blackwater pays almost 200 grand for "security" in Iraq. Its a great gig because it all goes straight to the bank while you are in Iraq. A few years of that and you can get out and live a real good civilian life. Good luck.

Security jobs are high paying. They pay at least $100K and can get up to $250 for former SEALS and SF and the like. High tech jobs and skilled trades also get a lot of money.
