    -Doctors at the VA are loyal and honorable while all others are not.
    -Teachers at public schools and universities are loyal and honorable while all others are not.
    -Prosecutors/public defenders are loyal and honorable while all other lawyers are not.
    -The coachs for the US national teams are loyal and honorable while Bill Belichick is not.

    Actually, you might be on to something...

    No.

    Doctors, teachers, lawyers, and coaches do not kill for money.

    Mercenaries kill for money.

    If you're going to kill for money, at least do it while serving the people of your nation (via their democratically-elected government).

    Don't kill to make Eric Prince rich. That's immoral in my view.

    If that democratically-elected government asks a company to provide security services, how is that not "serving the people of your nation"?

    Hey Neitzluber, I'll let you read my Security and Loss Prevention research paper on Mercenaries being vital and, at worst, a necessary evil to the maintenance and protection of America. btw, is Neitzluber your Xfire handle? if so we should totally link up for some Empire Earth!

    Every contract the government hands out makes someone rich. When the government pays Boeing to develop jets to kill people, it makes Boeing rich. When the government pays Raytheon to build Tomahawk missiles to kill people, it makes Raytheon rich. When the government pays Colt to manufacture M-16s to kill people, it makes Colt rich.

    Why is this different?

    Anyways, it is a horrible idea to trust mercenaries. They are only in it for the money. There is no honor, loyalty, or sense of duty. They are just paid murderers.

    The fact that Obama has not ended the Blackwater contracts simply proves that he's not a socialist - he's not concerned with fairness or equality.
    He's only concerned with lining the pockets of the rich.
    He's a corporatist - a big-government capitalist.


    As a former contractor i can attest to you talking out of your waste ejection port.

    Pretty much all of the come from a .mil background. You really should read up on a subject before pontificating.
