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?

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.
