(October 2011) Military contractors in Afghanistan get paid more than five times as much as soldiers. (http://www.outsidethebeltway.com/blackwater_mercs_make_more_than_petraeus/ ) A draft would be unpopular, but not enough young men want to volunteer. For five times the money, however, there is no shortage of contractors. Good thing our country has all the money it needs!
