    I think they're kind of like the French army.

    Mercenaries would probably do a better job and have the HUGE benefit of being able to act instead of calling the UN.
    They fulfill numerous roles(esp in Africa) and much more often then not their presence is a benefit to the populace of a nation/region.
    Mercenaries are not EVIL either or nefarious simply by being Mercenaries.That's a really childish outlook on them.

    Whatever..



    Least Belgium is trying to do something.

    Notice how the Big Bad Obama is backing up his mouth?
    Once again Obama flops and it hurts the USA everytime he does that.
    Already hard to take him seriously as it is.

    Maybe he should hire mercenaries.He can sit back and aggrandize himself off their successes or demonize them for their failures..
    ...you know like he does with the US MILITARY.
