Golden Age of the Mercenary [video]

A recent, impartial video piece I produced on the PMCs currently operating in Iraq and Afghanistan. Much of its content will be nothing new to professional operators in the field, but should serve as an excellent primer for those interested in the equipment, trials, travails, successes, obstacles, and failures of professional soldiers risking their lives under the most adverse of circumstances.

Full-res clip also available on YouTube

Though a far cry from the efficiency of the small special forces units, force multipliers, and supreme professionalism demonstrated in the 1980’s by the likes of the now legendary Executive Outcomes, the modern PMC provides a range of services that the branches of our own intelligence agencies and armed services are either incapable, understaffed, or unwilling to provide for reasons of plausible deniability.
