    Incorrect.
    Perhaps RA would like to explain why my statement is "a lie, based on ignorance", if he has an explanation, which I doubt. I suspect this uncivil name-calling is presented only to prop up his Rambo attitude and supposed "service" as a contractor.

    What is "RA"?



    I never called you a name.


    I called your 1st claim a lie. Cause it is.

    I called your 2nd one ignorant cause it is.

    simply put, you are clueless to the contracting community and instead want to attack Americans who are contracted by our government to perform dangerous tasks with little or no recognition., only scorn from those with an axe to grind with Bush.


    Fact is. Clinton was the 1st to use Blackwater. Did you know that? Of course not. So now unless you are done bringing old basement crap up with your childish "Reverend Asshole" (RA) shctick. I suggest we stick to facts not your baseless ignorant opinion on other Americans serving thier country.

    I don't need a clue to the contracting community, only the information that they are paid too much, out of taxpayer dollars, and are unaccountable.

    I don't know what to think about people who were trained with millions of dollars of taxpayers money, then quit the military and sign up as mercenaries to get even more money from the taxpayers.

    It's certainly a far cry from the founding fathers intention of citizen soldiers.

    I think the main problem is this. When Blackwater massacred 17 civilians in Baghdad, they fell under no legal jurisdiction, and could not be arrested. This cannot happen in the military. This one example amply demonstrates why freelance armies are a bad idea.

    Yes, it is one example. one BAD example, amidst quite a few GOOD ones. we have to take the good with the bad, not just look at the negatives to make our judgements.

    Mercenaries and Private Contractors are necessary unless you'd like to see your taxes go up. And thanks to the Anti-Pinkerton act you don't have to worry about being double-blasted with the price of these contractors anyways. It is cheaper in the long run to pay private contractors than to maintain and regulate, or even restrict, our National forces with these tasks and rules. They may be seen as 'bad' to some people, but they're more a necessary evil at worst and a saving grace at best.
