Vladimir Putin Sending Russia’s Largest Warship to Syria to Destroy ISIS! He Says The US Created And Is Funding ISIS

Putin Tells Everyone Exactly Who Created ISIS:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ISIS = substitute for XE-Blackwater, Dyn Corp, Academi,etc. – IMHO
The Art of War is to accomplish maximum effect with minimum (financial) investment.
Those, who hate humanity, succeeded for the time being, but will get into trouble when they’ll meet the wrath of our Creator…. and that won’t be YAHWEH/ the Demiurge

By Suzanne Kelly / CNN — “There are a lot of assumptions about contractors, and a lot of the assumptions are wrong.” Those are the words of a private security contractor who asked to be referred to only as “Lloyd” for this story, because like most of his colleagues he is not authorized to speak to the media.

By Lloyd’s count, he has spent some 1,000 days working in Afghanistan in the past four years. He, like many other well-trained military men, decided to leave his position as a Navy SEAL and take his chances finding employment in one of the hot spots around the world where highly skilled contractors were well-paid, and in demand.

Receiving scant attention from Western mainstream media outlets except for a few notable exceptions, Americans and many alternative media outlets have remained ignorant to the fact that private mercenaries from Academi formally Blackwater appear to have been contracted by the GCC Gulf state feudal monarchies to assist in the military war of terror in Yemen against the Houthi rebels and the embattled Yemeni people.

Behind the president’s directive to ‘accelerate’ the counter-ISIS campaign came a surge in the number of contractors assisting in the campaign against ISIS.

The number of private contractors working for the U.S. Defense Department in Iraq grew eight-fold over the past year, a rate that far outpaces the growing number of American troops training and advising Iraqi soldiers battling Islamic State militants.

American citizens work all over the world in all sorts of industries. The most lucrative places to work are in the world’s hot spots. Civilian contractors are the brave people who find themselves working an ordinary jobs overseas and sometimes in war zones. You may wonder why people find jobs as civilian contractors. The answer is the adventure, but the pay is good, tax free and they make anywhere from $50,000 to $250,000+ per year.

Civilian contractors work in every imaginable field – health care, security, engineering, education, construction, transportation, interpreters, advising, truck drivers, food prep, telecommunications, accounting, mine removal, or military. Courageous civilians fill these roles to help manage and improve conflict and post conflict areas.

BY: RUTA NIMKAR, Private military and security companies (PMSCs) have earned a place in the spotlight recently due primarily to charges of human rights abuses in Iraq. However, the industry has been growing rapidly for over two decades, and has had significant impact on conflicts in Sierra Leone, Bosnia, and Papua New Guinea, among others. This article examines the difference between modern military companies and mercenaries. It then outlines the factors that gave rise to the PMSC industry and analyzes the threats and opportunities associated with PMSC presence. Four case studies are presented and factors associated with positive PMSC intervention are identified. The current state of policy regarding private militaries is reviewed, and the paper closes with suggestions on future policy directions.

Iraq

Private military contractors in Iraq skyrocketed in number by eight times over the period of January 2015 to January 2016, according to a new Pentagon report to Congress. There were just 250 contractors in Iraq in January 2015, a number that has surged to 2,028. Exactly 70 percent are American nationals, 20 percent are from other countries and 10 percent are local Iraqis.

Midway through 2015, the Pentagon put out numerous offers to quickly pull in more contractors. One of the offers came from the Army in March 2015 and called for advisors to assist the Iraqi Ministry of Defense with “designing, implementing, and sustaining systems that increase its institutional capabilities.”

During the Iraq war, private defense contractors providing security and support outnumbered troops on the ground at points. Contractors can enhance US military capacity but also entail risks. US experience with private security contractors holds several key lessons.

Over ten years after the war began, the Iraq war might best be remembered as America’s most privatized military engagement to date, with contractors hired by the Pentagon actually outnumbering troops on the ground at various points.

Although stability operations and contingency contracting may not be the biggest industry in the world, “You’d have a hard time finding another industry that has a greater impact in places that matter.” This observation, offered by a former commander of U.S. Africa Command at a 2015 security sector industry conference, marks the realization that the success of U.S. foreign policy in complex and high-threat environments over the last two decades has, in many instances, been dependent upon private contractors for a number of critical and highly specialized services.

