Rumsfeld wants a leaner, meaner military. Women want equal opportunity and
equal pay. We the people want top results. The neocons want to control the
world. The arms manufacturers want to make more profit. The construction
companies want more work.
All these factors will lead to a smaller, deadlier, mixed-sex military
comprised of highly trained specialists using high-tech equipment,
supported by super high-tech equipment, bolstered more and more with
highly-paid mercenaries moving closer to the action and eventually involved
in fighting, not just training, intelligence and support. I'm in favor of a
move to a mercenary military. The danger will be when the generals decide
to make a power play.
And the beat goes on.
