Blackwater and get paid $600 a day or more. You will get to work beside our troops in Iraq who get paid a tenth of that. BlackWater is becoming the largest private military in the world. They have their on Air Force and some have reported they are 250,000 troops strong. These days war is big business.

You are probably right but I bet that number is not to far off. It has been reported that they have that many employees. That is not a fact. No one really knows for sure because that information is kept quite. The USA has paid them an estimated 3/4 of billion dollars since 2004. That is what the Bush administration has disclosed but it is probably more than that. They have troops all over the world. It is a fact they are becoming the largest private military in the world.

Blackwater was a company that didn't exist a decade ago. The company was incorporated in late 1996 as the Blackwater Lodge and Training Center and was sited on 5,000 acres spanning two counties in North Carolina on the Great Dismal Swamp. Though the original, publicly-stated plan was to build a sportsman's paradise with outdoor shooting ranges, early company literature also indicated that the company intended to take advantage of accelerated government outsourcing of security and firearms-related training. Today it's risen to become one of the most powerful private actors in the so-called global war on terror. It currently has operatives in nine countries around the world. The vice president of the company says that they have 21,000 private forces on standby that could be deployed at a moment's notice. They were also an important operative after Katrina in New Orleans, Mississippi and Texas. Blackwater, out of its operations in Katrina, started a whole new division of the company for domestic operations, and they began aggressively pursuing more markets inside of the United States.

Some of the best-paid U.S. mercenaries in Iraq can clear $30,000 in one month, much of it tax-free, which a lot of U.S. soldiers get paid in one year, and they're in the exact same war zone. What message does it send to those soldiers who are being forced to go over there right now? It sends them a message that the mercenaries are more important to the administration, they're paid much better, they have better equipment; or it sends a message that you should just leave the military and go on over to the mercenary sector. So much of this jumping ship has happened that there is slang in Iraq now for going to the private sector from the military. They call it "going Blackwater."

War is Big Business.

War is a racket. Most people know that but do not understand the implications of wars fought by corporations, with corporate employees, to generate profits for stockholders. War racketeers provide bodies, weapons and supplies; profits are maximized based upon the quantity of bodies killed and wounded, the volumes of weapons and supplies used or destroyed and the amount of property damaged. Enter Halliburton, the Carlisle Group, Science Applications International, Raytheon, Dynacorp and Blackwater USA. Blackwater supplies the services of personnel the mind control media refers to as "contractors." Historically, these "hired guns" are known as "soldiers of fortune" and "mercenaries." The numbers of Blackwater "contractors" on the ground in Iraq is staggering and they choose not to recognize the Geneva conventions.

It is never a good idea to have a shadow military operating inside your country that is loyal to it's share holders and not to the country. What happens in the future if Blackwater USA gets involved in a conflict in another country that is not in the best interest of the US. Will we ask them to stand down and if they refuse, will we take military action against them. Also will Blackwater cause or further conflicts in other countries in order to maximize profits. Will they cause more conflicts in Iraq in order to keep the war going. Will Blackwater cause conflicts inside the US. Could they one day stage a Coup. Blackwater is growing, how much stronger will they be in 10 years.

To believe that Balckwater has not carried out any mercenary operations is very naive thinking. We never get the whole true story from our government.

There should only be one Military inside the US, "The US military". The one that is loyal and willing to fight and die for this country.
