Iraq shootout firm loses licence
Iraq has cancelled the licence of the private security firm, Blackwater USA, after it was involved in a gunfight in which at least eight civilians died.

The Iraqi interior ministry said the contractor, based in North Carolina, was now banned from operating in Iraq.

The Blackwater workers, who were contracted by the US state department, apparently opened fire after coming under attack in Baghdad on Sunday.

Thousands of private security guards are employed in lawless Iraq.

They are often heavily armed, but critics say some are not properly trained and are not accountable except to their employers.

A while ago I posted this video. These guys are cowboys who shoot anything that moves.

...and some still wonder why the Iraqis want the US to leave.

Q ......here is the link. Watch the video.

If the Iraqis want us to leave, they should just ask. I think Iran is ready to step in for us.

The Blackwater boys have been over the top by everybody's accounting and should be thrown out.
