8. Those private contractors like Blackwater are one of the biggest scams ever. So it was

supposed to help free up our military for more important missions. The military used to do most of what they are hired to do, and especially during WWII, which many think was their finest hour.

Those guy cost us a fortune weather it's guarding embassies, hauling supplies or whatever. They charge us enough to pay them big money, house and feed them, plus a nice profit for Eric Prince and other scumbags. That would be bad enough, but they are also luring troops away from our military to take those jobs. So we get to pay for their training, and then to recruit and train guys to replace them.

I can't remember the exact numbers, but they are a relatively small part of the DOD workforce, but a much higher percentage of expenses. That should be the first thing cut from our defense budget if we ever get someone in there that can do it.
