The rise of the Bio-Robots. Private Military Contractors (PMC)

June 10, 2014  GRIFFIN says:

I want to start with an unusual topic on which almost no discussion here,but its an invisible but very essential part of the War we're seeing now... its Private Military Contractors (some even term them Mercenary).

I've heard about these agencies,starting from Ex-SAS Watchguard to modern Blackwater.but these involvements are so sketchy that its almost invisible from our eye.but its a fact that for every 10 soldiers in earth,there is at least 1 PMC soldier serving on various fronts. They're pay grade is massive,their contribution is even greater. They are better trained than many professional army's soldiers.

Let's start a discussion on this much neglected entity,and their involvement, whatever we could find and gather...

They are perfect for escorting supply lines, as well as operating in areas of operations where there are a multitude of fronts. Its perfect also if the environment involves tribal regions that are inter-dependent from each other. 

Mercenaries with excellent understanding of the local language, dialect, and customs are invaluable assets to any expeditionary force.

Private Military Companies  (excerpts)

The term “private military companies” or, as some prefer, “private security companies,” has only recently entered the lexicon. The issue became pertinent to a lot of Americans when the headline “Blackwater Mercenaries Deploy in New Orleans” appeared in a September 10, 2005 news report.

Overnight, we were told, squads of heavily-armed private security contractors were out on patrol in the streets of this stricken Louisiana city. That followed serious hurricane and flood damage in the wake of America’s biggest catastrophe since the Civil War.

Details were sparse. What soon became clear was that some of these mercenaries-many who had just returned from stints of active duty in Iraq-had not only been “deputized” but wore gold Louisiana state law enforcement badges on their chests. That was in addition to their Blackwater USA photo ID cards. The pay, one of them intimated, was $350 a day, only a fraction of what the men were earning out east where a good operator can get anything between $80,000 and $180,000 a year depending on specialties and risk.

When asked what they were doing there, those who would talk to the media-there were many who wouldn’t-said that they were part of a Homeland Security deployment. They had the authority to use lethal force to maintain order, they declared, though once the matter had become controversial, that was disputed by Eddie Compass, the New Orleans Police Commissioner.

Also, it is no secret that Blackwater USA is one of the field leaders among PMCs/PSCs in Iraq an Afghanistan. 

Correction: Blackwater was dissolved in 2009 
Blackwater now operates under a different name "Academi". 
For a little while it operated under the name "Xe Services"

The company has numerous government contracts! Its men provide security to American embassies, VIPs, government officials, workplaces and construction sites (including getting crews to and from them on often-dangerous roads) and so on. In fact, the list is extensive, especially when determined and competent groups of zealots are in the business of killing people.

Blackwater works extensively with private corporations in other parts of the globe. Indeed, Gary told me in late 2004, company contracts were rapidly edging up toward the billion dollar mark, which, he admitted, is nice work if you can get it.

Though the jury is still out on the future role of the hired gun in international politics, a landmark decision was made in London in early 2002, when Whitehall gave the nod to regulating Private Military Companies. The British Foreign and Commonwealth Office-in response to a request from a parliamentary committee-released a briefing paper on the subject which noted that in the post-Cold War world, “The demand for private military services is likely to increase.”

They are creating more insecurity and problems than good in war-zones.

They are useless, they don't follow code of conducts but starts shooting like monkeys when engaged by enemy, with no care to civilian lifes.

once they got hit by a magnetic bomb in Kabul, and they thought that it was an ambush, they started shooting around and they ended up killing 3 or 4 civilians.

Since then, they are not allowed to be in Afghanistan.


Afghan India now BANNED

    1. Thanks Emma. Appreciated. It's nice to see another woman who is able to look at military tactics including the place of PMCs in child trafficking. Please Search PMC or PMCs child trafficking on this blog, eg: "DynCorp child trafficking". Thanks for following my blog.
