Well that is interesting to know. So not only is Obama trying to get private armies, Bush was too? Somehow I am not surprised.

If any of our military is in this BlackWater they should be ashamed.

While that Black water video is based off of a few false assumptions, some of it was indeed true.

Though I think I have found something even more frightening that is occuring in the US Army
Super soldiers!

heh heh, pretty good.

As far as the BW vid I agree with you, it is a bit one sided. It's not what's going on abroad that scares me as much as right here at home. Not that actions abroad aren't important but they are less out of our control than the ones on our front doorstep. bottom line is I don't like the idea of boots on U.S. soil, doesn't matter where they come from.

Friend or Foe? I would think a mercenary group that will offer its services to the highest bidder would be considered foe since groups that have diffeent values and more money than I do can hire them.