The work of private military and security contractors is extremely controversial from the point of view of international law and of practice. Sometimes there are doubts as to whether some of their activities should be considered legal activities or illegal mercenarism. Like any other entities using force, they can violate human rights as well as international humanitarian law. They provide their services to, among others, states and intergovernmental organisations, including the UN.

Outside the United States, the Pentagon controls a collection of military bases unprecedented in history. With US troops gone from Iraq and the withdrawal from Afghanistan underway, it’s easy to forget that we probably still have about 1,000 military bases in other peoples’ lands. This giant collection of bases receives remarkably little media attention, costs a fortune, and even when cost cutting is the subject du jour, it still seems to get a free ride.

The rise of terrorism has led to increased business opportunities for both local and international companies, an investigation by Nation Newsplex shows. In addition to small businesses that provide services for individual and businesses, multinational companies have set up in the country, eyeing security contracts for large-scale infrastructure, including ports and oil and gas operations.

Rob Andrew, a former colonel in the British Army, is the managing director of Olive Group East Africa, which provides security for oil and gas operations. When the Westgate Mall attack happened in 2013, the company, then known as Newport Africa, had to respond on what should have been a tranquil Saturday morning.

Over the last eleven months, Sunni-jihadi extremists known as the the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria or Islamic State and the Levant (ISIS/ISIL) have been directly involved in multiple crises resulting in the deaths and displacement of civilians in Syria, and more recently, in Paris.

For ISIL, the battlefield is not constrained to one country but is the world, visible from the bomb placed on the Russian plane and the Paris attacks (i.e. Charlie Hebdo). Their use of unconventional warfare strategies and association to unconventional resource avenues makes their pacification extremely difficult and time consuming for international intelligence and security agencies.

Humanitarians and Private Security Companies: Time for Dialogue

By Jean S. Renouf — WELL AHEAD OF his time, Jean Marguin wrote, as early as 2000, “It is not out of the question to believe that the armed defence of most countries in the world, the missions of collective security entrusted to international organizations and the protection of NGOs’ humanitarian operations will one day be provided by private military – humanitarian multinationals”. We are not quite there yet, but we aren’t far off. While Blackwater recently proposed sending brigade-sized rapid reaction forces to support or replace peacekeepers in war zones, Pacific Architects and Engineers and Medical Support Solutions in fact did provide logistical support as well as medical services for the African Union in Sudan in 2002-2003.

by  — The unsubstantiated rumours of the private security company STTEP (Specialised Tasks, Training, Equipment and Protection International) being redeployed to Nigeria have yet to generate the furore that their initial deployment did in 2015. The earlier presence of STTEP prompted the South African government to label them as ‘mercenary’ in function and nature and therefore in contravention of existing domestic and international legal mechanisms. Other commentators took a broader view and characterised their arrival in northern Nigeria as a “logical step” (and as an act of desperation) following the poor performance of the Nigerian Defence Force (NDF) in their operations against Boko Haram.

The American military and Executive Branch have transitioned the way that the US engages in war strategy to rely more and more on private military contractors. This paper sought to examine the consequences that this dependence will cause. It was found that two main issues arise with the use of private military contractors and private security contractors. First their use lessons the political accountability that is necessary in preventing or ending war through the reduction of audience costs.

Second the indiscriminate brutality that private security contractors are infamous for leads to the radicalization of the population and the potential for violent mobilization against the offender. Those issues compound to one conclusion: the use of private military contractors will lead to an increase in the number of conflicts entered into and the duration of those conflicts.

mer·ce·nary noun \mr-s-ner-ē, -ne-rē\ a soldier who is paid by a foreign country to fight in its army : a soldier who will fight for any group or country that hires him (Merriam-Webster)

Say that you work for a private security company (PSC) and most people think one of two things: Either you are a mall cop. Or you work for Blackwater, the infamous private security firm, and you go around shooting people. Blackwater rose to notoriety in 2007 for the Nisour Square incident in which 17 Iraqi civilians were killed and 20 were injured when Blackwater personnel, under contract for the U.S. State Department, opened fire while clearing a route for U.S. officials.

