VERY good article on mercenaries in Iraq. The more I think and read about these guys, the less I like that they're there. A friend of mine who served in our forces in the former Yugoslavia had a lot of stories about mercs and contractors, none of them particularly glowing. To my eyes, it borders on criminal to be shelling out better than a month's wages for an enlisted man/woman to each of these guys for a day's contract, all while they're not held to any codes of conduct or chain of command.
