Private contractors, or mercenaries, i chose the first name for the topic so maybe it won't be closed now. (Doublespeak you know..) Ok, what do you think? it's ok that the goverments of the "Civilized World" pay mercenaries to do the dirty work? The number of mercenaries has climbed exponentialy since the gulf war. They do not wear uniform and they are not bound by the genova conventions. A test ground for this privates armys is Colombia, where the corporation DynCorp operates since 1993. In this video you can see London-based company Aegis Defence Services mercenaries shotting at random civilians for fun.. http://movies.crooksandliars.com/Aegis-PSD.wmv The file was downloaded from: http://www.aegisiraq.co.uk/ Seem to be a site made not by aegis but by aegis employes (Mercenaries) I think privatization of war is a subject very important to discus and should not be censored... Someone who has been paid to kill will not follow an ideal, will not fight for patriotism, not for his country, will only kill for money, doesn't matters if it's ok or wrong, if he is killing the bad guys or the good guys, he will KILL FOR MONEY. This is a barbaric practice that should be prohibited.
