The website "News Sophisticate" is reporting that Blackwater USA is interested in growing its business in Sudan.
Blackwater has long eyed doing business with the UN in the Sudan. They see the Iraq war winding down and are looking for more opportunities for expansion and the continuation of their 'soldier of fortune' corporate business plan. Chris Taylor, head of strategy for Blackwater, stated in 2006 that
"(his company) has a database of thousands of former police and military officers for security assignments...Blackwater personnel could set up perimeters and guard Darfurian villages and refugee camp in support of the U.N."
Apparently the United Nations has authorized a UN troop force of 20,000 soldiers and 6,000 police. News Sophisticate is guessing these 6,000 police are hired mercenaries from Blackwater.
Death and destruction as growth industries. I cannot fathom how these executives live with themselves. Some things are simply beyond me.
