Why Does Monsanto Need an Army of Mercenary Soldiers?

The Monsanto Company likes to proclaim that they are the good guys, here to selflessly feed the world, help with sustainable agriculture, and, as if those lofty goals are not enough, champion human rights across the globe. 

So why does such a noble, benevolent company require the services of the most notorious mercenary army of modern times?  Why did Monsanto dish out half a million dollars to an arm of Blackwater called Total Intelligence.

What is Blackwater?

Blackwater is now known as Academi.
''...previously known as Xe Services LLC, Blackwater USA and Blackwater Worldwide - is a private military company founded in 1997 by Erick Prince and Al Clark. Academi is currently the largest of the U.S state department's three private security contractors. Academi provided diplomatic security services in Iraq to the United States federal government on a contractual basis. Academi also has a research and develpment wing that was responsible for developing the Grizzly APC along with other military technology. The company's headquartrs is located in Arlington Court, Virginia.''

How are Blackwater and Monsanto connected?

While rumor had it that Monsanto had actually purchased Blackwater, that is not the case. Monsanto contracted with the mercenary group for “security services”.  In 2010, an illuminating report called Blackwater BlackOps, written by Jeremy Scahill, of The Nation, revealed that Monsanto had given a contract worth up to half a million dollars to Blackwater.
Monsanto has a history of hiring an unscrupulous mercenary army.  Be aware during any activism that agent provocateurs may be afoot, particularly at the larger events.  Don’t rise to the bait of those who would try to deflect protesters from their goal. The goal remains clear – we are here to peacefully spread awareness about Monsanto and about the health and environmental hazards of GMOs.  Around the world, the movement for real food has created an enormous global awakening.  Through the power of social media and alternative news, we are cresting a wave with this event.  We must maintain our unity and momentum, and stay focused on the goal, because with every attack made against us, we may be reassured that Monsanto is on the run.

  1. What if G.I. Joe was really a private for profit mercenary? What if all that talk about protecting the American way was nothing but as PR campaign? Can a used car salesman simply have an awakening, and want to appose such a paradigm? The person who gets that last question wins the prize.
