    "We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."

    Barak Obama

    That'll be one whopper of a police state! But I imagine the elite figure they'll need it after they crash the economy. Gonna be alot of unhappy campers around.

    Don't rightly know for sure but if I had to guess I'd say it'd be another cool sounding euphemism..."enduring vigilance" or something else real he man patriotic sounding so's you'll accept it without question.

    But then this puppets a democrat so you may have questions after all...hope so anyway. ;)

    There are tens of millions of us, probably enough to get him elected in November. :thumbs:

    Hard to believe there are people out there who can't see an Obama presidency as Bush's third term.

    My take it that Bush would agree with him. After all we have more "contractors" in Iraq fighting than we do soldiers.

    For Obamanites the answers to all problems are more government but this one seems wilder than most and needs some serious clarification! What exactly in a civilian national security force?

    So far, I believe Obama has refused to clarify it.

    I'll feel safer just knowing that Homeland Security and the "Federal Vigilance Department" are both on the job. It'll be like having two big brothers looking out for us. How can ya not feel safer?

    I don't think this is correct, and I can't find anything to back up your claim. Are you sure about that ?

    Found this.

    "THE number of US-paid private contractors in Iraq now exceeds that of American combat troops, new figures show, raising fresh questions about the privatisation of the war and the Government's capacity to carry out military and rebuilding campaigns.

    More than 180,000 civilians - American and foreign - are working in Iraq under US contracts, State and Defence Department figures show. Including the recent troop increase, 160,000 American soldiers and several thousand civilian government employees are stationed in Iraq."


    SOURCE...

    And this...

    "The U.S. has outsourced so many war and reconstruction duties that there are almost as many contractors (120,000) as U.S. troops (135,000) in the war zone."

    SOURCE...

    Took a couple minutes.

    Looks like it just may be a maybe.

    I can't give you a link. I was driving the other day, listening to the radio, and that comment was made. I am not sure what station I was listening to, so I do not know what program it was. I was somewhat surprised at the comment. But I do know there are lots of contractors there like Blackwater. I'll see if I can find anything more on this.
