Mercenary un-American noun (pronounced mur-SEN-airy)
What un-Americans use to fight their battles. While America always has enough willing volunteers to battle the forces of evil where ever they are and under whichever disguise they hide, un-Americans never have enough of their own "people" to fight for their beliefs. To overcome their lack of Freedom-Protection that only an American fighting force can provide, un-Americans hire soldier-types of unknown origin and unknown allegiance in the hopes they would not side with the enemy or sympathise with the enemy's ideology to not fight their wars for them.

Armed units from the private security firm Blackwater USA opened fire in Baghdad streets twice in two days last week. It triggered a standoff between the security contractors and Iraqi forces, a reminder that the war in Iraq may be remembered mostly in our history books for empowering and building America’s first modern mercenary army.There are an estimated 20,000 to 30,000 armed security contractors working in Iraq, although there are no official figures and some estimates run much higher. Security contractors are not counted as part of the coalition forces. When the number of private mercenary fighters is added to other civilian military “contractors” who carry out logistical support activities such as food preparation, the number rises to about 126,000.

The number of U.S.-paid private contractors in Iraq now exceeds that of American combat troops, newly released figures show, raising fresh questions about the privatization of the war effort and the government's capacity to carry out military and rebuilding campaigns.
