I had a thought the other day, while listening to yet another discussion about the whole Iraq mess. Why not outsource? We outsource damn near everything these days because it's 'cheaper', at least if you don't factor in the quality (or lack of it, when was the last time you've heard of lead paint in toys mad here in the U.S.ofA.?) So how about if we outsource the whole 'war on terror' to some other place? Maybe to some other Muslim country, since they always seem to be fighting each other anyway. This way, the Muslim sects can take out their aggressions on each other (instead of us), and get paid for it. Which would certainly be cheaper in American & Allied lives, and also cheaper than what it's costing in $$$.
So, let's put some effort in looking for the cheapest way of doing this, the same way we look for thecheapest way of doing everything else. Or, speaking of cheaper, perhaps we just offer illegal aliens citizenship if they go to Iraq and fight for 5 (or 100) years. That way, it doesn't cost anything but the price of weapons and the paper to print the certificates for the survivors.
