Apparently Mercenaries are still going strong…who’d a thunk it?

23 08 2004

Reuters is carrying a story about 14 mercenaries on trial, led by a man who used to work for “Executive Outcomes”, that were planning to overthrow Equatorial New Guinea’s Government.  Wow…they still do this stuff.   They had a group of 70 men that were going to go in and perform the coup, ala “The Dogs of War“.  Seems so far and so unreal.  Apparently the attempt was back in March.  Makes you wonder how often this kind of thing goes on.  Also, how exactly do 70 guys take on an entire army…I gues you have to hope that the majority don’t like the hours or the pay, and are waiting for a chance to revolt…Yikes.
