American Samizdat

Of course this would change everything, if private security firms/contractors (aka mercenariness) were to be controlled the whole plan in Iraq would collapse. So, I am very sure this is only temporary. And if so, if these corps come home, they come home with their taste for blood money.

Also see, US security firm Blackwater banned from Iraq

Iraqi Brigadier-General, Abdul-Karim Khalaf, confirmed that a mortar had landed close to the convoy and said the US firm had 'opened fire randomly at citizens'.

Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki has strongly condemned the company's actions and denounced what he called the criminal response of the US contractors.

And today Iraqi Interior Minister Jawad al-Bolani issued an order to cancel Blackwater's licence and prohibit the company from operating anywhere in Iraq.

This Blackwater story is big. The US relies on its mercenaries. If their license remains revoked and they are kicked out, then this is the beginning of the end. It sets a precedent for all other mercenaries.

Of course this means, Maliki and al-Bolani will be gone or dead soon.
