Think Colombia, 1975-present... http://news.scotsman.com/latest.cfm?id=3158785 snip> A team of 10 security officers are expected to follow shortly afterwards as part of a 6-month contract through an American firm working for the US Government. Brett Burgis, 31, a director at the company, said: Were sending 10, maybe more, for security, close protection and body guarding. It will be possibly VIP personnel out there, and people at high risk. With whats going on at the moment, with the Saddam Hussein trial in Baghdad, its not going to be very safe there at all. The security guards can earn around £170,000 working for six months at about £1,000 a day. They are there to do the job and thats what they are worth, Mr Burgis said.
