Blackwater is a private security force founded in 1998 in the U.S. Blackwater security forces are stationed in most troubled parts of the world, guarding American diplomats and high profile American civilians, and performing other security functions. Presently Blackwater is on contract for an assignment in Iraq at the behest of the U.S. State Department.

Blackwater has become a terrorist force in Iraq and a nuisance for the local people. From the view point of Iraqi civilians, Blackwater's terror tactics are neck & neck with those of the Al-Qaeda insurgents and thugs within Iraq.

Blackwater's aggressive strategy, numerous pre-emptive bursts of gunfire and slamming into the cars of Iraqi civilians have left countless innocent Iraqi dead or seriously wounded.

One would wonder if it's necessary for Blackwater to be in Iraq. Is the U.S. Army so reliant on them? Well, it's the State Department and not the U.S. Army that relies heavily on Blackwater for protecting Americans in that country.

Not a single person of this force has yet been charged with any criminal offence. The State Department has granted Blackwater immunity from Iraqi law. Whenever Blackwater shoots at the Iraqi people, it falsely claims self-defence.

The White House has since long maintained that its goal is to introduce and promote the rule of law in Iraq for which Blackwater is setting a real bad example. The double standards of the American 'rule of law' has never been better exposed. Can anyone imagine a group of 900 private security men going on a shooting rampage in some U.S. town or city and being given immunity from law for such killings?

Also exposing a very repugnant characteristic of Blackwater's professional approach .. it's similar to the Chetniks of Serbia. The Chetniks are an indigenous race in Serbia that are considered the most uncivilized in Europe, and one of the most savage ones in the world. The Serbian army had recruited plenty of Chetniks during the Balkan war in Bosnia and Kosovo in the 1990s. The most important battlefield strategy of the Chetniks is to get drunk before setting out to fight, raid or attack. Their drunken state helps them to carry out the mayhem in the most ruthless manner with no reservations. Blackwater follows the same method to acquire 'professional efficiency.'

The shooting and killing of 8 innocent Iraqi civilians in mid September 2007 resulted in an unprecedented outrage among the Iraqi people all over the country. The Iraqi PM, Nuri Al-Malki, called it an act of crime, insisting that Blackwater must leave Iraq. But the U.S. State Department intervened. Thus, Blackwater remains in Iraq and continues its killings of Iraqi civilians. Again, after the incident of mid September, not a single Blackwater personnel was charged.

As far as the U.S. State Department is concerned, Blackwater is doing a 'fine job' protecting Americans in Iraq. In the process if it kills scores of Iraqi civilians every month is not a matter of concern for the U.S. government.

The Sept.16 shooting event investigation has now been taken over by the FBI from the State Deptt.  Let's hope that makes a difference though no great reason to be optimistic.

What might make a difference or I hope it does, is that some new rules are said to be in the pipeline for private security guards operating in Iraq.  Every such convoy is to be accompanied by a group of US agents and their vehicles will be equipped with video cameras.

Ok, then let's hope those agents and the private security guards don't start shaking hands with each other.  Also keep hoping that the security cameras aren't blown up after every suspicius operation.
