The study tries to find answers to certain questions about the military contractors, including: Why do powerful states like the United States of America decide to use private military forces after centuries of prohibiting them? Does the privatization of war lead to alerting the nature of military operations? If this is true, to what extent does it impact the strategic outputs? What are the results of the privatization of the military forces concerning the international relations? This study casts light on why and how this kind of the armies of military contractors have re-emerged recently.
