For me, though, as someone who had served in the Peace Corps, I always felt like the crazy thing would be to *not* do that kind of thing. How can you begin to hope to kill insurgents without having, in effect, lots of local drinking buddies who have some kind of working relationship with you on some level? For the most part nobody will really help you unless you spend a lot of time in advance forming your little relationships with the right people.

The worst part is that because the wives of the men who died sued, the back-pay for those dead dudes is now forfeit to the company and they are now being counter-sued for breach of contract (you aren't allowed to sue, lol!). Not only is Blackwater evil to people unfortunate enough to live where they work, but they're fucking satanic to their workers.
And in all fairness, these SEALs did breach the Geneva convention by beating up Objective Amber after he had been captured. (If it wasn't that they've got valuable info to torture out of him, they would have simply shot him I bet! Damn shame they need him alive.) I probably would have beat up the guy if I was in their position too. But, it is a warcrime.Lord Krishna said: I am terrible time the destroyer of all beings in all worlds, engaged to destroy all beings in this world; Of those heroic soldiers presently situated in the opposing army, even without you none will be spared.

As was already said, U.S. Military (especially SEALS) are trained to make terrorists dead...they were humane and only gave that piece of **** a fat lip. They should be in the running for the Nobel Peace Prize.

So, you piqued my curiosity; how did you end up getting shot at for no good reason?

Off topic. How is the SOF Tier system set up for the US?
Rangers are Tier 2. Delta Force Tier 1. Are SEALS 1 or 2?
I should read up about the Tier system. Do they have Tier 3?You are not free whose liberty is won by the rigour of other, more righteous souls. Your are merely protected. Your freedom is parasitic, you suck the honourable man dry and offer nothing in return. You who have enjoyed freedom, who have done nothing to earn it
