By 2008, the US Department of Defense employed 155,826 private contractors in Iraq—and 152,275 troops. This degree of privatization is unprecedented in modern warfare.” (Afghan War figures were remarkably similar: In 2010, there were 94,413 contractors and 91,600 American troops in that country.)
In Syria DoD deployed 3,500 US troops and estimated 4,000 contractors.
The war in Ukraine is a US and UK war against Russia and it is not credible that, in view of geopolitical supremacy in the area and economic and military dominance over Europe, that the US have not deployed their own contractors.
So not just armaments , military and intelligence assistance, but contractors to fight with the Ukrainians and train them.
It is supposed that US DoD is playing the war in Ukraine  with  more than 7000 contractors.
In Europe US has already achieved enormous results and put the noose around Europe’s neck.
In addition to the military domination with the longa manu called NATO, from now on it will control and manage the European economy with gas, oil and wheat (…GMO forbidden in Europe).
In short, Italy and Europe have castrated themselves.  A very good job  …
