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...

United States taxpayers will pay up to $293 million for a contract to Aegis Defence Services of London, a new company created by Spicer. (Spicer was the chief executive officer for Sandline, which first made the headlines in the British media when Spicer was jailed in Papua New Guinea in 1997 for attempting to mount an invasion of the island of Bougainville and later for this role in smuggling arms to Sierra Leone in 1998 in violation of a United Nations embargo.)
