We live in a society which does not condone hit men, murderers for hire
But yet we have legitimate big businesses recruiting mercenaries who are contracted by the government to provide security in fire zones.
Peter Singer wrote a book about the private military industry which is reputed to earn 100 billion dollars annually worldwide.


Governmental hiring of mercenaries grew but did not begin with Shrub Jr., Clinton also sent work to contractors so hold up on your demonizations.
Blackwater the company that owns a 5200 acre training camp in the
Great Dismal Swamp of North Carolina trains soldiers in counter terrorism and urban warfare, as well as, providing soldiers for hire to the US government.
They have been in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Liberia, Rwanda, Pakistan, Iraq, and built detention centers for holding Al Queda suspects in Guantanamo Bay Cuba.


Some of former dictator Pinochet of Chileís commandoes are being trained by Backwater.
And young urban poets enamored of past 60ís Black History pound their chests and talk about urban revolution in todayís time utilizing 40 year old tactics.
Revolution can no longer be fueled by poor people with grand ideas.
Can you say Brown & Root?
Can you say Halliburton?
Can you say $ 9 million for a study?


Revolution must start with children receiving meaningful education once more beyond basketball and football when elevated beyond recreational status.
Revolution must begin with conservation of our resources at every level beginning with the mindset.
Why are you the only ones who think
$2-3000 spinning car rims are fresh?


Revolution is churches pooling their resources buying acreage and purchasing fuel tanks to store gasoline at bulk and reselling it at realistic prices like the oil robber barons donít.
Revolution is a commitment to safe sexual practices Black women because you canít leave it to the men from whom you are contracting AIDS and dying.
The men donít own the candy store you do.
Revolution is killing anyone who rapes your or your children.


Revolution is shutting the fuck up if all you are prepared to do is
TALK!
