    anyone denying that Blackwater operates mercenary forces and that their business practices are not something to be outraged about.

    And generally speaking, I do fine with my words. Sorry if you're in denial about your problems in that area.

      contractors, or just Blackwater's?  If independent contractors are not upset about the arrangement, why are you?  

      I'm trying to gauge the level of your ignorance.  Do you not believe that the DOS, who hired Blackwater, is an American entity?  How about DOD?  Is it outrageous that truck drivers in Iraq, independent contractors almost all, are being paid over 120k per year?  Is an American truck driver, under contract to, say, the Defense Logistics Agency, a mercenary if he drives on an Iraqi road?  

      Do you believe we should prosecute the democratic congress for hiring mercenaries?  For the killing of the 17 civilians?  If you commission a crime, certainly the law says the payer should be punished as well as the payee.  Are you in denial?  Did you vote for any of the people who are currently voting to pay Blackwater?  Should you be arrested as well?

      To avoid starting dumb wars, punish the dumb people who vote for them.
