Shooting cars, hit and runs, and general assholeishness:

These guys give a bad name to operators everywhere.  I know it’s got to suck to be in iraq, or any other shitty country over there… but seriously if you can’t stand treating the general public with respect and saving your anger for actual enemies then quit your job right now.

Maybe past incidents such as that Fallujah bridge burning and hanging of 4 Blackwater employees in 2004 wouldn’t have happened if they didn’t treat their people like garbage all the time?   I’m saying “maybe”…

The way I look at it is you reap what you sow.

This aired a couple of years ago on Skyone in the UK.  It’s about private military companies in Afghanistan:

I haven’t watched it yet, but It looks promising.

Anyone that has seen it have any comments?
