Blackwater Protects Japanese Radar

Stars and Stripes reports that in the Japanese village of Shariki, located on the Sea of Japan, two US Army soldiers and a hundred or so contractors live and work around an AN/TPY-2 radar. Stars and Stripes describes it thus:
[The radar unit] points high-powered radio waves westward toward mainland Asia to hunt for enemy missiles headed east toward America or its allies.
It goes on to explain:
The Americans work for Raytheon and Chenega Blackwater Solutions, who, respectively, run the missile radar and provide security at the base.
Just another way that Blackwater is not only protecting a key piece of infrastructure which makes America safer, but is also helping our friends and allies in the free world.
