    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.
     
  15. 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.

    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?

    hell yes

    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.
