it looks pretty bad ass
apparently Dynecorp gives a Lloyds of London life insurance policy for a million dollars.
i just finished a class taught by them at the north carolina facility.
That training and the instructor cadre....is completely bananas. i loved it and would definitely work for them. fuck the media.
I thought one of the requirements was special forces or similar training
2 years of Combat Arms IIRC
what's the biggest difference between that and regular military
who would turn that down
I'm not military but I would work for them in a New York minute.
no because if i want to fight a war i fight it for a reason not for money
edit: unless its with the army ahahaha
who are you and why are you posting so many threads
?? do you understand what blackwater does? i thought this was the militiary subforum ,who let all the civilians in
no i have no idea what blackwater does and i base my opinion on nothing.
you do realize that it's the exact same thing as fighting if you're in the marines/army.
your commander in chief says "go fight here" and you do as your told
your commander in chief sells a contract to blackwater, and the blackwater CEO says "go fight here" and you do as your told.
they aren't going to tell blackwater to go fight a war in some place that the us doesn't already have a presence in.
I don't know why you brought this up because it really has no relevance to anything I thought or said about Blackwater or other PMCs.
It isn't the exact same thing as fighting in the Marine Corps or the Army. I feel the money in contracts spent for PMCs could be spent on the military instead.
I don't think PMCs specifically Blackwater are evil or baby killers as the media portrays them.
Something about it just seems wrong to me that a contractor can go to Iraq doing the same job as some of our military and make much more money for it.
I have training so I will be back in 52 days to read the flamming I will get from this. Have fun.
I would not.
When they get in a firefight, they get ZERO support from us. When we would normally let a coalition convoy through one of our security cordons, we tell private security convoys to GTFO and find some other route. They are the bastard redheaded hunchbacked step children. Nobody loves them, nobody gives a fuck if they survive, and nobody will come to their aid when the chips are down.
they also except all intel Jobs, not just combat 11bang bang type of people
telling to him to "QFT" when he is right makes you ignorant
read the book blackwater if you don't believe me. it might be written with some liberal spin but you can't argue the facts and true events that the book documents. noone comes to the rescue for PMCs...
would i work for them?
dude...QFT = quoted for truth.
they just opened up a new training facility here in San Diego and they are hiring.
i thought it meant quit fucking talking/typing...
my bad, not as saavy as i once was...
it means that also. they made it purposely ambiguous
Another reason why the Untied States uses Blackwaters and other contractors is because when shit goes wrong it takes the liabiility off the government and puts it on the contractor. They sometimes send the contractors to do things that might turn out the wrong way.
