How can we bring troops home from Iraq faster? Apparently, we just need to send them all porn, because that will get them kicked out of the country. Seems like an unusual strategy, but it’s just crazy enough to work. (bostonmagazine.com)

It sucks that this guy got fired because of porn, but it’s important to note that he is not in the military. He’s effectively a mercenary. He didn’t get discharged, he got fired. He didn’t want to leave Iraq, he wanted to go back. And he probably wanted to go back because these “contractors” make six figures — as much as a flag officer — even at the most basic levels. A highly paid one (which this guy probably was not) can make easily twice as much as the highest paid officer in the US military — more than General David Petraeus, commander of US Central Command.
