This war is using a LOT of very expensive "contract security forces" - mercenaries. I've heard that special ops mercs get $2000-$4000 per day - or
maybe that's the trainers, or maybe that's what the security company gets. ...But even contract drivers are pulling down big bucks.
...Does anyone have real figures on this? ...If I was in the services and I knew what these other guys were getting paid, I would be seriously po'd.
Just as a tax payer, I'm steamed about it. Talk about a funnel, and a seive!
