    steroid allegations now? wow... what next?

    modern praetorian guard... no doubt...

    Lawsuit accuses Blackwater guards of ignoring orders.

    The AP reports that a lawsuit filed Monday on behalf of five Iraqis who were killed and two who were injured in the September Blackwater shootout accuses Blackwater bodyguards “of ignoring a direct order and abandoning their post shortly before taking part” in the shootings:

    Blackwater and State Department personnel staffing a tactical operations center “expressly directed the Blackwater shooters to stay with the official and refrain from leaving the secure area,” the complaint says. “Reasonable discovery will establish that the Blackwater shooters ignored those directives.”

    Additionally, the lawsuit notes: “One of Blackwater’s own shooters tried to stop his colleagues from indiscriminately firing upon the crowd of innocent civilians but he was unsuccessful in his efforts.”

    The complaint also accuses Blackwater of “failing to give drug tests to its guards in Baghdad — even though an estimated one in four of them was using steroids or other ‘judgment altering substances.’”

    The allegations of the use of steroids is concerning, could there be some roid rage here?? Great combination, unregulated army with huge salaries and now mix in some roids... this country has created a monster.

    That picture looks like the beginnings of a "New Village People". These wierdos definitely have some issues. Probably like hitting each other in the face after breakfast.

    Americans Love Drugs, these guys see all the "Cool Dudes" back home doing it so why shouldn't they, they probably listen to "Rap Crap", 90% of America's entertainment world and many in America's sports world all belong in REHAB.

    In a place like Iraq, what do these guys do for female (or male, for that matter) companionship? Doesn't Sharia Law get in the way of meeting fun in the supermarkets and pubs?

    quite scary, really... and gets to the core of how dangerous the "privatization of everything" cult can mutate...

    Blackwater was already big, and got exponentially more wealthy off Iraq... it's also the kind of insatiable creature that will never stop growing, and adding more equipment and arms...

    they're not far from Washington... just wanna throw that out there...

    the next administration will be democratic and will likely begin with the joint chiefs on heightened alert... that would be the wise choice...

    power is not handed over graciously by this cabal.... the stakes are too high...

    What would that have to do with anything? With that said it's not true, their 2 offices are in North Carolina and Illinois ( i know this because our company has done some logistics for them...well that and i can use the Internet). Hilarious that you try and insinuate that there is some 'foul play' because they are 'not far from Washington'.............and your wrong! Typical:rolleyes:

    Good Lord, man, whatever happened to you as a kid that made you so paranoid about people in positions of authority?? Did your mother force you memorize Lord of the Flies, or something??

    You have my pity.

    well, let's compare, shall we?

    you're afraid of imagined scenarios of perceived sexual impropriety and any "lesser" human being different than you... and i'm afraid of the police state, the signs of which are everywhere, as propogated by your administration of choice...

    anyhow, if you're going to get personal, at least get your own material and stop stealing that of your opponent who routinely dominates you and your rigid, repressed view of the world...

    You insinuated it, and if you didn't want it to go there you wouldn't have made the comment............at least own up to it when you are wrong!

    This is how are country was founded, not on big government. Nothings perfect but the difference in 'privatization' is that if someone screws up and isn't doing their job then there is someone else ready to take his place...in big government if the government screws up then you have to try and fix the government....and we all know how that works




    A police state is exactly what you will get if you take away 'privatization' .....be careful of what you wish for!
