As we've mentioned before, one of DWT's neighbors is helping with a rebuilding project in Baghdad. He's running it and has been living over there. He told me that he stipulated in his contract that he will not be forced to use Blackwater personell in anything to do with his project. He threatened not to work on the project until this was agreed to. Run by a big Republican donor and Bush crony, Erik Prince, in the Iraqi consciousness Blackwater is exactly what the Hessians were in the early U.S. consciousness. They are seen as vicious mercenaries run by one of the worst of the war profiteer companies.

Today we find out that the government of Iraq has cancelled Blackwell's license to operate in their country-- in effect reducing the American military presense by as many troops as Petraeus and Bush claim they will do... soon. This morning CNN reports pretty much what my neighbor has been telling me for a couple of years: the perception among Iraqi civilians-- and this is borne out by years of grisly statistics-- is that Blackwater mercenaries, far, far more than American military personell, treat Iraqis like dogs and shoot them for sport.
Iraq's Interior Ministry has revoked the license of Blackwater USA, an American security firm whose contractors are blamed for a Sunday gunbattle in Baghdad that left eight civilians dead. The U.S. State Department said it plans to investigate what it calls a "terrible incident."

...An Interior Ministry spokesman, Brig. Gen. Abdul Kareem Khalaf, said, "We have revoked Blackwater's license to operate in Iraq. As of now they are not allowed to operate anywhere in the Republic of Iraq. The investigation is ongoing, and all those responsible for Sunday's killing will be referred to Iraqi justice."

The Bush Regime will, no doubt, remind the puppet government in the Greed Zone who's really running the show and I expect that it will soon be kiss and make up time between Maliki's Greed Zone operation and Blackwater.

Romney, who, like Giuliani, has an atrocious record of hiring really unsuitable people to work for him-- Larry Craig, Jim McCrery and David Diapers Vitter are just three recent examples-- just hired a Blackwater vice-president as his terrorism policy advisor.

Erik Prince is a Christian, a former Navy SEAL and a Republican. I'm sure that in your mind that automatically makes him the scum of the Earth. The company he started with two other Navy SEALs has lost 30 men in Iraq while providing security for the state department. BTW they only employ about 1000 people in Iraq.

Just as the left would brand the U.S. Army based on Abu Ghraid, so do you brand this company base on the actions of a few individuals who came under attack!

I guess you would also classify the Secret Service as a private Republican army of facist mercenaries! After all, they are being paid to protect the hated criminal liar, George Bush!

Why don't you lay off the hate speech until the investigation is complete.

"Why don't you lay off the hate speech until the investigation is complete."

Republican's favorite new mantra. Can't blame 'em. Nearly every fucking Republican is being investigated for corruption or gay sex in a toilet.

The investigations into Blackwater have been completed. The results are not pretty.

That Erik Prince is a Christian and former Navy SEAL don't make him scum of the earth. That he is a religious fanatic that abuses what Christianity is all about makes him scum of the earth.

Being a Republican doesn't help.

The Secret Service isn't gouging the American public as their employees run amok in a foreign land killing innocent people.

My fear is that these monkeys end up back on our shores with a lot of trigger-rage in their hearts.

Come on now, isn't the Democratic party the party of gay liberation. Don't you guys embrace the gay lifestyle? Oh, I guess it has to be a Democrat gay lifestyle.

The investigation has NOT been completed!

Nothing worse than a group of men earning a living protecting Americans. Guess what, cops sometimes kill innocent peopl; care to damn all police departments in America?

I see that DownWithTyranny is DownWithDissent! Only interested in a one sided view of the world; his and those that agree with him. He has removed several of my posts.

It sure can be flattering to see in "print" only those that agree but it is intellectual cowardice to remove opposing views!

I guess it doesn't really matter, not too many people posting here anyway. It is sort of boring when everyone has the same opinion!

You guys have fun on your little Bush Bashing site.
