    Yes, we will pry it from your cold, dead fingers.

    That's just falling into the trap that they waltzed into so willingly.  Violence is not the answer.

      making it happen is another.  And should Erik Prince respond by inviting someone to try, what then?  Do you think you have firepower to top his?

      Unfortunately, when it comes to creating cold, dead fingers, they are the experts.  I don't know what sort of force would be required to close them down if they refused to do so peacefully.  That is the danger of allowing private military to form in the first place, and the reason they must be dealt with.

        No money kills them as fast as anything.
        Currently the State Department (Hillary's new digs) handles these contracts.  Hillary could, if directed, put an end their primary source of income by February.

      •  The US government is the expert... (0+ / 0-)

        His men are mercenaries and are in it for the money.  Going against the resources of the entire US government would be a suicide mission.  No matter how much money he might throw at them, I don't think many would stick around knowing they were going to die for nothing.

        They just think that they are the experts.  Their hubris will be their downfall.
