    This sucks. I like Blackwater and think they are given the crap end of the public opinion stick thanks to our super fair media, but if this is true, then they need to fix a few things

    I heard Blackwater doesn't like newborn babies.

    There was also discrimination in the use of funds. They also should have put male and female American homosexual prostitutes to cater to the fags in service.:rofl: Gender equality anyone?

    Honestly, this is the thing about Blackwater that I have the LEAST problem with. As long as the prostitute was a volunteer what difference does it make?

    Ho Hummmmmmmmm.....

    Blackwater did what they were hired to do at the price that was agreed upon.

    That's a sound business model if you ask me.

    Of course there are Iraqis that would like Blackwater banned from the country. These Iraquis are members of a group known collectively as "enemies".

    If they can't defeat the US (and Blackwater) in battle, maybe they can win the PR war. Especially with a little US media help.

    Why is prostitution illegal again? Seems like two individuals making a mutually-beneficial business transaction. :dunno:

    It was actually Blackwater, not the New Orleans Police, who did the actual gun confiscations in New Orleans during Katrina. They were deputized by the NOPD Chief. I had two friends working security in N.O. that saw this happen.

    What do you think of them now?

    Providing a basic human service in a war zone where it is otherwise unavailable. I don't have the problem with it the civilian married couple has, perhaps because they have absolutely no clue.

    I'm not suprised.
    There are 435 prostitutes in the House and another 100 in the Senate. Taxpayers pay their salary every week and gets alot less in return.
    +1 to Blackwater for building company morale.

    I happen to think Blackwater has the same field discipline and morale issues as the military they serve with, but lack the foundation of a clear chain of command and the UCMJ.

    This leaves them vulnerable to neglecting to consider the rule of law. Corporate loyalty becomes the overriding value and long term consequences aren't properly prioritized.

    They have no traditions nor history to buttress esprit de corps, and must find it elsewhere. While I admit the job Blackwater does needs doing, I'm very uncomfortable with the lack of government oversight, and the massive size of the contracts. I wonder if Blackwater isn't too big to be efficient? And, a magnet for those with more concern for a paycheck than patriotism. I think the issues of exceeding the job description are chronic, built into their business paradigm, and bound to come up again.

    I'd rather see them have auxilary military status, and be under the military chain of command, and held to the same standards, because we could then effectively control behaviors not in our strategic interest.

    Still no charges of widespread raping and pillaging.

    Our military has a long history of hiring prostitutes to boost morale. Although I am against the concept altogether I see no basis to punish or admonish Blackwater here.
