Quote of the day

Strategy Page:
The U.S. State Department is organizing a mercenary army to protect American interests in Iraq after U.S. troops have left

The article isn't exactly clear on the definition of American interests. If it's just protecting the embassy and other diplomatic posts, then isn't that what Marines are for? (God bless 'em.) And if it's a broader definition of interests throughout Iraq, then is the State Dept the one to do it? Either way something doesn't sound right.
