Death of a mercenary

A former member of the Australian Army working as a private security guard in Iraq has been killed in a roadside attack in Baghdad.

There are thought to be as many as several hundred Australians working as security guards in Iraq - some of them former SAS members - and 10,000 to 20,000 foreign security contractors in all.

Spewin'. I know my job wasn't worth dying for. Guess it doesn't matter how much the pay is. Still, I'm sure these guys couldn't live without the rush of throwing themselves into dangerous situations. Addicted to the rush. Perhaps we can look at this like another OD.

Feel better about it, now?
