Could something like Militaires Sans Frontières, Diamond Dogs, Outer Heaven etc...... exist and survive in real life ?

They not like those that Big Boss/Venom Snake created
Those PMCs im talking about are more like nations/countries
>>
>>53559324
I think military junta's also exist/have existed
>>
Short answer is no for the exact same reason MSF got shut down: international/foreign military inspections and sanctions. Even the kind of false flag attack XOF put on isn't that unlikely against a breakaway military force.

>"Big Boss' dream, which involved ending the abuse and exploitation of soldiers by the world's governments"

This is retarded gibberish. How would that even work? You can't just have a nation of soldiers who go to work every day at the war factory.
>>
>>53559412
That's the point of Big Boss's downfall, he misunderstood the Boss' philosophy
>>
>>53559427

Who gives a shit. MGS is better enjoyed when you just accept that it's all gibberish.

Take this for example:

>Big Boss later formed the private military group Militaires Sans Frontières (French for "Soldiers Without Borders"), combining the best aspects of a state army and a special forces unit.

Special forces are usually part of the state army. It's just nonsense.

Kek, it is the main point of MGS2 plot.

Sparta was an absolute shithole that had a borderline non-functional government.

>>53559494

My point is you are asking us to rationalize pure gibberish. It's just a bunch of buzzwords strung together by a Japanese writer.

To have an army, you'd need money, logistics, civilian infrastructure, et fucking cetera. You'd soon find that you need to have all the things a normal country has in order to have an army.

Probably the closest you could get would be Prussia which was described as an "army with a state attached to it", but of course that description was taking some poetic liberties.

Anon you're not even addressing content from the game, what in fuck are you even on about?
Yes the game is fiction and couldn't happen in real life, but you're trying to say the game series has an unintelligible plot and themes which just isn't true, and your argument is pure nonsense and isn't based on anything in the actual games.
MSF and DD were not military states, they were PMCs and were always presented as such in games.

What do you think life is like living on an oil platform run by some double amputee psycho that declares itself a country of kidnapped soldiers.
>>
>>53559554

You mentioned Outer Heaven in the OP
>>
>>53559554
dont bother anon, it's just razorfist shitting up every metal gear thread
>>
>>53559568
DD and MSF had pretty high QoL because of the retrofuturistic tech in MGS's universe starting in about the 1970s. They had their own stable food production, materials sciences, healthcare, etc. Remember, that oil rig also had the scientists responsible for creating Metal Gears and AI on it at one point or another.

How is Venom Snake a psycho or a bad guy ?

It already unironically does. See: Hezbollah
>>
>>53559984
not sure that fits, hezbollah is pretty much the unofficial palestinian army i think?
>>
>>53559984
Wtf are you about
>>
Militaires Sans Salaire :^)
>>
The answer is its possible in theory but unironically the globohomo will do everything in its power to squash any threat to their monopoly on force projection. Rhodesia fell for a similar reason. it's just not feasible to start a new nation and have a formidable military because of the powers that be. It would take a real life big boss tier man that literally dismantles the NWO to do this.

It’s simple power politics anon. If there is a force using actor out there with opposing view to you (another force using actor) you squash them before they do the same to you.
