Well, if Retired Brig. Gen. Kevin Ryan of the US Armed Services is to be believed, this can come true.
I often think of those phone calls now as I consider the efforts our nation makes to find and recruit quality men and women into the service. Is there an opportunity out there beyond our borders that we ought to explore while recruiting the best and brightest to our nation’s defense?
I would like to make the case that there is, and it could benefit our nation in a number of ways. [ link ]
India has become the Back Office of the World. Anything that is expensive to get done in the US, is sent to India where we can do it for cheaper and usually better !!!
So why not “soldiering” ??
Most wars that America is fighting are overseas. They get into areas and countries they have no need to be and no business either. Hence, wouldnt it be better for them to order a battalion of soldiers to be delivered to …for example…Sadr City, Iraq.
They could lay down guidelines and manuals about how the soldiers shall be trained. They could lay down procedural guidelines for everything from how a soldier will dress to how he will conduct himself in the field and to how he will shoot any Pakistani soldier, whether the US is at war with Pakistan or not. OK, u get the point.
On the cessation of hostilities, the soldiers are given a firm handshake and they go back to their country, aka India.
So now, if you are walking around Fountain or on Linking Road, and see a white dude in an army uniform, dont think that he is some crazy imposter. He is the US Army and he is out to recruit you. (To familiarize yourself of this scenario, please watch Fahrenheit 9/11.)
