The Corporate and Military Economics Behind Kosovo

March 26, 1999

NATO aircraft and missiles yesterday blasted targets in Yugoslavia for a second night, directing much of their fire on Kosovo, where fighting raged between Serbs and ethnic Albanians. Western officials said today that the attacks will not stop until Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic agrees to a peace deal with Kosovo.

Today we look at two issues: what weapons companies are benefiting from the bombing, and media coverage of the NATO attacks in Kosovo.
