Vice takes an unprecedented look into the shadowy industry of Private Military Companies. For the past two decades these private companies, like Black Water, Aegis and G4S have silently consumed military operations around the world, doing everything from back end logistics, protection of government VIP's and diplomats to actual combat duties. In this documentary we explore the origins of this industry, their rise in the war on terror and their future operations around the world.

what I think people don't understand is that PMC's are doing this because their goverment couldn't pay them enough to give their life, people need money and if the only way you know how to make money is shooting then a PMC is your best choice

Pirates were one of the most popular mercenaries many years ago. Empires were paying pirates just to ''terrorize'' other empires ships. Mercenaries is not something new.

OUR Republic- Never Give In
You play combat in your video games, and bash soldiers in real life.
You are protected by Alpha males, because you are soy-boy cowards who couldn't fist fight to defend yourself.
Your hairy pitted women, who are not fucked properly by you, are secretly fucking us on the side.
The millennial and generation Z "males" are like little French men. Cowards with no muscle or testosterone at all.
You are like sheep in a coral, you would be killed by the wolves if not for the sheepdogs, yet you despise the sheepdogs. Pathetic.

Follow Royal Marines training US Marines in the Arctic for the first time. The US Marines are put through their paces to prepare them for survival in sub-zero conditions. The training takes place in Norway, close to the Russian border. It comes as tensions between Russia and the West run high, with the UK Defence Secretary warning countries must "defend against Russian aggression."
