    saving of taxpayers' money. You might even get support from the (R)aggers© by using that key point (uh-huh...).

    Many of these mercenaries are trained at the expense of we taxpayers (those American veterans hired by BW/XE, etc., a number of them are foreigners--South Afrikanners, etc.). They are paid far more than our military personnel, and there is a very large built-in  overhead expense (profit, etc.) padded into all government contracts with these firms.

    It would be extremely cost-effective to return these outsourced functions back to our capable military.
    Just as it would be very cost-effective to remove the middlemen (health insurance firms) from health care.

    The rooting out of crony-capitalism from our nations' infrastructure would solve our very real economic and financial problems.
