Comments to eBook Blackwater the Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army
Gir
The Book is very insightful, awesome journalistic work and an eye opener of corruption in Washington and military spending...
Nagor
This is a book that sheds light on the collapse of our nation's checks and balances and what it means that private mercenary armies now exist (at the behest of the rich and/or people in power) that are not answerable to any sovereign government OR legal authority, for the most part. Jeremy Scahill is one of very few journalists with the guts to tell the truth about very painful matters, matters that 99% of the time remain under the radar (public scrutiny wise). Such a work is not for the faint-hearted and since it's not fiction, the idea of plot twists or asking if the work is full of surprises is ludicrous!
Gozragore
This was a wonderful book. An overwhelming amount of relevant detail, which results in a connection of the dots. The author does a great job in showing the mix of money, politics, and ideology; and how this has affected the United States military.
Yellow Judge
A very well researched and documented book that chronicles the rise evolving into permanence of the best soldiers money can buy. For such detailed material it is an easy read. However, the passages of what was going on with the Bush administration during the applicable period of time will break your heart. Yes, it was as bad as you suspected.

This book was recommended to me by someone that wanted me to learn about Blackwater and what it stands for in our world. I have read this with an open mind. I do think it is necessary to have Private Army during this outrage in the middle east. Without these men the enemy would take over and be here. I do not know all the political jargon in this book. I do not follow much about politics. Now I play to be more informed as to what is going on with our world. The book is well written but it is only one sided. I am going to look for another one from the point of view from one of the men that are actually working for Blackwater. I liked the book even though it is 500 pages I read it in two days. I applaud these men for keeping the enemy under control. Job well done. I don't know if many other women will read this but I did like the book. Maybe some women will want to know about this also.
Marirne
Fascinating book about Blackwater.
Maximilianishe
The authors waits until the end of the book to come to the realization that contractors were necessary because of the short sightness of the federal government. Look at what happened at Benghazi when there weren't contractors to protect the diplomatic mission.
Research Scahill, read this book, and make up your own mind. Either way, we're in trouble as a Nation.
