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.

Mr Facts
How fake was the beginning of the horrible reporter that was treated like a VIP and pretended to be under attack lmfao how bout actually reporting all the thousands of innocent people that have been murdered by the them and the tons of crimes that have committed no instead you lie as MSM reporters do and make a report exactly how Blackwater wanted to look morons VICE was great when it first came out yrs ago but then they just turned into another CNN n FOX news station pathetic

Supposedly a legit PMC. The main man sticks a pistol in his pants and rides around on a moped with an overt vest and radio on display in a "hostile environment". Either this was a bunch of actors or they are the poorest PMC ever.

That lady was right. These PMCs are getting away with murder.. Blood money..

Many guys who have infantry or special ops service tend to go into PMC work because always have a lot money in that business

Seemed a bit...staged. And the VICE reporter was FAT as shit. Way too fat for actual combat zone reporting. Been in way too many combat zones myself to fall for this crap. STAGED!!

*Killing and being killed don't seem like a good occupation. GOD BLESS ALL!*
i still can't tell if the call of duty plug is a joke or not... an unsettling joke

You know, i wanted to join the military in Czech Republic, but they pay a jack shit and don’t give any advantages in life for the service.
Now that i know that the best private military academy in Europe is in czech, changes the whole story. It is somthn that I definitely will consider in the future

There have been private armies for thousands of years.

It is less of a "Rise" and more of a recognition.

The Crystal Meth Epidemic Plaguing Superpower for Hire: Rise of the Private 1 day ago   18:58

Fresno is experiencing a meth epidemic.

Located in California’s Central Valley, the city is a hub for many major highways and is surrounded by vast farmlands. And while now, most meth is smuggled from Mexico, the valley was once an ideal location for meth manufacturing labs in the 1990's.

Today, methamphetamine is the number one threat for the Central Valley Drug Task Force, and, because latinos make up half of Fresno's population, they are also being affecting by this epidemic.

VICE's Paola Ramos traveled to Fresno to explore the history, factors and the ongoing relationship between the Latino community and methamphetamine use.
