Privatizing USAF

Before I begin this article I want to thank my Easy Brother for taking the time to make a comment. Also it looks like he is in costume for Halloween and he hasn't entered my pop gun contest, for any Easy Officer who wins the contest I will donate the 5 Gold to Easy Company. Now on with the show....

'Privatising USAF would lead to its loss of a budget line, as its budget line is to fund a government-held MU to fight strictly on government orders. It is a major FA tool and makes damage direction easier. If you were to split USAF off and still fund it, then either they're still government owned, or we're paying for an MU that has nothing to offer and doesn't follow orders. There is no reason to sever USAF, nor should it seek independence.'

As I stated I believe the Military should be a check against an Executive -which BTW includes Congress- that changes every 30 days, one of the reasons for privatizing the United States Armed Forces is that blind obedience to Presidential Orders; the USAF can not be effective if every 30 days orders change. It is because of that blind obedience we were drug into a war with Canada, a war IMO most citizens did not want; though I applaud the fact that the soldiers of the USAF obeyed orders -they were badly misused by their government. That is why I favor privatization, since private donations are impossible to halt and currently equals government funding they are in essence a PMU; so why continue to fund an MU you feel 'has nothing to offer ' as a PMU -who without said funding would most likely be the equal of SHIELD? No insult intended towards my SHIELD Brothers.

Easy Company Militia is a far better Foreign Affairs tool than the USAF and we are private closed community, not under the command of the President and completely loyal to America. A military unit is only a good Foreign Affairs tool if they are feared, who do you think foreign armies fear more; the USAF or Easy Company? During the Canadian War I followed Easy Daily Orders and while I DO NOT speak for the Command Officers of Easy Company, as I followed those orders; as a soldier I felt that Easy stayed loyal to America -not necessarily to the President.

'While EZC's unique system works for EZC, it is extremely expensive and supplies are far from the best. EZC works because of an internal brotherhood that has been shown to be nigh-impossible to develop elsewhere. EZC is also a closed MU with a controlled and stable population, and many loyal, long-term members. SHIELD tries to be a bit like EZC, but I don't have enough experience dealing with them to say more.'

I totally agree that Easy Company is a unique closed community, a closed community of well disciplined soldiers; which is very expensive to run and worth every CC. Can Easy's way of life be taught, no; but everyday I see new soldiers who want to learn it signing up with the Best. For the ordinary soldier most MUs have a set limit of Weapons and Wellness per day, believe the USAF uses an IRC request system with a two request maximum; seems to me most of the expense would come from supplying tanks with extra rations -which is as it should be. The Department of Interior, the new Census Bureau and Bank Up 2 Strengthen Up are all 'departments' of the government, yet each and every one is run by private donations and are unique to 'in game' life; the WTP's 'Whalefare Program' is just getting off the ground and strives to be the top supplier to those in need and is also supported by 'Private Donations' -why?

Privatization works, government oversight doesn't....anyone remember Operation Retread?

'The American University is a program that has been revived and dropped quietly over and over, killed because there is next to no demand. New players do not care and do not want to get involved for whatever reason. BU2SU is an Interior program, and those running it have consistently rejected any offers to fund them as a budget line, as receiving government money means accountability and the chance of audit.'

Bank Up 2 Strengthen Up was an excellent revenue stream for me in upgrading my Training Centers, between my work for an Easy Commune and them I quickly got them topped up and buying Training Contracts; now my Super Soldiers provide a steady stream of gold. Again I must agree that -so far- every incarnation of a University has failed; also trying to recruit new citizens seems to fail every time yet we keep trying; IMO the problem with all of them is the time commitment they take and the lack of a substantial curriculum that covers anything other than rudimentary game mechanic rules -plus a lack of any real government support.  


'Fighting against Canada had a very good reason: They opened up another border for Serbia and welcomed our greatest enemy in. Now they're fending off Serb PTOers and nobody talks about their MPP. The campaign originally did have to happen, but we did not need to drag it on as long as we did. Canada has a history of completely fucking retarded FA and inability to keep its word, and both sides made errors of judgement, so that whole thing became a mess.'

Sadly I must agree with most of this. Canada allying with Serbia has to be their biggest blunder in recent memory, so yes the campaign did have to take place; leaving a unprotected border open to Serbia was unthinkable. IMO the reason that campaign got out of hand is more about 'errors in judgement' due to some in government needing to teach a lesson; if I remember right DMV3 -an exiled American- was Canadian President at the time. Allying with Serbia was short sighted and done for the same reasons the war drug on, so IMO they brought the Political Take Over citizens on themselves; sadly because of that America is still threatened by Serbia and her allies.

'The eUS Mil has repeatedly shown itself to be unreliable and in many case its members actively fight against the eUS and its allies, some even bragging about it on their feeds. You might be sheltered from this, but it happens, and it's frustrating as hell. I like Largo, don't think this is a statement about Largo, but his fighters have no loyalty to this country. If you're asking that we make USAF more like this, fuck off.'

First I must say that if the eUS Soldiers fight against America or our allies, then they should be viewed with suspicion; there are ways to express opposition to the government without fighting against America.  I mentioned the eUS Military simply because they are a Top 5 military unit and they are private, while I agree that they are undisciplined and disorganized they were once funded by the government and highly valued as such; are they a good example of a PMU? Hell, no. A PMU also in the Top 5 is SHIELD and one IMO that is a good example of a young PMU, similar in many ways to Easy Company they try hard to emulate the best; although they -like Easy Company- would not take it I would love to see them get funding .

'ST6 isn't what it used to be and is losing long-time members to other MU's or simply quitting, and if you talked to some of them you'd learn that it's not all green grass and sunshine over there. EZC is an exception and an oddity, not the rule. I love EZC, but it has been tried and we cannot spread EZC's ways--other communities just don't work the same way.'

Seal Team 6 is also an old PMU in the Top 5 that has seen better days, they were also at one time funded by the government; beside where is it ever green grass and sunshine anywhere? It is time America begin to consider the units in the Top 5, maybe USAF's line budget needs to be used to drive the disloyal units out of the Top 5; much like parties are used to drive out disloyal parties -after all it is loyalty that is the key component to what makes Easy Company work. Maybe these units are past their prime, pretty sure with some support ST6 could be brought back from the brink; after all it is the strength of all the Top 5 units that makes America strong.
