Hussein and the Hessians

Paul Bremer's copping to the fact that we never had enough troops in Iraq, which lead us to the chaos of the present day.

Kerry's fond of saying that 90% of the costs and the casualties are American. Why isn't he harping on the fact that 25% of the costs go to mercenaries who do their job better than our trained armed forces? But as with all things in the private sector, better means cheaper and more efficiently, and in terms of security, that means more brutal methods. That brutality is seen as American, even if it is just some Soldier of Fortune asshole making a quick buck.

It's no wonder that terrorists are targetting kids and aid organizations now. The line between civilian and combatant has never been blurrier.
