Pro-Trump Blackwater Issues Vague Threat: ‘We Are Coming’

As President Donald Trump calls for removal of 2,000 U.S. forces from Syria, and 7,000 from Afghanistan, the former private contractor security firm Blackwater USA issued a vague threat in the January/February print issue of the gun and hunting magazine “Recoil.”

Blackwater, which has a history of killing innocent civilians, took out a full-page ad, in all black with words “We are coming,” notes the Military Times:

The Recoil ad suggests Blackwater is making a resurgence on its own, but it was not clear in what form. The public affairs firm that handles [Blackwater founder Erik] Prince’s media engagements told Military Times Friday that he would not be able to speak beyond what was in the media “at this stage.” Prince has courted President Donald Trump’s administration since he took office with the idea that the now 17-year Afghan War will never be won by a traditional military campaign. Prince has also argued that the logistical footprint required to support that now multi-trillion dollar endeavor has become too burdensome. Over the summer and into this fall Prince has engaged heavily with the media to promote the privatization; particularly as the Trump administration’s new South Asia Strategy, which was crafted with Mattis, passed the one-year mark.
