If it weren't so sad...

it would be hilarious. In fact, it is hilarious.

In a BBC article, a private contractor in Iraq says that

"with the US Army unable to guarantee security, company personnel needed to travel with armed bodyguards, in convoy with armoured vehicles, and should wear body armour and helmets when travelling in insecure areas.

"And he warned that they would have to take their own food and water, organise medical care for their staff, and bring satellite phones for communication.

"On the bright side, he reported that Baghdad's hotels were open, cheap and not full - but many lacked basic services like air-conditioning."
