Loathsome Goons.

So, apparently Blackwater Security are going to have their staff taken to trial for killing Iraqi civilians. All well and good, you might think, people who kill folk should probably have that sort of thing happen to them, but this is fairly major news. It shows a couple of very pertinent things:
  • That the Iraqi Security Council has finally developed enough of a spine to stand up to the US Governement.

  • That the days of providing money for the GOP being rewarded with a blank chequebook might be drawing to a close.

  • Finally, that if this does end up embarassing the US as much as it should, they may start to regard these lunatic mercenaries as just that, rather than a prudent investment.
