    Interesting.

    My vote is for no.

    We need to keep our military responding directly to our elected officials. The needs of Fiat Chrysler or whoever and those of our government do not always align.

    Not to mention the idea of "our" mercenaries being hired out by other people.

    In the case you mentioned with the Navy sending more people than needed there are a couple things to be taken into account.

    - Those folks in the Navy are getting paid anyways. If you want a smaller military that is another debate. I'm content with our spending levels.

    - The admiral sending an overwhelming force is generally a great way to make sure something gets done.

    If the military is wasting money, hold them accountable by all means but I dunno about the army of Fiat Corp.
