So Margaret Thatcher's son was arrested for his role in a coup attempt in Equatorial Guinea last March (what, oil?, where were the coup plots when it was just another brutal, oilless, inconsequential regime you great humanitarians?).
What raises my interest is this, however:
Regulation of Foreign Military Assistance Act - the law that, among other things, expressly prohibits South African residents from engaging in "mercenary activity".
So why are South African mercenaries on the US payroll in Iraq?
