeha. Live targets baby, can't get any better than that. Just make sure you count them spent cartridges so you can bill the US government for the protection You know like $500 a piece, just like them toilet seats, you know Cost Plus thingy in action.
Do you think the Marines bills those idiots when they call in to be extracted because they are stuck in some hole cornered by towel heads? What's the going rate to supply a single bottle of water to our troops again?

Come on Bruce, get in and get dirty baby or else just come forward and at least admit that all of the above is true
