Don’t Expect Our Troops To Come Home From Iraq Any Time Soon

Burried on page C6 of today’s LA Times Business section was this little item:

IN BRIEF / DEFENSE

Fluor, Dyncorp, KBR win contract

From Times Wire Services

June 29, 2007

Irvine-based Fluor Corp., Dyncorp International Inc. and KBR Inc., a former unit of Halliburton Co., were awarded parts of a U.S. Army contract with a combined potential value of as much as $150 billion to provide services to the military in the Middle East.

The contract, the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program (LOGCAP) IV, would be worth as much as $5 billion a year in business for each of the companies, with the potential duration of 10 years.

The Army said the contract was parceled out to three companies rather than just one to “more effectively manage the number and scope of LOGCAP actions required to fight the global war on terror.”

So, basically, it looks like the Army is making plans to be in the “Middle East” for another 10 years.
