Aggravating! Erik Prinze's Bush-worshipping monstrosity of a cronyist corporation is back out there slaughtering women and children for imperialist wet dreams for murderous conquest and oil.

""The Blackwater private soldiers do this frequently killing Iraqi civilians for sport. Blackwater was allowed to roam Baghdad's streets gleefully slaughtering Iraqi civilians who got in their way.""

Do you really, really believe this? Come now. Open your mouth and remove all doubt as they say? Here's some facts you don't mention about Blackwater..

In 2004, Iraqi insurgents in Fallujah attacked a convoy containing four American private military contractors from Blackwater who were conducting delivery for food caterers. The four armed contractors were attacked and killed and their bodies were hung from a bridge crossing the Euphrates.

In April 2004, a few days after the Fallujah bridge hanging, a small team of Blackwater employees, along with a fire team of U.S. Marines, held off over 400 insurgents outside the Coalition Provisional Authority headquarters in Al Najaf, Iraq, waiting for U.S. troops to arrive. The headquarters was surrounded and it was the last area in the city that remained in coalition control. During the siege, as supplies and ammunition ran low, a team of Blackwater contractors 70 miles away flew to the compound to resupply and bring an injured U.S. Marine back to safety outside of the city.

In April 2005 six Blackwater independent contractors were killed in Iraq when their Mi-8 helicopter was shot down.

Five Blackwater contractors were killed on January 23, 2007 in Iraq when their Hughes H-6 helicopter was shot down. A U.S. defense official has confirmed that four of the five killed were shot execution style in the back of the head, but did not know whether the four had survived the crash.

Hope those guys get combat pay, because they deserve it. Besides, I don't want my soldiers peeling potatoes and doing laundry, do you? KP duty was always frowned upon by soldiers throughout history.

Yes, after watching the numerous videos of Blackwater personnel in Iraq. These are readily available at YouTube.

Dave M.

Saw some videos, couldn't find anywhere where they did it "for sport" and did it "gleefully". Care to provide evidence for your claim?

John Morgan

If you do a search for Blackwater at YouTube there are quite a few videos of Blackwater men hurling racist epithets at Iraqis and behaving as if these people were subhuman and treated their whole mission as if it was a hunting expedition at home. Watch the videos of them going through the street pushing and forcing Iraqi vehicles out of their way and loving the experience. Of course every time they did that they were fueling the insurgency and motivating more locals to hate us. They didn't care because they didn't see the Iraqis as people.

Dave M.

So, when you are called on to provide proof of your claim of murder for "gleeful sport", you can't back up your claim. You can only say that you are providing videos of people saying racial epithets, and that's it! And even then, you can't even provide a link to back up your now greatly reduced exaggeration. Sad.

Surely you can provide me with better debate opposition than this. But, history shows I am undefeated in debating Bush bashing liberals. They think with emotion and propaganda, while I debate with facts.

John Morgan

The articles and videos are in my blog archives Dave. It isn't my responsibility to do your searches for you. I found them once and published them once. That's enough. Have you heard of something called Google?

John Morgan

Dave, where were you when I originally posted all these? They are already on this blog, what part of that don't you comprehend? Go watch them.
