      That's who's been filibustering.

      ...originally referring to pirates of the Caribbean (WAY pre-Disney!), the term "filibuster", in American usage, was usually applied to armed, trained (usually ex-miltary) white American  freebooters who would deploy into Latin American countries in support of oppressive governments, or equally oppressive rebel movements. Often with support of the spread of slavery involved somewhere.

      Kind of like a 19-Century version of Blackwater: minus the corporate structure....
