good.
 
2008-12-08 11:21:48 AM
Good, they should not be paid better AND treated better then our own volunteer troops. Hope this somehow comes back on Bush/Cheeney.
 
2008-12-08 11:22:05 AM
good.

Jan 21st I want to see some new trials.
 
2008-12-08 11:24:52 AM
If they did nothing wrong, they should have no problem... Right?
 
2008-12-08 11:25:04 AM
The government has told Blackwater that the company will not face charges, according to sources with knowledge of the case.


Not so good.
 
2008-12-08 11:25:35 AM
Can't they contract the justice system for cases like this out to KBR?

empty gesture

I can only hope that half of the hell we've rained down on innocent Iraqis comes back to haunt those responsible it.
 
2008-12-08 11:27:47 AM
Everyone who thought the war was a super duper idea back in 2003 should be put on trial right next to them.

Thorndyke Barnhard: The government has told Blackwater that the company will not face charges, according to sources with knowledge of the case.

We're getting a new government. Hopefully one that pays attention to things like laws and such.
 
2008-12-08 11:28:01 AM
Can't pardon them if they haven't been convicted. They're running out of time!

As much shiat as they caused, didn't Blackwater have a flawless or near flawless escort record? Always got their cargo, be it people or stuff, where it needed to go, didn't they?

Could have sworn I read that in some article a year back.
 
2008-12-08 11:29:10 AM
Theres some things that will never change...
 
2008-12-08 11:29:12 AM
Can't imagine anyone is really that surprised at what happened.

Mercs + Warzone + No accountability = Total Farking Mess

The law that they are being prosecuted under covers DoD employees, not state dept ones.

The US govt doesn;t have a right to try them.

War. War never changes.

you can't really be that dense and lacking in common sense assumption making skills

or can you?

Yes... anyone that even suppored the idea of the war should be on trial.

OR..
you're just being your typical dickweed moronic self.

Schadenfreude ist die schoenste Freude: As much shiat as they caused, didn't Blackwater have a flawless or near flawless escort record? Always got their cargo, be it people or stuff, where it needed to go, didn't they?

If you calculate how flawless someone's record is by ignoring how many innocent people they killed for shiats and giggles along the way...

...you're doing it wrong.

Which hunt?

Was that wrong? Should they not have done that?

stlbluez: Yes... anyone that even suppored the idea of the war should be on trial.

Too big of a pussy to fight and too big of one to even carry the burden of the actions of those we send to fight so put them on trial right?

that's a new level of chicken hawk.

FTFA: "We are confident that any jury will see this for what it is -- a politically motivated prosecution to appease the Iraqi government," attorney Steve McCool said.

Um...I think it may actually have something to do with all those people that got shot.

The fact that the entire situation can apparently barely be investigated because nobody has jurisdiction is why you shouldn't do idiotic stuff like turning mercenaries loose lose in a war zone with no oversight.
 
2008-12-08 11:42:07 AM
So when do Bush and all his pals get their trials?

I'm not calculating anything. It was an article stating they had a flawless or near flawless mission success rate.

So argue with the article if you want.

Well you have to start the ball rolling somewhere.

Oh good, then maybe they'll get off scot-free without ever having to answer why both the military investigation and the FBI determined that they killed 17 civilians and wounded 30 in an unprovoked attack. I mean, they're our mercenaries and we should be in favor of them being able to do whatever they want with impunity.

No, this is some limp-wristed liberal trying to make a politically-motivated prosecution against contractors hired by the farking government to do the job they did. If I sat on that jury I'd vote innocent even if the other 11 jurors were dead-set on their guilt. Fark that. The day we send government contractors to jail for doing what they were hired to do over politics is the day we cease being a democracy and just a bunch of partisan politicos. Fark you libs and your "impeach Bush" horseshiat. Fark you with a farking spoon.
 
2008-12-08 11:46:04 AM
While there obviously needs to be more oversight or something on this, if they let the Iraqis have them, count on losing a lot of their contractors.
 
2008-12-08 11:47:16 AM
Schadenfreude ist die schoenste Freude: It was an article stating they had a flawless or near flawless mission success rate.

Given that Blackwater is a private entity and they can pick and choose the jobs they want to do, it's not surprising they'd have a good record of success. They just leave the dirty and dangerous jobs to those who can't say no.
 
2008-12-08 11:47:58 AM
They better hurry up. They only have until January 20th to find them not guilty on all charges.

Oh no you didn't
I'm a mercenary
You ain't got a prayer, you owe MEEEEEE
