My thanks to thedweeze for pointing out the Prag circle jerk over at Caleb's GunNuts site. The timing on this is strange because we haven't been talking about BW/Xe for some time here on Sipsey Street. So what prompted Caleb, Snowflake and the gang to attack Threepers for our traditional suspicion of mercenaries? Somebody in North Carolina must have told them if they want more free range time, they'll have to fondle mercenary private parts in public. And THAT is right up Prag alley.
Here's the opening chatter. You may go to the site for the full treatment.

Why do Threepers hate Blackwater/Xe? I don’t get it. When Bush was Pres, the 9/11 Truthers said that he (Bush) would hire Blackwater to put them in FEMA concentration camps. Now the Threepers/Wookie-Suiters think that Obama is going to hire Blackwater/Xe to take their guns and put them in FEMA concentration camps.
I just don’t get it.
This is my reply.

Mercenaries are mercenaries. And for every gun for hire who might, just might, remember his oath and quit instead of follow illegal orders, there are two or three foreign employees of Xe who don’t give a shit, never took an oath and just want a paycheck. Mercenaries have historically been used by governments to carry out missions they couldn’t get their own troops to do. Mercs will always follow the money. Period. History demonstrates nothing else, with few exceptions. Why don’t you just channel a Founder, and ask him what he thinks of mercs? Only you’ll have to use the term Hessians. Sheesh, what a bunch of historical amnesiacs. I guess its easy to be bought with a little free range time. What whores.
Riddle me this: why is Xe carrying out domestic surveillance right now? Who do you think they’re selling that to? Get a clue.
