    bad idea to become dependent upon others for your defense. foreigners and mercenaries should be used only in aggressive, forward leaning policy options.

    not that I have a problem with that. if we want to create safe zones (say) in Sudan for refugees to flee too, in Somalia for people to come get food without facing the warlords, or enable an anti-slavery unit to operate in central africa; but don't want to put our own people in harms' way, I see no issue contracting that job out to those whom the body politic cares less about.

    Yes, that's true. My understanding is that, after 5 year in the FFL someone can get a French passport, but I don't know if that's the same thing as making them citizens.

    Guys,

    the Word need a strong America, otherwise it will be havoc and destruction, maybe a WWIII or something else. It is better if many unemployed East European soldiers fight for the U.S. instead for Qaddafi or other morons in the Third World. And the U.S. gummnit will have fewer problems to sent the troops.
