Mercenaries — UN Troops – What’s the Difference?   Leave a comment

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

This refers to King George hiring foreign mercenary troops to fight against the colonists. Remember the Hessians?

Again, we’re not living the same experience as the colonists, but there are similarities. Consider that President Obama and his administration tend to think we ought to follow United Nations’ edicts. Consider that federal officials frequently override state laws that are appropriate within that state. Was anyone being hurt by Jim Wilde not having his boat registered on the Yukon River? State of Alaska Troopers and Fish & Game officers didn’t think it was important enough to bother him. The National Park Service, however, though it was worth boarding his boat and threatening his passengers with guns.

Are we sure we want to get to a point where Obama or some future president authorizes the blue helmets into, say, Alaska to calm us all down and force us to be good little socialists?
