Agree with his conclusion - removing our military but leaving our contractors behind is perpetuating the war.

Why is this news to anyone? Also why do people actually believe that we are out of Iraq? Or that we will ever leave Iraq? Its Saudi ARAMCO all over again. With "private military contractors" to back them... multinational companies are taking over the natural resources of the Iraqi people.

While we are on the subject, why do we even allow these contractors to exist? Entire armies equipped for war in private hands. Sounds like something from a feudal era.

The only reason these contractors exist is because they are allowed to be more brutal than the US military. Accused of their crimes early in the War, they were not bought up on any charges. They were hired to the US's dirty work and given free reign to do ANYTHING with politicians acting as if they had no power to drag them back or end the their contracts. It was dance a little sidestep about claims of what the regulations were and the reasons the US couldn't do thing to because they were not US military but independent contractors (Want to ask how much these politicians had in these companies???). It was BS then and its still the same.

The USA has made a small town out of mercenaries. ITs disgusting. And if anyone thinks we are droning 5 nations, but leaving Iraq alone, they are insane.

The people of the USA love war.
