Not seen this in UK press yet so here goes. Seems a student was going to miss his thesis deadline as he was hold up with family in an area controlled by ISIS. The professor contacted the universities head of security and he arranged for a team of mercenaries to rescue the student.

Several thoughts, just who did the head of security call, the A Team and who is playing the professor in the Hollywood version, I am going for Meryl Streep with Matt Damon as the steely leader of the mercenaries with Art Malik as the leader of the ISIS group.

Christ on a raft! Where had they hired the Head of Security from? Did he just appear at the door one day smelling faintly of the LA Underground and offer his services?!

He's the sort of person who loves it when a plan comes together

And perhaps has several handy friends who, though flying might be a challenge, can usually achieve anything with a minimum of bodies littering the place.

Knowing the way Sweden has been over run by middle eastern fighting aged males he most likely popped in to a class and asked if anyone knew a few likely lads who were in the area and fancied earning a few bob.
 
this sounds suspiciously like an overly worked excuse* which got out of hand


* in order to gain a deadline extension
 
Wow that really is a film that writes itself, next years War Dogs maybe?

Can you imagine trying the old excuse "the dog ate it"?

The professor would whip out a Bowie knife and disembowel the poor creature just to get it back.
 
Hmmm.
Don't piss off female Viking proffessors or they'll properly get lairy with you.
Is the head of security ex Viking "Them".

The head of security at Lund is certainly one of the boys. He's got some background and relevant experience and I'm sure his contacts list has the appropriate numbers on it.

I'm certain sure I mind some rich IT-company Septic, who I believe also ran for president, arranging something similar to get some of his employees out of Iran. Can anyone fill in the blanks?

I'm sure we could recruit a team of multilingual parachutist free Oirish armed with Dragunovs and Desert Eagles to sort this out.
