An American corporation, Blackwater USA, is hiring mercenaries from Chile to guard oil installations in Iraqi. The ex-commandos, troops and seamen are being trained at a facility in North Carolina before being transferred to Iraq.
The recruiting programme has being going on for 6 months and the $4,000-a-month hired hands are to join 10,000 security personnel already based in the middle eastern country.
There are reported to be many former special forces guards from Bosnia, the Philippines and the US already out there and the trend is proving to be controversial to regular troops already serving in the former war zone. Source
