Robert Young Pelton first became aware of the phenomenon of hired guns in the War on Terror when he met a covert team of contractors on the Afghanistan/Pakistan border in the fall of 2003. Pelton soon embarked on a globe-spanning odyssey to penetrate and understand this shadowy world, ultimately delivering stunning insights into the way private soldiers are used. Enter a blood-soaked world of South African mercenaries and tribal fighters backed by ruthless financiers. Drop into Baghdad’s Green Zone, strap on body armor, and take a daily high-speed ride with a doomed crew of security contractors who dodge car bombs and snipers just to get their charges to the airport. Share a drink in a chic hotel bar with wealthy owners of private armies who debate the best way to stay alive in war zones. Licensed to Kill spans four continents and three years, taking us inside the CIA’s dirty wars; the brutal contractor murders in Fallujah and the Alamo-like sieges in Najaf and Al Kut; the Deep South contractor training camps where ex–Special Operations soldiers and even small town cops learn the ropes; the contractor conventions where macho attendees swap bullet-punctuated tales and discuss upcoming gigs; and the grim Central African prison where contractors turned failed mercenaries pay a steep price. The United States has encouraged the use of the private sector in all facets of the War on Terror, placing contractors outside the bounds of functional legal constraints. With the shocking clarity that can come only from firsthand observation, Licensed to Kill painstakingly deconstructs the most controversial events and introduces the pivotal players. Most disturbingly, it shows that there are indeed thousands of contractors—with hundreds more being produced every month—who’ve been given a license to kill, their services available to the highest bidder.

For a Christian to see grace as a license to sin is thus the height of presumption. ... Human beings are complicated and our sin patterns are enmeshed in all of our psychological, circumstantial, and relational 54 Licensed to Kill.

The Christian life is not a playground, but a battleground. One of the fiercest foes in this battle dwells within our own hearts: the enemy of indwelling sin. The Scriptures command us to "put sin to death." This is what pastors and theologians of another generation called the "mortification" of sin. But how do we mortify sin? And what role does the gospel play in this effort to apply lethal force against sin? How can we avoid falling into legalism while still maintaining a passion for holiness? And what kinds of strategies actually work in the daily battle? These are questions I have personally wrestled with as both a Christian and a pastor. This book is my attempt to answer those questions and provide a biblical and practical guide for the war against sin.

Barb Every – Wife, Mother, Grand Mother and Great Grand Mother – with all these years and a host of experiences in observing and helping with all sorts of ailments and finding the old remedies of my mother and grand mother often times worked better than the drugs promoted by traditional doctors that only learn prescriptions and surgery in 8 years of Med. School. I started buying health books and monthly news letters by the dozens. When modern medicine nearly killed my dear husband, not once, but two different times, I knew something needed to be done to help others that are being sickened or killed by medicine (poisons). The book “Licensed To Kill” practically wrote itself – it took barely over a week. The title of the book, the names of each chapter just fell into place. Even the cover design of prescription containers was done without much thought on my part. (Divine intervention?) The only addition was Chapter 9, “Here We Go Again”, which personally proved, one more time, what a natural cure (iodine) can do by regulating the pulse, and what medical drugs and procedures cannot do. I'm still reading health books and Newsletters. After all, Natural cures (with no side effects) have been around for literally thousands of years. Drugs and Prescriptions (with many side effects, including death, are relatively new). The Pharmaceutical Companies do not want you well. Why would they? They make their Big Bucks when you are ill and buying their Drugs.
