Britain at Forefront of Deadly Mercenary Trade

Today's "Dogs Of War" Are Just As Likely To Pose For Selfies As Topple Dictators.
British firms are at the forefront of a lethal mercenary trade with hundreds of private firms, employing thousands in a billion dollar private army industry. A new report by campaign group War on Want, titled “Mercenaries Unleashed: The brave new world of private military and security companies,” reveals how the vast industry of private military and security companies (PMSCs) has mushroomed to become a trade worth hundreds of billions of dollars. With key posts often filled by ex-members of the military or intelligence services, the sinister trade burst onto the scene 15 years ago, following the declaration of a ‘war on terror’ and the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. Unsurprisingly, the shadowy world is dominated by hundreds of U.K. companies reaping enormous profits from exploiting war, instability and conflict around the world.
