Guns For Hire – Afghanistan

This aired a couple of years ago on Skyone in the UK.  It’s about private military companies in Afghanistan:


I haven’t watched it yet, but It looks promising.

Anyone that has seen it have any comments?

      Probably nicer than some of their homes!

  3. The way the .govs throw people under the bus pisses me off.
    Rummy was a prick.

  4. Seems like a crappy PMC to me.

    Poor trigger discipline while the gun is between your legs! They hire police with no military experience. Regardless of the white corolla, who “stages” next to a GAS TANKER?!?!

    Not that they are any better but I’d like to see a documentary on blackwater or triple canopy.

      I recall “Shadow Company” being about blackwater, and I remember it was pretty good.

    God, Global Strategies Group has horrible training, lol. Also, why are they training in country? Shouldn’t they have been trained before they are sent into a dangerous country?

    I would expect more from ex-military.
