military contractor

Affected or possibly affected by Trump’s Muslim ban, which is resulting in people literally being detained in airport terminals.

Hameed Khalid Darweesh - who worked as a translator for the US military in Iraq for ten years - detained at JFK and then released.

Haider Sameer Abdulkhaleq Alshawi - husband of a woman who worked for the US as a military contractor and now lives in Texas - still in detention at JFK and being denied access to his lawyer.

The father of Mohammed Al Rawi, Chief Information Officer of Los Angeles County - removed from a flight in Qatar and sent back to Iraq.

Asgar Farhadi - director of The Salesman, nominated for an Oscar for best foreign language film - denied a visa.

So, right.

One of our own military translators is a threat.

The husband of somebody who has worked for the government is a threat.

The 71-year-old father of a local government official just trying to visit his son.

An Oscar-nominated director.

And they represent the people who’s names we don’t know who are being forcibly removed from planes, detained in airports without legal counsel, sent back to war zones.

I don’t know how many children are involved. I do know that none of these people are a threat to us.

Really.

And Donald signed the executive order causing this on Holocaust Remembrance Day.

We all know where this could go.

Make it public. Make it clear. Tell the stories of those who are affected.

Last time, the Reich pushed the camps into the back of everyone’s awareness, put them outside German borders (Donald is trying to reopen Guantanamo), and many German citizens did not know what was going on.

This time? This time they can’t hide it. They can’t push it under the rug.

Donald has specifically stated that when they start letting in refugees again, “religious minorities” will be prioritized.

He means Christians.

(Note, I’m not in favor of denying an escape to persecuted religious minorities, but you see where this is going).

Meanwhile, don’t let anyone ignore this.

Some of my followers are a bit too young to remember about this.
It was on the 4th of April 2004 in Najaf, Iraq.
A few US servicemen (Marines mostly) and a group of private military contractors were stuck on a rooftop. They held their position for hours against hundred of Shia insurgent of the Mahdi Army.
Among the PMC guys (from Blackwater, boohoo the evil, etc) was Travis Haley, better known for having been the CEO of Magpul, and Ben Thomas (who was, by his own admittance, “a Navy SEAL for five minutes”, quiet a controversial character).
Despite all the political/ethical questions around the persons involved, I think this is an interesting part of the war in Iraq.

Oh, I should add: with them, there were a few soldiers from El Salvador who were really hardcore people. And one Spanish soldier who didn’t run away like the rest of his team.

Headcanon: A lot of people like to talk about Vishkar as a threat, but what about Pharah’s employers - Helix Security International? Don’t forget, they’re a Private Military Contractor, which is basically a politically correct way of calling them mercenaries. Mercenaries who might get hired by the government to, say, track down Overwatch agents violating the PETRAS act? Pharah may be forced to hunt down and arrest all of her old heroes, possibly even her own mother.

The Return of the Mercenary

“The use of mercenaries in warfare has a very long history—much longer, in fact, than the almost-exclusive deployment of national militaries to wage wars. Before the Peace of Westphalia in 1648 ended Europe’s Thirty Years’ War and marked the rise of the modern state system, medieval powers from kings to popes routinely hired private fighters to do battle for them. As state governments sought a monopoly on the use of force within their territories in the 17th century, however, they moved to stamp out violence by non-state actors, including mercenaries, driving the industry underground.

America’s reliance on private military companies in Iraq and Afghanistan over the past decade hasn’t just expanded the industry; it’s also started to change the conduct of international relations.”

The Bellwether Conspiracy

The above pictured, I can now tell are in fact police, Bellwether had sleeper possibly mole agents in the police force. Right under Bogo’s nose.


This sheep is NOT a police officer, but seemingly either a mercenary or private security or military contractor. Pictured here on his shirt is the sheep “death head“ logo from the art book. It’s clearly a crest of sorts with a Sheep Skull and a crown. Now the meaning of this logo can be debated. But I can say this, The Bellwether conspiracy is NOT over, and I would say the next place to start would be the Cloven Hoof Bar.

At the very least this proves that bellwether HAS other conspirators, and not just Doug, Woolter and Jesse.


@fanblubbering I knew it! I knew it when I saw it, I knew it, vindication is mine.

nyarlathotep's not an elder god, elder gods are assholes and nyarlathotep's a fine piece of alright. he's an outer god. the more formless and closer to azathoth's court, while elder gods are like derleth's superpowered jesus christ ocs who supposedly keep humanity safe from the unholy sphere of a bunch of gods who've wandered around on earth without incident for thousands of years prior. elder gods are like military contractors.
