L.A. Town Hall meeting on Iraq/Blackwater this Sunday.
By now, you’ve probably heard of Blackwater, an organization that is hired by the government for special operations that, for whatever the reason, cannot be performed by the U.S. Military. You’ve also probably heard of “incidents” in Iraq involving innocent civilians. Now there’s this…
Blackwater wants to move to your backyard. They have plans to build a private military base near San Diego.
Think of the next major disaster that strikes Southern California. With most of our armed forces stretched out overseas, whom do you think the government is going to call in? Blackwater. Men with guns, but no uniform. Men with guns, but no badge. Men with guns, but no honor.
In Los Angeles, we call those gangs.
