      This is all well and good but the reason the US military does so many things that the writer (and many others) would prefer to be done by the private sector or other public entities is that few other organizations have the capacity. H/t to Rosa Brooks for eloquently making this point (How Everything Became War and the Military Became Everything) and proposing how we might begin to change that.
