Good or Bad Private Military Companies are quite the controversial topic with many angles to the dangle. VICE has put together a decent video overview on the current state of the PMC industry. Some may consider the PMC to be a modern concept, but clearly mercenaries, soldier for hire, hired guns, soldiers of fortune, whatever you want to call them are as old as war itself. VICE may have its own agenda, but bringing interesting content such as this keeps us intrigued. Throw in Robert Young Pelton and Eric Prince definitely lends some validity to their coverage.
