Succeed and survive with Blackwater USA

Here’s a promotional video put out by Blackwater USA, the private security firm that’s been accused of using excessive force in protecting U.S. diplomats in Iraq. The company’s training facility in North Carolina isn’t just a paintball course; it’s a sprawling, high-tech campus that gives clients true “force-on-force simulation” and the opportunity to shoot the holy hell out of everything in sight. The video notes that “defensive driving in hostile zones is one of our specialties” — something the Iraqis disagree with in particular. The video closes with a tagline of sorts: “When you face your moment of truth, your Blackwater training will see you through.”
