This may explain why the Kurds gave a contract to Heritage Oil, a company mainly distinguished by its extensive links with the EO/Sandline mercenary network in Africa.
Former Sandline boss Tim Spicer is now running one of the largest private armies in Iraq, in the shape of Aegis Defence Services.

Definitely good news.

Yes. However, even PMC protection didn't help much when Erinys (formerly a SA company and now a Brit PMC) was running the show. I wouldn't hold my breath for improvement from Aegis running the show given Spicer's track record.
