Brother Lurch is polite about it. I, on the other hand, am not. If you kill for money, you are a murderer and an assassin. If you're an American operator who's left the military and your mates to become a mercenary, only to come back to do the same job for 5 times the pay, you're a greedy murderer.

Five Blackwater employees died when the helicopters they were riding in were shot down, apparently by machine gun fire. The bodies were later recovered, some with bullet wounds to the head, which suggests execution. Little else is known at this moment.


I have no compassion, no sympathy, no use for mercenaries. And that includes any civilian whose only motivation to enter a war zone is for money. The only reason an American should be fighting for this nation is to defend her. Mercenaries have no honor and no soul. Whether you're executed after your helicopter is shot down or strung up from a bridge in Fallujah, you've earned your fate.
