An important indicator of how we are moving from a nation-state to a market-state:  our defense department is now run like a corporation.  The all volunteer army was the first step.  Outsourcing of tasks to private corporations was the second.  Estimates are that upwards of 30% of all sanctioned defense activities in Iraq are outsourced — compare this to 1% in the first gulf war.  [John Robb's Weblog]
