Neretva River reports [1] on an American firm recruiting the unemployed in the Balkans “to carry out various jobs assisting the US military in Iraq in fields of work ranging from truck driving to engineering”: “One 22 year old prospective KBR employ noted that his family were praying that he wouldn’t get a job with KBR and wouldn’t get sent to Iraq, but he also made clear the fact that if he remained in Croatia, he had no prospect of finding a job.”
