Corporations or the Global Community

This article reveals how private military contractors business has been booming in the last 15 years. The purpose is to provide equipment for the local governments to ensure peace keeping operations. Interestingly, private contracting, which has had many negative connotations due to Black Water, may be much more successful for supplying equipment to African nations to keep the peace. Private business's will provide warranty and back up equipment when the veichle is damed or breaks down, while the international community does not offer such support. Interestingly too, one of my customers has a relative that works for such a company that is doing similiar bussness in Africa. Contrary to past experiences, this may be a case where the private sector can solve a problem the international community can not.
