Post subject:  Tension Grows Between US Soldiers and Mercenaries

There are now nearly as many private contractors in Iraq as there are U.S. soldiers - and a large percentage of them are private security guards equipped with automatic weapons, body armor, helicopters and bullet-proof trucks.

They operate with little or no supervision, accountable only to the firms employing them. And as the country has plummeted toward anarchy and civil war, this private army has been accused of indiscriminately firing at American and Iraqi troops, and of shooting to death an unknown number of Iraqi citizens who got too close to their heavily armed convoys.

Not one has faced charges or prosecution.

Good article. Points out the damage these people are doing in Bush's war. Links at the bottom of the article for more information.

Well that is what Fallujah was all about. The revenge for killing four blackwater killers for hire. They get 100,000 dollars a year and GI Joe makes shit. No wonder there is animosity. Long Live Cheney. This is one fucked up war. FUBAR ... US215&aq=t


In November 2004 the United States carried out a relentless attack on Fallujah, a city 70 km to the west of Baghdad, and a stronghold of the web fallujah.jpgSunni resistance to the occupation. At the time of the attack, there were between 50,000 and 100,000 people in the city. The US estimated that this included between 1,000 and 6,000 insurgents. At the end of January 2005, reports of the use of white phosphorus in the attack on Fallujah began to take on serious proportions. The US only admitted to the use of white phosphorus after the release of a shocking documentary on this subject by the Italian broadcaster RAI. Reports from US soldiers make it clear that these weapons were used directly against people. To say that the impact on the civilian population was terrible, is an understatement. Jeff Englehart, a US soldier who served in Fallujah reports how he heard the order for the use of white phosphorus on the military radio. He describes the consequences as follows: "Burned. Burned bodies. I mean, it burned children, and it burned women. White phosphorus kills indiscriminately… And when it makes contact with skin, then it's absolutely irreversible damage, burning of flesh to the bone."

There's this one theory about what happened to that "lost" shit-load cash of weapons -- they somehow made their way to the contractors.
