<nettime> Army of Charities Prepares Ground Invasion

(((Bruce Sterling remarks:  Look at all those Yankee Christian NGOs winding
up the relief machinery to go out and succour those  Albanian Moslems.  What
a strange, polyvalent world we have in 1999.  Now that we in USA have
Milosevic as our turn-of-the-century premier villain, we may have a quiet,
collateral, diplomatic thaw with more traditional enemies -- for instance,
Iran.  Maybe even Cuba!)))