LOADOUT ROOM — The draw down and the cutbacks of the military have actually increased the need for armed security in both Iraq and Afghanistan.

Remember, there are a number of non-military projects that are being done in country and have no military value, such as construction of civilian-use airfields, roads, power and water treatment, just to name a few. These projects are still in a very volatile environment and the threat of violence against the workers and locals, in addition to sabotage to equipment, is an ever-present danger.

Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario reported the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is a major threat to the Philippines through the Black Flag Movement in Mindanao. Speaking before ASEAN foreign ministers, Del Rosario said the ISIS threat to Philippine security is real rather than imagined because of the Black Flag Movement’s pledge of allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

ISIS has followers among the Abu Sayyaf, Rajah Solaiman Islamic Movement, Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters and the Khilafa Islamiyah Mindanao or the Black Flag Movement, according to the presentation of Rommel Banlaoi, Philippine Institute for Peace, Violence and Terrorism Research (PIPVTR) chairman of the board, and director of the Center for Intelligence and National Security Studies (CINSS).

It’s well known throughout the military that what you earn while in uniform is nothing compared to what you could be earning working overseas for a private security contractor, otherwise known as a private military contractor.

Although major combat operations have ended in Iraq and are about to end in Afghanistan, the need for these security contractors throughout the world will always exist. Many veterans separating from the military are interested in working for a PSC overseas. But before you apply, you should know a little bit about what you’re getting into.

In September 2007, a convoy of armored vehicles carrying private security contractors employed by the firm then known as Blackwater USA approached a large traffic circle in Baghdad. Minutes later, 17 Iraqi civilians in that square were dead, and 24 others had been wounded.

The sentencing this month of four Blackwater guards in the attack — which included the slaying of a 9-year-old Iraqi boy and a young mother — has focused new attention on what can happen when armed contractors encounter civilian populations amid the haze of conflict. But by the time the guards confronted the crowd in Nisoor Square, and the bullets started flying, it may already have been too late to avert the tragedy.

Over the past decade, private contractors have been deployed extensively around the globe. In addition to supporting U.S. and allied forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, contractors have assisted foreign governments, nongovernmental organizations, and private businesses by providing a wide range of services, including base support and maintenance, logistical support, transportation, intelligence, communications, construction, and security.

At the height of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, contractors outnumbered U.S. Troops deployed to both theaters. Although these contractors are not supposed to engage in offensive combat, they may nonetheless be exposed to many of the stressors that are known to have physical and mental health implications for military personnel.

Four years ago, President Barack Obama declared the end of the Iraq war. So much of that fight and our current involvement in the Middle East is carried out by a privatized military.

Back in 2003 Iraq invasion, there was the predictable commentary about why we went to war and what the consequences were. And there was some attention given to the fact that this had been the most privatized military engagement in U.S. history, with private contractors actually outnumbering traditional troops — the “First Contractors’ War,” as Middlebury College scholar Allison Stanger called it in 2009. No one, however, talked about the possibility of a second contractors’ war, a topic that may surface sooner than we anticipated and one that yields a multitude of questions.

So you’re getting out of the military soon, or separated recently and you thought you would jump into the world of private contracting.  The pay is lucrative, the brotherhood you miss from military life is there, and you like to travel – so why not?  Whether it’s the glamorous world of high threat mobile security or just the logistics job on a FOB overseas, there are a few things you should know before going into the game.

First and foremost, you need to discuss this with your spouse/significant other/kids/cat/etc… before deciding on this. If you’re single and don’t like women, then you can skip this part. Working overseas is tough on family life, especially kids and marriages/relationships.  If you thought yearlong deployments were tough while in the military, now add in coming home for a few weeks every 3-6 months and trying to fit back into a family life, knowing that you’re heading back out again shortly.

Erik Prince has a message for ISIS: You’re lucky Blackwater is gone…

Last week, the controversial founder of the private military company had plenty to say about what the organization he once ran could be doing in the fight against the so-called Islamic State—and also why Republicans need to stop being such losers.

