Private Military
"While the Hessians are commonly
referred to as mercenaries, most
were conscripted into service rather
than being paid for their service."
~ Barry M. Baker
During the 2008 presidential primaries,
presidential candidate Senator Hillary
Clinton introduced legislation to ban the
use of private military firms in Iraq.  
Barack Obama retained his standard
enigma status by simply saying that he
would not "rule out" the use of private
military firms.

One of the best ways you can prepare
yourself for a police career is to develop
an interest in politics, and – most
importantly – listen to what politicians
say.  Now, understand I didn't say
believe what politicians say, I just said
listen to what they say.  It's an excellent
exercise in separating fact from fiction
which will become a perpetual exercise
you'll continue during your police career.
Long before nations, in any form,
maintained standing armies, kings and
warlords conscripted or hired people to
fight for them.  A quarter of the British
force in the colonies during the American
Revolutionary War were Hessian troops.  
While the Hessians are commonly
referred to as mercenaries, most were
conscripted into service rather than being
paid for their service.  The payment for
their services went to the kings who
conscripted them and the commanders
who led them.

The dictionary definition of the noun
mercenary is, "a professional soldier
serving in a foreign army for pay."  Aside
from the definition being in conflict with
many military related operations over
history, the word mercenary has simply
become politically incorrect in today's
politically correct environment.  While the
definition could still apply to some private
military operations today, the activities of
today's modern private military
contractors have evolved well beyond a
soldier fighting for pay.
