    This is clearly just propaganda.

    Diver, since you are new, read the rules. When you post something like this and start a thread, you also need to put your thoughts on the topic.

    This would be accurate if it is a projection on to China of how Western powers have been using PMCs.

    Thanks! I will do a deep study into the rules.

    Anyway, will take your advice in future posts.

    The person who is concerned is because he or his regime does exactly this things through their PMC, so they think China does the same. Typical self-righteous arrogance, "democratic"-guns-don't-kill BS.

    PMC’s have been used for a verity of missions from body guards to private security to Training and logistics.
    Exsecutive Outcomes more than Blackwater. Blackwater got in trouble well acting as bodyguards and escorts.
    EO by contrast was caught in direct actions as true mercs.

    Informative article diver18, the author is a US Marine Officer, and as such, here on SDF he's automatically the "bad guy", but a very thoughtful and provocative piece,,, US military forces will no doubt face Chinese PMC on various territories around the globe, particularly where Chinese active duty military is unable to operate in the open....... as well the Chinese Military may encounter US or Western PMCs, one of his suggestions is that the UN formulate operating guidelines for all PMC's, regardless of nationality??

    So it will be a growing problem, and how will we respond if two countries PMC enter into a conflict with one another?

    In my opinion, I don't think it is propaganda since it is neither misleading nor completely biased. It is only an analysis that serves to address potential situations that may pose as a threat to US national security. If it were propaganda, it would use manipulative language and attempt to convince everyone that China is an evil spawn of the devil. However, the article is a bit immature. Chinese PMC's have demonstrated to not act as an irregular force despite their rising numbers and deployments. In addition, there hasn't been instances in which China used that political "lethal force" or any other similar power to force a country's leaders to their knees.
