The Real Butchers of Baghdad: G. W. Bush and His Army of Mercenaries

05-05-2004 16:29

Among the mercenaries being trained in the US and deployed to Iraq, some on the Pentagon payroll, are former commandos from the brutal Pinochet regime and "enforcers" from South Africa's former Aparthied regime."
