    Blackwater out of Iraq - opinions?

    So I wonder if any of you guys with experience in the security business has anything to say about the reasons behind this move/attempt by the Iraqi government:

    All the more reason why I'm considering reintegrating Sociocide.

    Actually, this thread should be fine in here since we'd love to have a few BW guys posting.

    I think the ban is pretty hollow

    I mean couldn't blackwater take the current government of Iraq out of office just as quick as they put them in?

    Only if they want U.S. soldiers shooting at them, plus their CEO being arrested and sent to Gitmo. The current government sucks anyway. The new US strategy I hear is to focus on each province. Apparently the Iraqis don't even want a unified government at this point.

    The US army and Blackwater have the same "CEO" no matter what the paperwork says. What I was saying is that's the reason it's really up to the US military if they're kicked out of Iraq - or if they leave, shuffle papers, and come back as "Darkfluid" or something.

    At least it wouldn't be Whitewater. That's Clinton's project.
