A Border Agency ship met the cargo vessel and escorted it to Harwich harbour, Essex, where officials found the cash in Libyan currency.

What kind of mercenary would take payment in Libyan currency right now?

It sounds weird, but a lot of Third World countries get their currencies printed by Western mints. For some, like the Royal Canadian Mint, it's big business.

Basically, these countries don't have the technical knowledge or equipment to print modern bank notes with typical security features.

On Team Valley, right by the roundabout for the A1. Place looks like a crap hole from the outside, but from the people I know who work there, security is tight, to say the least

What's Gaddafi gonna do with a country full of unpaid mercenaries?

scanman61: What's Gaddafi gonna do with a country full of unpaid mercenaries?


sell them to countries with wars, and use the money to buy more mercenaries?

PS: Team Gaddafi lost as Ras Lanuf, and Team Feb17 is moving on Sirt, where there are some hopes of Furjans joining Feb17 because the Furjans fighting in Ras Lanuf balked at fighting and were shot. That, and the Saadi brigade got a whupping in Ras Lanuf. So if Sirte falls, then Benghazi to Misurata is clear on the ground. Then it's a matter of neutralizing those planes.

I thought a lot of mercenaries were coming from elsewhere in Africa. If I were evil enough to take that job, I'd only accept Euros. If Gaddafi falls, who knows how much their currency will be worth and I wouldn't want to hang around Libya to spend it.
