Anyway, the reason Russian Mafia has so many of those guys on their payroll is because working for the Russian Army will barely cover your bread bill, and you can definitely forget any type of alcohol that doesn't come with a risk of causing blindness.
And as you can imagine, mafia is a little more generous with their finances.
I wonder if America will ever go down that route. Pretty much all the mercenaries working for Blackwater were former Special Forces guys. How long before our soldiers get infected with cynicism, our gov't runs out of money, and all our toughest, meanest guys will be on the corporate payroll?
Looks like all those 80s actions movies are coming true in real life, aren't they?
