I know nothing about modern private merc
forces, but historical ones have shown a
preference for not getting paid instead
of fighting any stronger forces.

On the other had, a DIY approach, rather
than a market solution, provides you with
solutions to two problems:

- you will have defensive force available,
  even under adverse conditions.

- you will have offensive force available
  for adverse possession as a means to
  acquiring clean title to your island.

I hope you've found a better alternative.
Any news?


(Anyone have estimates for the costs of
the forces required to occupy or defend
various types of islands? Would a check
against land prices give us an estimate
for the value of sovereignty?)
