Thugs for hire
Does anyone get the feeling that this type of thing will lead to long-term trouble for Iraq?Guardian Unlimited | The Guardian | US contractor recruits guards for Iraq in Chile The US blames "foreign infiltrators" for some of the violence directed against its own troops (who are, of course, foreigners themselves in Iraq). But various news reports over the last couple of months indicate that mercenaries from all over the world are also flooding into Iraq as well, to act as "security" for all of the private contractors there. Its a new gold rush for thugs of all kinds, and I expect the Iraqis will have a terrible time getting rid of them.
