    Default security positions with KBR overseas

    http://kbrcareers.webrecruiter.com/p...440003BA74E87F

    On the KBR web site they show 14 "security" type positions in three countries ( Iraq, Afghanistan, Djibouti) overseas.
    I have cut & pasted job descriptions for three positions as a ramdon example of what they are like.

    The job of "Security Technician" seems to be a supervisory and investigatory job, not a "stand guard" job.

    The others are simply observe and report security in Afghanistan or Iraq.

    With no offense intended... I dont mind supervising Americans, British, Canadians, Europeans, Australians, or other friendly country citizens, but I have no interest in having Iraqis, Afghanis or any other third world country citizens running around me with all the potential for insurgency... and I dont even get a BB gun.

    With all these whiny liberals talking about Halliburton being the big-dog military equipment provider to our troops in the middle east, I cant see how KBR guards are not just completely armed to the teeth.

    Oh yeah. Sure. I'll do that escort for you. And, no, I'll not need that nasty ole gun. Right? In my opinion, in a hostile environment, UNARMED and GUARD do not belong in the same sentence.

    I fully agree with that. You may be in a "safe" area, but what happens when the rounds start clicking off in your direction? The most a KBR person can do is...

    6-19-2007 : 0023hrs : S/O Unarmedguard can hear sounds of gunfire nearby, appears to be hostile.

    6-19-2007 : 0045 : S/O Unarmedguard needs medical assistance.

    6-19-2007 : 0101 : S/O Unarmedguard needs a hearse.

    The only way I would work as security in that enviroment would to have a sidearm AND an M249 belt-feed! and maybe a sniper rifle for those "reach out and touch someone" shots!
