Die Mercenary Die

Why are we using Apartheid death squad killers in the Iraqi Occupation?

Because I have zero tears that this security contractor was killed last week:

Gray Branfield, 55, admitted to being part of a death squad which gunned down Joe Gqabi, the ANC's chief representative and Umkhonto weSizwe operational head in Zimbabwe on July 31 1981...In South Africa he joined the SA Defence Force's secret Project Barnacle, a precursor to the notorious Civil Co-operation Bureau (CCB) death squad...

In 1985 he was involved in planning the now notorious SADF raid on Gaborone in which 14 people, including a five-year-old child, were killed.

Let's see, we laid off all the old Iraqi police in order to replace them with Apartheid hit squad members. This is our idea of improving the moral character of those protecting security in Iraq?

This is our tax dollars, folks. Paying big bucks to scum of the earth willing to kill for money.
