This book is produced with the confidence that it will help to arm a new generation of anti-war militants who will surely emerge as the full implications of this pernicious policy sink in. All the king’s horses and all the king’s men can’t control every aspect of life in Bosnia—even though these outside forces take charge of the parliamentary elections and physically seize radio and TV stations.

The occupation of Bosnia by U.S.-led NATO forces takes its toll not only on the peoples who are subjugated militarily. It also exacts a silent price here in the U.S. The Pentagon is soaking up every available dollar that could feed or heal or educate or provide employment. And with every dollar it absorbs, this military monstrosity grows ever more powerful, arrogant, and aggressive.

This is the danger inherent in the military-industrial complex. Its goal is to control the destiny of the planet—militarily, politically, and economically. It is driven by a ravenous appetite for profits.
