    Guess the Iraqi's have had enough of Blackwater, they are being thrown out.. but their employee's can stay if they choose to work for another contractor..

    Iraq bars Blackwater from country - Marine Corps News, news from Iraq - Marine Corps Times

    The fact that we contracted out these people and they made something like 3-4 times what a regular soldier was pulling down is straight up CRIMINAL. Its taking a giant dump on our men and women in uniform. Why couldn't we have paid our troops more, put more armor on them and given them proper care when they returned home with th emoney?

    Instead we gave these contracts to companies that don't answer to the constitution, yet in th eeyes of the Iraqi people, represent our nation.


    whoever's idea hiring Blackwater was needs to be locked the *** UP!

    Thats exactly why we hire them. They can do all sorts of things the military (legally) cant.

    That and a fetish for privatization - giving the people's money to companies looking first and foremost to profit.

    At 3 or 4 times the cost... thier illegal actions caused them the contract.
