    No it wasn’t “guys like these”. These were Blackwater mercenaries. Guns for hire. They were not low paid American heros fighting for a cause. These were highly paid guns for hire fighting for the money.

    It wasn't the mold and mildew in the showers that they were bitching about. It was the fact that when people stepped into those showers, they were electrocuted to death.

    Iraq Military Officer Says He Was Electrocuted in Shower

    WASHINGTON -- An Army military police officer says he was knocked unconscious and severely burned by an electric shock in a shower trailer in Iraq that was installed by the same contractor an Army criminal investigation has pegged in an electrocution death.

    Pfc. Justin Shults, 21, said Monday that he suffered his injuries last October in a shower trailer that KBR Inc. had delivered to his unit. Shults, who is recovering in an outpatient unit at Fort Sam Houston in Texas, said in a telephone interview he has burns on his limbs and groin.


    Shults said he turned on the water and, finding it still too cold in the shower, adjusted a wall heating and air conditioner unit. He was knocked out by an extreme electric shock, he said, and was taken for medical treatment by other soldiers who noticed severe burns on his leg.


    "It was red and parts of it were bleeding out," said Shults, who is from Hamburg, Pa.


    The incident was first reported Monday by the San Antonio Express-News.


    The circumstances of Shults' injuries are similar to those that led to the death of Staff Sgt. Ryan Maseth, 24, a Green Beret from Pittsburgh who was electrocuted in January 2008 while showering in his barracks in Baghdad.

    In my former line of work, that is what we did when we retired from fighting for causes. They can't station active duty with the CIA, so they hire prior military mercs.

    And you couldn't pay me enough to risk my life like they do every day.

    Nine Eleven was nothing compared to a Trump tweet? Are you crazy?

    I have beeb watching the documentaries on 9/11 for the last few days that I saved. To remember that day was a living memory none of us should forget. The people we lost, the heros that went searching for survivors finding only a few, the loved ones listening to the last moments of a phone call that would devestate their family, those in responsible positions doing what ever was possible to get this nation on their feet again... And you say a Trump tweet was worse than all of that???!!!
