Erik Prince raises private army for UAE

According to the New York Times, the UAE has purchased an up to 800 strong army of mercenaries and Erik Prince, founder and former owner of Blackwater is behind it all. Considering the Arab spring that's taken the Middle East and Northern Africa by storm this year.
