private enterprise providing bodies for cause who does this profit?
n.b. As has been seen in Eritrea and Somalia, the persistence of a war, the subsequent escalation of arms supplies to a region, leads to local groupsestablishing their own power bases, baronial lands. In Ukraine’s Soledar, the Wagner group is cutting out a piece of territory for itself, one that has been smashed beyond recognitionabove ground.
Why is this pointless slaughter, using the ultimate sacrifice of those who are in effect employees, being pursued for land that is rapidly becoming uninhabitable? Some say for what lies beneath, mineral wealth, for private expropriation.
It is also suggested that up to 25% of the military forces assaulting Ukraine are now comprised of mercenaries.This makes the war increasingly a commercial enterprise, one of the people of Ukraine versus capital.
Furthermore, for all the alleged negative impacts of the waron other national economies, those making the weaponry are cashing in big time. This is not just Iran and North Korea selling arms to Moscow, but every business selling its products to help Ukraine defend itself. Patriot weapons systems are bought from the profit oriented manufacturers, not just given away by the USA government from a magic vault.
