Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

mercenaries to protect american troops?

Make no mistake about it, dudes and dudettes, we're living in a brave new world.

Up until not so long ago, the use of mercenaries was a sure sign that some shady regime was up to no good. But not, apparently, in this age of privatization. Killing and armed intervention is now Big Business. Soon US shareholders in companies such as Blackwater will be baying for blood globally just to get their dividends up.

Cut-to Iraq: "At least 18 000 mercenaries, many of them tasked to protect US troops and personnel..."

Say what? US troops need to be protected by US mercenaries? Oh really? Mind boggling.

I give up...
