My stanceEdit

I abhor how Blackwater is given no-bid contracts. It is tax dollars wasted. The Blackwater employees get payed much more than government personnel, and don't follow the laws and rules that government personnel have to follow. War should not be privatized, and there is nothing good about using mercenaries.

I wonder what will happen now? Will Uncle Sam just use a different paramilitary organization? Or will they get actual U.S. gov employees to protect staff? Contralya 04:10, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
