Pakistan: Military Inc.

A book named Military Inc. appears to have ruffled many feathers. At Individual Counts “All this because she has done an academic case study of the Army’s corporate interests which highlights the welfare work that the khakis are doing for their own admittedly at the cost of the tax payer. The book may be a “pack of lies” or it may not be. Why isn’t an open debate held over it ? “. Metroblogging Islamabad has more on the book “Milbus or the military economy, as the author terms it, is distinct from the defence budget. It does not fall under the ministry of defence and its profits accrue, without any accountability, to some individuals in the top echelon of the army, navy and air force.”
