It's a profession, a career

Hard to say what the credibility index is here, but it's certainly an interesting idea: were the IRA volunteers caught in Colombia there essentially as mercenaries, hiring out their valuable experience and technical advances to finance the movement after US donations dropped off?

It's an exit strategy more than a few armies have followed - getting out, going into guerrilla consultancy.

The Elvis Costello site lists the lyrics as "it's a professional career", but I think I like yours better.

What a great song that is, anyway.

Been lurking for months -- those occasional appearances by Armenian IPs? That's me -- and took this odd opportunity to say, great stuff, please keep up the good work.
