Privatization of War
I am reading the report of a group funded by the local government in Barcelona about the Privatization of War. In my opinion this report should be required reading by anyone who has in interest in how things actually happen in our world. It is the story of corporations like Halliburton and its many subsidiaries, and other corporations like it. Here you will read not only of how the Iraq war was conducted by mercenaries who were above any law, but how the present-day violence in many countries is being brutally put down by branches of the same companies. Get it. It is free by following this link. (BTW, the report is in English even though the page is in Catalan.)
