Who/What is Posuer2?

Its a colloquialism with a French twist for Bluewings. FS is Posuer1.

"poser - a person who habitually pretends to be something he is not"

Herald is calling me 'poseur2' .
*************************
I do not really like the overall tone of the "Blackwater" thread in the US folder . Too much BS about so-called Mercs .
In fact is it far more easy than that but not a lot here can grasp the concept . Blackwater 's personals are not Mercs and they are not Bodyguards either . Where that leave them ? Well , right in between and that might means something to you if really think long enough about it . 39.06.31.13.N.76.46.20.18.W

Cheers .

It's just political grandstanding. The Iraqi government wants to try to assert some authority and show independence, but they ain't winning this one. And they shouldn't want to. Blackwater is still a highly professional bunch, or should say a higher than average soldier professional bunch.

A puppet state has no say in such matters, obviously.

I thought they were currently confined to greenzone????
 
surely the Iraqi government do have the final say over who they allow to operate in their own country?  :-)
 
but there will be a compromise where they will be allowed to carry on with their duties after a week or so.....
 
alternatively.. just replace Blackwater with a different PMC doing the same job...
