Karzai to Afghan contractors: Join us or leave

How is this suppose to work I wonder. Can it even really be done? Personally I think it'd be great for contractors to be part of the Afghan police. That should free up a lot more of our military to enable them to operate more efficiently in capacity. Afghan police force is already being trained by contractors. So why not? Do YOU think it's a good idea? What are you thoughts?

Afghan president Hamid Karzai has ordered all private security firms in the country to disband within four months to prevent the misuse of weapons that could cause "heart-breaking and tragic incidents".

"I approve the full disbandment of private security companies, both national and international, within four months," Mr Karzai said.

Interesting development, PMCs should join proper army and police forces, I'm interested to see how the Pentagon responds to this... Whose paying for these PMCs, no doubt Afghanistan on massive loans from the US and World Bank etc.
