    As long as bombs are being dropped and guns are being fired, the government is going is going to need to give money to the M-I-C for replacements. Easier to get Congress to borrow and spend money on new weapons such as drones and armored vehicles when requests are backed by battlefield need in a hot war. Now that the U.S. has stepped up its use of mercenaries, the M-I-C has another mouth that must be fed.

    The point of war is to keep the war going and the money flowing into the coffers of the M-I-C.
