Ex-Blackwater CEO Erik Prince is proposing a “private military force” in Afghanistan in place of or along with US marines. He means mercenaries which the US is already using in several countries. Mercenaries who can operate without even the minimum oversight US soldiers operate under in those security agreements giving them impunity for war crimes in Iraq & Afghanistan–similar to the military Special Powers Act (AFSPA) India employs in Kashmir.
Blackwater had to rebrand itself as the Frontier Services Group still under Prince because of the war crimes they were involved in. No to mercenaries. No to US marines. No to war.
