Private Armies

Quoting Russian news website "Russian Oil Majors seek to form own Police Force". Well can this be really termed as the adventures of capitalism in modern Russia? Will this lead to same siuation we had around 200 years ago? OR is this just a paranoidal thought reminding an Indian like me of the British invasion and not really repeat of the history?

These questions need to be probed more. More and More corporate entities are now recruiting armed personnel to thwart the dangers arising to their enterprise in these uncertain times. Does this reflect the strength of these corporations or the failure of the so called governments of those nations?

If it is the disappointing failure of today's governments, are we ready to face the consequences of such an endeavours by the corporations and then the resulting backlash from it?

lets think a bit more on it....
