4:16 am
more outlandish statements and the fear is that if somebody flinches if somebody screws up there could be hundreds of thousands of dead people here this is a very real fight this is shockingly dangerous and the last thing we need to do is stand down it started bumping chests and talk about who's the bigger man with the president's rhetoric i think it's it's two two leaders exchanging bombastic terms it would be a disaster a total disaster an arms race right on the peninsula even china does not want that that's why we need to tone down this rhetoric corral and these folks and and try to get them to talk reasonably rather than being bombastic all the time and creating tensions this is aussie international thanks for joining us and notorious us security for colds to privatized the afghan war details off the break.

thanks for joining us for the weekly here and i see some say that war is a racket well the founder of the notorious private security firm blackwater has now suggested the u.s. should privatized its war effort in afghanistan erik prince believes the move would save lives and taxpayers' money they would be contracting people professionals former special special operations veterans that have experience in that theater to go do that work would be profiting from the war. well we're not there now but any vendor again that solves that solution that's that's capitalism that's that's what it's about over
4:19 am
a ten year period blackwater made around two billion dollars out of the u.s. government and most of that came off for a security contract but following the two thousand and three invasion of iraq. certainly gained notoriety over the conduct of its armed forces the company was rebranded and sold off to four of its employees carried out a massacre in baghdad in two thousand and seven here's a quick reminder of what happened back then. no wonder the characters are there are . they were dead bodies everywhere in the city. among the dead. lift.

american found that most of the civilian deaths were unjustified it took nearly eight years old legal wrangling for justice to be served all the guards to open fire that day four were found guilty and sentenced to lengthy prison terms but now an american federal appeals court has overturned the first degree murder conviction of one of the guards and recommended three others for resentencing citing the punishments as cruel and unusual we tracked down some of the people who were in baghdad on the day of the killings whose lives were changed forever. i was working for the post office magadan on the sixteenth of september two thousand and seven i was delivering post to a police department in central baghdad and i saw blackwater contractors open fire randomly on civilians i was wounded as a result of the shooting and my hand this wound is the result of the actions of blackwater contractors it still hurts and i still haven't fully recovered.
