During the George W Bush years, American war fighting has been privatized and the Pentagon largely turned over to corporate contractors, hired guns, hired hands, private cubicle mercenaries and private sub-contracting warriors, who raked in US$151 billion in 2006. What’s left is “a Pentagon bloated almost beyond recognition and crippled by its dependence on private military corporations”. – Frida Berrigan
