Security Company Death Squads Timeline

Italian Squadristi
There is an uncanny resemblance between the the WW2 Italian Squadristi [1], Blackwater and the thousands of other “security” forces.
By Dirk Adriaensens and Sarah Meyer

SECURITY, OED. "The condition of being protected from or not exposed to danger; freedom from doubt; Now, chiefly, well-founded confidence, certainty; freedom from care, anxiety or apprehension."
There is no such thing as "security". "Security" companies were formed to make money on our anxieties, just as pharmaceutical companies financially thrive on anxiety about health and have a vested interest in illness.
Dirk Adriaensens has been involved with Iraq for 17 years. He is on the executive committee of the BRussels Tribunal and is the coordinator of SOS Iraq.
He writes:"Security guys and gals don't have to abide by the Geneva Conventions. They do as they wish. No rules, no regulations. They can operate with impunity.
As such these "security companies" can be called "death squads". Not "Angels of Death" but "Devils of Death". For this, they make a lot of money. Privatization of war is big, big business."
The documentation by The BRussells Tribunal in The Salvador Option Exposed asks "Who is Blowing up Iraq?"
There is a full list of articles concerning death squads published on The BRussells Tribunal website.We have to ask what is the motive for violent occupation, for violence in one's own country as well as in another's country. Security Company Death Squads Timeline is a follow - up to Sarah Meyer's original article, Iraq Security Companies and Training Camps (17.05.06).
This first research contained the history with lists of security companies.
The present article is resource material which has been collected since May 2006.
Please see BRussells Tribunal website to read complete article:

gambadilegno a dit…

you may be right about securuty companies in iraq etc, but the comparison with italian squadristi is completely out of place. squadristi were italians active in italy, most of them ex-combatants in the first world war as arditi, like it or not, agree with them or not, they were italians fighting for their cause in italy, not for money. many of them were decorated ex-arditi on the austrian front. any comparison with security companies in iraq is preposterous.
