Outsourcing War?

From via Poe News:
Private contractors replacing troops in Iraq, Afghanistan
“If you thought the end of American intervention in foreign wars was nearing, think again. President Obama has been replacing soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan with private contractors—some 250,000 are currently deployed overseas—including Black Water (operating under another alias.)

Contractors are not subject to the same guidelines as our soldiers, and thus, have not been held accountable for the misdeeds they have afflicted upon civilian populations in the past.”

There’s a short video that follows the story.

“Support our private contractors” doesn’t have the same ring as “Support our troops” does it?
