Mercenaries seem to be the norm these days. I have been working the fabulous fuckup in Libya of Haftar's Flying Circus. It's a great story. The Venezuala story made me sad because there seemed like there should be a shoot out. I was told there would be shoot outs.

Right. Largest oil reserves in the world and likely gold too. Do the math, it's always been about greed.

Then sanctions, sanctions, sanctions. Somebody really ought to write a song.
