34. I know one of these contractor types.
I know a guy who does work similar to this. While in the USA, he works for a well known Civil Rights organization. His job is basically body guard/threat assessment. He does noble work that is useful when you think about all the crazy people out there.

He has had a chance to go over to Iraq, and help bodyguard some of the new Iraqi Officials. He didnt go, but if he had, I would say that he wouldn't have deserved to die over it.

I think it is an outright lie to call these people mercenaries. They aren't there to kill people. They are there to defend people and save lives.
