    No way, I am personally not too interested in sending myself off to be killed.

    You're in an enclosed camp surrounded by barbed wire apparently. I'm told you get a bodyguard on the rare occasions you leave the camp (but what good that would do me if we drove over a roadside bomb I'm not sure)

    Do i detect sarcasm?

    Money's no good if you're dead, and you stand a higher chance of being that if you're in a war zone.
