    Considering that we needed a faux War on Terror to even have the conversation, and to spend trillions to avenge Daddy's honor in Iraq, I'm going with "no" in this one.

      everyone seems to think I was being serious.

      It just seems like a one-sided approach to the problem of mercenaries.  Something a little more comprehensive that provides additional troops to take their place would be more to my liking.

      Like this:  Enlist in a new special branch of the armed services.  No traditional combat ever.  This branch will perform the duties currently being outsourced to mercenaries, like security detail, etc.. I bet you there would be a lot of enlistees.
