A reliable source tells me that RAND has been contracted by the government to come up with a way to avoid instituting a draft, despite the desperate needs for more combat forces.
The solution? Outsource desk and logistics jobs to private companies while pushing those "chairborne" warriors out of their offices into fighting units.

They're desperate over at the Pentagram. Bush shot himself in the foot when he promised not to institute a draft. So, how much are Halliburton et al. going to overcharge us for these services? What, you think they're gonna put the contract up for competitive bids? Yeah right.
