06:14 pm - send in the mercenaries
Rather: "Private Security Contractors."

Oh, but you have to love the language - Blackwater USA describes themselves thusly: We are a turnkey solution provider for 4th generation warfare. Is it just me, or does that sound a little more detached than someone waving a gun around should preferably be.

I dunno. A passionate person waving a gun around doesn't sound much better to me. They might be passionately interested in shooting people.

What I'd really like is for the gun wavers to have equanimity, good judgment, a little flexibility, and a lot of common sense. I don't know about the equanimity, but that heavy jargon does not give me hope for the rest.

I like that their trade association is the International Peace Operations Association. Guess that goes over better than Mercenaries R Us.
