This week two more deaths of civilians in Iraq by private security operations, this time Australian. Two Armenian Christian women had their car riddled with 40 bullets, yes 40 bullets. Soldiers in such a situation can face a court, but there appear to be no rules of engagement for these rogue companies who are out for profit from their dubious services. Blackwater we hear are to face war crime charges following their involvement in civilian deaths, while the family of those killed in the latest attack have threatened to turn over every stone to bring the perpetrators to book.
Blackwater appear to be involved in other wars, not least the so-called drugs war. Experts in syphoning off extraordinary sums of government (public) money documentation reveals the extent of their operations beyond those revealed by the deaths of civilians at the hands of their employees im Iraq.
