according to the WaPo reconstruction in Afghanistan is coming to a halt. American reconstruction firms are threatening to pack up their bags and call it quits.
they changed their name to XE. They've avoided prosecution from the begining. They're an invention of the Bush era and it's time to bring it all to a halt.
No one can tell me, with unemployement at home where it is, that the military is short of men. Yet they seem to insist that the soldiers can no longer guard the high ranking or the civilian profiteers. We need to hire qualified people for that.
The WaPo article sounds more like a threat than news. Everything we've struggled so hard for is about to go down the tubes if Karzai doesn't change his mind. They seem to be trying to rile the teabaggers into hitting the streets for Blackwater. I can't see that happening and it sounds as though Karzai won't change his mind. I hate to win a war this way but it seems as though this was our last option.
Take away the profit.
December 17th is the 37th anniversary of my father's death. It is also the deadline for mercenary groups to get the hell out of Afghanistan. Yet another reason to celebrate, and have a merry little cristmas.