“It’s a shame the [Obama] administration crushed my old business, because as a private organization, we could’ve solved the boots-on-the-ground issue, we could have had contracts from people that want to go there as contractors; you don’t have the argument of U.S. active duty going back in there,”

Private Military Company (PMC), or private military or a security company, provides military and armed security services. These combatants are commonly known as mercenaries, though modern-day PMCs euphemistically prefer to refer to their staff as security contractors or private military contractors.

The services and expertise offered by PMCs are typically similar to those of governmental military or police forces, most often on a smaller scale. While PMCs often provide services to train or supplement official armed forces in service of governments, they can also be employed by private companies to provide bodyguards for key staff or protection of company premises, especially in hostile territories.

Dismissing private military contractors as mercenaries can be simplistic and misleading, as their deployment in Sierra Leone’s Civil War displayed. That the country is rebounding despite 2014’s Ebola crisis is due in part to the success of contracted firms neutralising destabilising rebel groups.

For impoverished Sierra Leone with its history of civil warfare, more unwelcomed news came with the Ebola plague that commenced mid-2014 and continued to claim victims and exhaust precious national resources through October and November.

Absent on Wednesday in a Washington courtroom, where a federal jury entered guilty verdicts of murder and manslaughter against four Blackwater Worldwide guards in the killings of 14 Iraqi civilians, was a man synonymous with the United States’s infatuation with contractors. He is Erik Prince — billionaire, former Navy Seal, ex-CIA spy — the founder of Blackwater.

Prince is a man accustomed to drama. Numerous agencies have interrogated him. Members of Congress and reporters have hurled accusations against his company: murder, wrongful death, prostitution, negligence, weapons smuggling and racial discrimination. He has been called a “war profiteer,” a “mercenary” and a “right-wing crusader.” He sold the company and started a new one under a different name.

The Emergence of Private Security in Kurdistan

Post Date: October 6, 2014 | Category: The Danger Zone

Professional Overseas Contractors
The private security industry is still regarded as a relatively new phenomenon where both International and domestic law have not managed to catch up its rapid development. The emergence of private security in the Kurdistan Region can be seen as a result of the 2003 Iraq War, which is widely considered to be the first privatised war.

From the conflicts inception, coalition forces began to dismantle Saddam Husseins security apparatus, leading to a severe security vacuum across all of Iraq (with the exception of the Kurdistan Region, being governed by the KRG). This weakening of state security meant that coalition forces were unable to adequately provide security for diplomatic missions, NGO reconstruction efforts or humanitarian aid missions.

Troops deployed by the thousands, adorned with camouflaged combat wear, tough boots ready to tread the ground of conflict territories and hands at one with a military-grade rifle – This is the image we often see when nations instigate war, but do we ever really think about exactly who is fighting it?It seems this vision has become more blurred in recent decades as reports have surfaced recently highlighting that immigrants, some illegal, are recruited to the service by mercenaries – what are now referred to as Private Military Companies or contractors (PMC). Fear of the companies have once again been affirmed by the newest installment of the Call of Duty franchise, Advanced Warfare, which follows mercenaries who have turned against the US Government.

President Obama announced this week he intends to intensify this country’s military actions against ISIS terrorist forces but with no U.S. boots “on the ground.” This “no boots on the ground” situation has been a political football, with Obama making pledges and promises to have all U.S. troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan by certain dates.

When military actions are reported by Pentagon, White House or State Department officials, they are quick to say “no U.S. boots on the ground,” aside from when Obama called for 500 or so Marines to be sent to Iraq to help protect the U.S. Embassy and/or to offer advice to Iraqi military forces. They could not be more emphatic in telling the American public that no U.S. boots on the ground meant no combat troops.

As the military strategy against the Islamic State (IS) is slowly getting clearer, some suggest employing private military companies (PMCs) to fill the strategic void in Iraq. After the signing of the Jeddah Communique, the option of raising a private Muslim expeditionary force was discussed among the security circles of the participating states. Recalling the murky areas left from the first contractors’ war, perhaps, it is time to ask: Is the Iraqi government institutionally ready for the forthcoming second contractors’ war?

