I was reading recently how many nations are cutting their armed forces and slashing their defence budgets and it got me thinking about this question. What does everyone think about investing in private military companies? Could we see in the near future these private companies being hired to maintain a hold over areas once the main countries force has left? What about security missions and restoring order? My views might be wrong but I can see these companies being needed a lot more within some years. What do others think?
