Get with the program!
If American mercenaries were to act outside of our country's interests and without our country's authority, should our country be punished?

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.
