I barely found any data on any other countries but I guess this will be enough. This is nothin new and is widespread in various countries but only to a few it will be knew,for those who do not know the military's of the world (the U.S.A. in particular) are full of gangs and bigoted nations (ie the "Aryan brotherhood") and from what I know these peoples function on bases no different than they do in the prisons,with various areas taken by various groups.I have heard that the Peoples Nation and the Folks Nation almost had a "mimi-war" over in Iraq. A character I know in the U.S. military once told me that the "Aryan Brotherhood" uses soldiers of color as target practice in the dark if that soldier is alone. I could only find these articles over the net that deal with what I am "talkin" bout even though these articles deal with the U.S.A. only. This is somethin to read. Racism in the ranks http://mediafilter.org/caq/CAQ57Racism.html This article from the Chicago Sun-Times has faults and is suspect for validity like anything else from the media. http://www.suntimes.com/output/news/cst-nws-gangs01.html for example: I am not sure about the Latin Kings, but I personally know quite a few GD's and VL's that tell me originally these "gangs" were community organizations made to help there respective areas(similiar to the Black Panther party's food programs amongst other things) and they became violent when the government got involved.
