Blackwater (part of the US mercenary army) loses its Iraq license

Read this article to learn about our glorious freelance soldiers in Iraq, killin' Iraqi civilians willy nilly. Or don't, if you don't want to feel your blood pressure rise.

Oh, and guess what? There are at least as many of these kinds of mercenaries in Iraq - whom you pay with your taxes - as US soldiers in Iraq. Lovely.

EDIT: Oh, and these paid killers? Guess where else they are stationed (and paid with your taxes to do their dirty work)? In New Orleans. No, seriously. Mercenaries fresh out of Iraq's killing streets hunting bad guys in one of our own cities. Thanks for the heads-up, gmskarka.
