In March 1995 Executive Outcome, a private paramilitary force, contained an insurrection of guerrillas known as the Revolutionary United Front (RUF) in Sierra Leone, regained control of the diamond fields, and forced a negotiated peace. In both these instances they are credited with rescuing the legitimate government in both countries from destabilizing forces. There are lessons to be learned, and beliefs to be validated in this episode. Namely, that a very small force of trained and dedicated men can triumph over an enemy a thousand times bigger, and the worthless legacy of the United Nations continues to grow.
