  •  Why? (none)
    Foreign Mercs are another matter. But blackwater hired the vast majority of its men from the pool of highly trained US veterans.

    Why are foreign mercs any different from mercs who are US citizens or have their military experience from the US armed forces?  Your post implies that simply out of virtue of being a US citizen I should grant a level of acceptance and immunity of responsibility for their choices that I grant no other person US citizen or no...

    That's the fallacious assumption that underlies your post/question.
