If you want to read the biggest load of bulls*** then this is your book. He is as far left as you can be, and doesn't know anything about what Blackwater really is. It is sad to see someone hate their country and everything it stands for so much that he has to lie and ruin good people's lives, and their reputations. I would give this book a zero if i could, but I can't. My suggestion to this so called "author" is to try pulling your head out of your a** and learn how to research and write; because all you are giving us is a bunch of s***

The truth hurts

on 9/21/2007

In the face of easily verifiable facts, right-wing reviewers resort to attacking the messenger. Unable to defend the debacle in Iraq, they are left to produce a straw-man argument against the author in hopes of distracting from the facts. Fact: there are more paid mercenaries than troops fighting in Iraq. Fact: Blackwater and their ilk profiteering in Iraq are neither controlled by the Uniform Code of Military Justice nor are they held accountable to US laws so they have zero accountability for their actions in Iraq. Fact: any draw-down or end to the fighting in Iraq would put Blackwater out of business (or at least make a sizable dent in their billion-dollar no-bid contracts) -- that's the same Blackwater that contributes heavily to the GOP. Read the book or any of numerous press articles on the topic. Verify the facts. Make up your own mind instead of just mouthing a partisan attack on the messenger. The book is well written and interesting. It is tragic to see how seriously the idealism and honor that the United States of America was founded on have suffered. It DOES matter how the US is viewed across the world. We cannot simply devolve into a playground bully making up our own rules and insisting any nation that opposes us is evil. Only the most myopic and short-sighted would think otherwise.
