    From Friday's Army Times, alarming news.. we now have a paramilitary force in Iraq, now we will have one here.. more contracts for the fat cats, blackwater got an invite... very concerned over the tendency to allow new gov't funded armies to emerge under the guise of either terrorism or narcotics. In reality narcoterrorism as well as public safety is the an exclusive venue of the government, to do this will only create more problems as these contracts just seem to balloon and there will be no oversight creating more problems.

    The U.S. Defense Department has invited five contractors to bid on elements of a new, multibillion dollar effort to combat the global flow of illegal drugs allegedly used to finance terrorism.

    Awarded by the Pentagon’s Counter-Narcoterrorism Technology Program Office in Dahlgren, Va., the contract vehicle has a potential value of $15 billion over five years. One participant is ARINC, a Maryland-based provider of airline communications systems.

    “This gives us the opportunity to bid on this work,” said Linda Hartwig, an ARINC spokesperson. “We don’t have a lot of details yet, but we do know that this is an expansion of what [the U.S] is already doing to fight drug trafficking, and that 80 percent of the work will be overseas.”

    Hartwig said the other participating vendors are defense giants Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and Raytheon, and security contractor Blackwater USA. Blackwater confirmed its participation, but the other vendors did not respond to inquiries.

    What a joke, do these fools think they are going to stop todays society from using drugs, this is just more money for the High Class Crooks, the crooked cop, the crooked lawyer, the DEA, the crooked judges, the crooked DA's.

    The Baggy Pant Scummy Drug Dealer and the Kids in the school yards that work for him are laughing their a$ses off at stuff like this.

    It's Prohibition all over again only worse.

    The American People love their drugs, the American People demand their drugs and there will always be somebody there to provide them with their drugs.

    LEGALIZE ALL DRUGS THEN CONTROL IT THE SAME WAY BOOZE IS CONTROLED PUT THE SMELLY GANG BANGER DEALER OUT OF BUSINESS.

    It would be hard to tax them, that's why they are not legal :bricks:

    Do you believe that? You think that's why drugs are illegal? Not just pot and heroine, but cheaper foreign drugs that are locked out of the US. Now, a legal form of heroin is being sold through the street pushers called "doctors" in the form of Oxycontin. Try checking out the money pharmaceudicals spent on political lobbies:

    But if they were legal probably would be cheaper, even after taxes..
