blackwater: christian supremacy and coups

i have always been greatful that we do not have coups in this country, but if president bush decided on the second of january, 2009 to declare martial law (much like our ally in pakistan) he could easily pull out blackwater and overpower our own military if they tried to rise up...a must see and a must read

World's Most Notorious Merc to Oversee Blackwater?
By Noah Shachtman October 31, 2007 | 1:59:11

The New York Times is reporting today that the Department of Defense is taking control of the State Department's convoys of security contractors, like Blackwater. The Pentagon already coordinates its outsourced security details through a single, Defense Department entity, the Reconstruction Operations Centers, which tracks movement of security convoys.......But here's the interesting twist: The Reconstruction Operations Centers are themselves outsourced, through a recently renewed $475 million contract to the British firm Aegis. And Aegis is run by the infamous old-school gun-for-hire, Tim Spicer. He's the guy, you may recall, who tried to use his mercenary army to launch a counter-coup for the government of Sierra Leone; his associate, Simon Mann plotted the overthrow of the authorities in Equatorial Guinea. Later, in Iraq, one of his ex-employees circulated online a rather nasty “trophy video,” in which contractors are seen shooting at civilians.....

it just gets scarier and scarier
