Right-wingers are quick to suggest "privitization" as a solve-all to every government shortcoming.
Why not apply that "solution" to our quagmire in Iraq?
We could privitize the reconstruction by giving the job to US contractors. To solve the problem of ever-increasing US military dead and wounded, we could privitize by hiring mercenaries (just call them "private security" to avoid the "mercenary" stigma). Then the only thing left would be to hire American oil companies to pump the oil out the the ground and sell it for incredible profits.
