  •  No, they're not covered by that (none)
    First -- they're not Americans

    Second -- they're mercenaries. Those people are covered by NO, ZERO, NONE laws over there.

    Scary at all yet?

    And the thing which just infuriates me. Our soldiers are being paid jack. These people are making $70K, $90K, $120K or more over there. And our Pentagon, our tax dollars are paying them.

    Well, what am I saying. Our loans from China and the rest of the world are paying them.

    While Americans at home sacrifice nothing for a war effort.

    That thing about the huge salaries for mercenaries, puny salaries and bennies for our troops is just immoral.

    In troubling times, it's good to read true stories about real people doing good things. HeroicStories, free
