A private security firm, Blackwater USA, has lost it license to operate in Iraq. The reason given for this is that a small number of civilians were killed during a shootout with rebels in Baghdad. I would think that the Iraqi officials would be aware that there is always a danger of civilians getting in harm's way when these men are trying to do their job to protect the innocent civilians. Blackwater USA, out of North Carolina, is only one of numerous private security firms that are employed in Iraq. It also begs the question, why, if things are so much better as we continue to hear in the media, it is still necessary to employ so many of these people.

I think the situation is not that much better in Iraq as the media showing specially if you try to review many many other media news and article publishing day after day, ofetn the truth is not focused on media and later some other incident bring out the truth which were suppressed before, The Iraq's situation can only be felt if you go there, not even seeing the documentary or media news, its very hadr to feel the pain like them who is actually suffering, as long as we don't have the cuts so we can never feel, they are still living a life just like a hell, not even we can imagine staying at the comfort of our home, its just hell and also they have lost their all, the sons, the mothers, the children which nobody can return ever, so yes they still need supprot and help until they can atleast breathe, they can never be like before but atleast can walk on their feet
