4. Wish It Were Me...
Pedro looked like bambi in the headlights. The dude has a pile of newspapers on that desk and he couldn't find that story in any of them? Well maybe it hasn't made it into the Moonie Times yet.

The problem I see is people are confusing all these mercenary abuses...KBR into Blackwater into Triple Canopy and so on...and it's a part of this war for profit that is the most hidden. With poor war coverage, these dudes operate in total darkness and the only time we hear about the 100,000 plus mercenaries is after some horrific massacre or fuck-up. And, remember, these goons are "immunized" as long as their buddies boooshie and crashcart are in charge...they'll take the money and fade into the woodwork.

That's a big question no one has addressed to Senator Obama and should...what about the mercenaries? IMHO, they got themselves into these messes and made a ton of money, let them pay their ways out. I look forward to the day Erik Prince is marched off in an orange jump suit.
