Blackwater Shoots NYT Dog

OK, now they've gone too fucking far. Its one thing to be shooting civilians (For sport? There have been reports, which I can't find, about Blackwater's people taking pot shots at oncoming traffic for no apparent reason.), but its another to be shooting a newspaper's dog.
As Twain once said, "never pick a fight with a man who buys his ink by the barrel." It's an even worse idea to kill his dog. In the latest development in the Blackwater saga Blackwater killed the New York Times' dog and the State Department is investigating the shooting. (Like I said, you can't make this stuff up.)

According to Reuters, Blackwater claims the shooting was defensive in order to protect the lives of it's K-9 and K-9 handler:

I could have done without the Twain quote (overused), but it isn't my blog.

How depressing. They've taken the "defensive" shootings too far when they can't even be bothered to isolate the animal (shooting's easier.) And the NTT staffer who said, "nobody liked the dog anyway?"

Its hard to believe no one in the NYT compound befriended that dog. That's just astonishing.

Man, have those guys never seen Walker, Texas Ranger (the movie)? As I recall. it wasnt until the Bad Guys killed Chucks dog that he got mad and started his smackdown on them; his best friend killed? feh! His girlfriend killed? Pooh! But his dog killed? Time to open a can of whoop-ass!!!

Jesus, I thought everybody knew that.

Well, some people just ain't got no culture and probably haven't saw the movie.*
