They're scum anyway. I don't feel sorry for 'em.

I feel sorry for their families though. I wish them the best.

Actually it wouldn't. Most aren't taking part in the "fighting" of the war.

*sigh*

I know a lot of guys doing contracting work. Guys who served years as some of the most highly trained and dedicated men you'll ever meet. Guys that did shit that would make a normal man curl up in the fetal position and shit himself.

They're also guys who would give you the shirt of their back and walk through hell's fire for you if you asked them to.



You all keep assuming that every contractor is a "merc". Most of these guys are doing security, escorting so and so's through dangerous areas, guarding infrastructure, anti-piracy shit, etc.

Blackwater was running some actual missions, but overall these guys are just getting paid what they're worth to do the shit they're trained to do.

Just what exactly makes them "scum"?

The pervs and wife basher's part was a bit of poorly received humour. Everything else I said stands.

In my opinion, each nation should have a small defensive military, 100% funded and managed by government, using the traditional Army/Navy/Airforce structure.

Anything and everything else is bullshit. All the offensive weaponry, all the turf trolling bullshit, the foreign bases, all the private military contractors, the mercenaries, the toilet cleaners, the apple shiners, the torturers, the secret prisons, the clandestine intelligence services .... all of it.

Anyone who profits from this industrial military complex (the business of death) can go get fucked and die in a hole.

They'll get no love nor respect from me.

LOL ... I'm high on Friday ... no holding back.

I understand that. Beep beep back up the truck ... why does the largest military on Planet Earth need to hire private contractors to install toilets? What happened to the Army? Why aren't they doing their jobs? Are they on holiday?

As for private security escorts ... this the most damning direct evidence that contractors are ONLY there for the money. Who are they guarding? Other private contractors and business associates? Yes ... I thought so.

Nothing but blatant resource plundering.

They are Mercs, simple really and I see no point in really to say otherwise.

The Iraqis, and to my knowledge the Afghanis, have been very consistent in wanting the mercs out. Yes, US out but especially the mercs. They have been operating outside all jurisdiction and have incurred many crimes that haven't been pursued by any court.

No need to wonder when there are Iraqi militias that go after them, and Americans who have allowed their presence.

Anti-war rant aside, I guess all of us (granted we didn't profit largely), including every Aussie soldier as well, should just go "get fucked and die".

I mean, that statement doesn't just cover mercs, it covers every paid soldier in the world.
