Have Gun , Will Travel

According to War on Want , the numbers of mercenaries (or as they are more prosaically described , PMSCs , private military and security companies ) engaged in Iraq stands at 48,000 .

"The government has failed to enact laws to punish their human rights abuses, including firing on Iraqi civilians," said campaigns director John Hilary.
"How can Tony Blair hope to restore peace and security in Iraq while allowing mercenary armies to operate completely outside the law?"

Nuff said .
