48. actually, I don't believe the mercenaries keep the death count low
Yep, the CEO of XE is a "crusader" who I believe thinks the more muslins he offs the better. XE/Blackwater rarely has been held accountable for their actions. This company seems to not know what the Geneva Convention is and apparently has used illegal weapons in Iraq. Because of murdering innocent civilians, they cause more harm to our soldiers. We had a thread a while ago about Blackwater, about Blackwater being used as domestic security. As I stated before (and now it seems that it's proven), Blackwater can hire the thugs of the world. Thugs who operated under Pinochet's regime and other immoral, nasty regimes. Think about this company doing security in our country, against our citizens with hired thugs. I'd say that the company is very very dangerous, not only to countries like Iraq, but to our own. So far until now, there has been little to no accountability for this company.