Having a security clearance can open doors to exciting and unique jobs which uncleared job seekers aren’t eligible to pursue. Working overseas as a contractor can be an appealing and rewarding option for adventurous job seekers. Applying for overseas jobs isn’t always an easy decision. Overseas jobs vary considerably, and it is wise to get as much information about the job requirements and expectations before signing on the dotted line. Depending on the country or region, special consideration may be necessary before moving forward.

The US-led NATO coalition’s inability thus far to negotiate a bilateral security agreement (BSA) with the Afghan government, necessary for the US and NATO to maintain military forces in Afghanistan beyond 2014, has led many analysts to speculate that Afghanistan’s national security will markedly deteriorate if the country is left to its own devices.

Alessandro GagliardiWhile the successful negotiation of a BSA would formally authorize the United States to maintain between 7000 and 9000 military troops in Afghanistan, if no such authorization materializes, a foreign security force is likely to remain in Afghanistan regardless. In this case, the foreign force is less likely to consist of NATO troops but rather a multitude of private military companies (PMCs), that will continue to operate primarily under the auspices of Western agencies to support diplomatic missions, civil reconstruction efforts and other security operations, says Alessandro Gagliardi.

The name Blackwater became famous after the 2007 event in which guards from the security firm’s Raven 23 unit opened fire in Baghdad’s Nisour Square on September 16. The shootings, which the Iraqi government said were unprovoked, killed 14 people and wounded 20 others.

The guards claimed they came under attack from insurgents while carrying out their duties for the State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service (DSS), which had hired the firm that has since undergone multiple name changes (Blackwater Worldwide, then Xe Services, now Academi).

At the time of the Sept. 11 attacks, the U.S. military included 1.4 million active personnel and nearly 1 million more in the reserves — plus hundreds of thousands of civilians at the Pentagon and civilian agencies across the national security complex. It was a smaller force than the one that had fought the Persian Gulf War a decade earlier, but still enough, in pre-9/11 Pentagon war plans, to fight two simultaneous regional battles.

However, for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, this force was not enough. And so our government faced choices: raise a larger army, call up more reservists, hire more civilians or rely on contractors. At some point, the government exercised all these options. But for the first time in U.S. history, it chose to rely so heavily on contractors that, at the height of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, contractor personnel outnumbered troops in each theater of war.

The danger and demand of contracting jobs in combat zones may have benefits worth packing your bags for. Most contractors overseas make anywhere from $80,000  to $250,000 a  year. Defense contracting has expanded dramatically over the last decade, particularly in the United States, where in the last fiscal year the Department of Defense alone spent nearly $316 billion on contracts overseas.

Many of the jobs for US contractors can be found in the Middle East, Europe, and Africa. Regardless of your profession or ideal destination, there are plenty of opportunities for clearing professionals looking to make money and enhance their career and experience.

"Hidden manna from the promised "White Stone", Rev 2:17 P1446:5, 131:3.3 . . . It is evil to see sin where there is no sin; TO SEE NO SIN WHERE THERE IS SIN. Evil is the path of FALSE DOCTRINES. Those who avoid evil BY SEEING THINGS AS THEY ARE gain joy by thus embracing the truth. Make an end of your misery BY LOATHING SIN. When you look up to the Noble One, turn away from sin with a whole heart. Make no apology for evil; MAKE NO EXCUSE FOR SIN. By your efforts to make amends for past sins you acquire strength to resist future tendencies thereto. Restraint is born of repentance. Leave no fault unconfessed to the Noble One. 131:3.4 (1447.1) “Cheerfulness and gladness are the rewards of deeds well done and to the glory of the Immortal. No man can rob you of the liberty of your own mind. When the faith of your religion has emancipated your heart, when the mind, like a mountain, is settled and immovable, then shall the peace of the soul flow tranquilly like a river of waters. Those who are sure of salvation are forever free from lust, envy, hatred, and the delusions of wealth. While faith is the energy of the better life, nevertheless, must you work out your own salvation with perseverance. If you would be certain of your final salvation, then make sure that you sincerely seek to fulfill all righteousness. Cultivate the assurance of the heart which springs from within and thus come to enjoy the ecstasy of eternal salvation. ~~ Urantia Book Paper 131 ~~
