Although American officials claim there isn’t any “confirmation” of American mercenaries in the Ukraine, American combat vet Michael Prysner thinks that mercs are already involved in the Ukrainian turmoil. Prysner pointed up that private American “security contractors” carry out the USA’s “dirty work” around the world. He warned that American private “military” bands pose a serious threat, as most are “a very rare breed of ultra-violent individuals”. Prysner stated that the Pentagon recognises no legal limits to its actions, not even mentioning its “dirty little secrets” about its corporate hitmen. Numerous American mercenaries illegally operate all over the world, and if the USA wants to meddle in the domestic affairs of another country whilst keeping its own hands “clean”, it sends mercs to do their “work” there. Prysner believed that recruiting private contractors is a result of a shift in American military strategy in the last decades. The Iraq War vet has no doubts that, now, squads of American mercenaries are taking part in operations in the Ukraine.
One should note that a source cited by ITAR-TASS earlier reported that the Kiev junta decided to use foreign mercenaries, allegedly Greystone Ltd (a subsidiary of Blackwater) to suppress patriot movements in the Southeastern Ukraine. Answering the question why the junta needed to deploy American mercenaries, Prysner emphasised that the new semi-fascist junta is extremely unpopular in most of the Ukraine, and to avoid losing power over the state apparat, the self-proclaimed putschist leadership is willing to sell off the entire country to the West, saying, “The USA and the EU very much want to secure the results of their operation to bring the Ukraine into their sphere of influence. Of course, neocons like John Kerry and John McCain already push to arm the largely rightwing elements that took power. Of course, we know that they even favour direct military intervention”.
However, as direct military intervention is impossible, the US administration is using private military contractors to invade the country. Thus, they try to shield themselves from responsibility for their client’s actions, attempting to give themselves “deniability”. Prysner estimated that there are about 150 foreign mercs operating in the Ukraine and they pose a significant threat to the civil population, saying, “They were soldiers who came out of special ops forces in the American and other militaries, highly trained in ambushes, in sabotage, and in psy-ops. We know that those who choose to become mercenaries are a very rare breed of ultra-violent individuals”. Military contractors seriously discredited themselves during the war in Iraq, shooting innocent people, and turning the population against them. Prysner noted that the Nisour Square massacre was a vivid example of only one of the mercs’ numerous atrocities, adding, “Myself, when I was in Iraq in 2003-04, regular army soldiers hated the mercenaries there, because they were so reckless”.
Mercs are blowhards. If they faced REAL élite soldiers like the Russian Naval Infantry (they’re not known as the “Black Death” for nought), they’d either run or be smashed. In a standup fight, regular infantry would wax their asses to the max, as mercs only operate in small units that are only useful for scouting, hit-and-run raids, attacks on unarmed civilians, ambushes, or guarding static assets (they lack the heavy arms of the regular infantry, and a larger unit has survivability lacking in a small group… kill 25 soldiers in a battalion, it carries on… kill 25 mercs, you either wipe them out or decimate the unit). In short, the USA couldn’t pluck the junta out of the La Brea Tar Pit that it’s in. All that the USA can do is to prolong its tenure… and kill uncounted thousands.
For this, the neocons deserve to swing at the end of a rope… but they won’t. However, you DON’T have to vote for them this November…
