IRAQIS JOINING INSURGENCY LESS FOR CAUSE THAN FOR CASH

Interesting and thoughtful piece from washington Post discussing relationship between Iraqi insurgency recruitment and funding problems and relating them to a number of specific “organised crime” activities. Article warns that the source is flawed and that there is a propaganda element to the account. It does fit with some of Tupman’s arguments about the effect of financing problems on terrorism, the need to resort to organised crime and the consequences of resorting to organised crime methods for a violence-using political movement.
