world’s stupidest hit contracts

drone-strike-79225134443US and coalition airstrikes against the Islamic State in Syria have killed nearly 1,200 people ‒ including 52 civilians ‒ and wounded at least 800 others at a cost of more than $1 billion since the bombings began in September.

IF those folks were all enemy soldiers, it would be an outrageously expensive $833,333 per hit.

How much do you suppose it should cost to kill four months’ worth of enemies?

I don’t have an exact figure in mind, but know I could do it for a whole lot less … and I sure as heck wouldn’t be killing so many innocents. Even if I was incredibly sloppy, I couldn’t even come close to the random slaughter The Peace President or his recent predecessors have acheived.

We should privatize the war. Come up with a set of objectives and hire the Maffia to do the job. Even at a genrerous $8,000 per hit, we could cut costs by over 99% and I am sure they wouldn’t be wasting a lot of resources on killing men, women and children who posed no threat to whatsoever the heck it is the rulers are trying to accomplish over there.

That is, unless the objective is to transfer great gobs of money from the Federal Reserve printing presses to the Military Industrial Complex and make the rest of the world hate North Americans.
