    Most likely, yes. This is part of our 'all volunteer' military. Also it makes money for political sponsors. Also, not to be minimized, mercenaries are not subject to 'rules of engagement' or the Uniform Code of Military Justice. We don't know where they're fighting, how much 'collateral damage' the do or even how many casualties they suffer.

    No, because having armed people not under military discipline in a war zone is problematic. The enemy can be killed or captured as per the ROE. If your own soldiers go outside the ROE they can be held accountable. Contractors are a whole other category if they are armed.
