Ruckus Society's 'War Profiteers' Playing Cards

The hell-raisers at the Ruckus Society have laid down their cards to reveal a full house of corrupt corporations, villainous U.S. government officials, shady defense contractors, and scandalous heads of industry, finance, and media.

The hell-raisers at the Ruckus Society have laid down their cards to reveal a full house of corrupt corporations, villainous U.S. government officials, shady defense contractors, and scandalous heads of industry, finance, and media. In response to the deck of “Iraq’s Most Wanted” cards the Bush administration has distributed to the U.S. troops, Ruckus created its own deck of cards, available online at www.warprofiteers.com. Each card depicts a war profiteer and describes his or her involvement in the so-called War on Terror. The site allows you to download the full deck of cards in PDF format, or buy a printed one that supports or get a printed one as a premium for donating $10 or more to support the Ruckus Society’s effort to expose “the institutions and individuals that stack the deck against democracy in the rigged game of global power.” You can easily shuffle through an alphabetical listing of 53 of America’s war criminals or click on whichever one suits your fancy to get an in-depth look at different types of profiteers on the loose. In this stack of cards, George W. Bush is no Junior–he’s the Joker.
