Re: "What new terms can we use to describe these
military-industrial-entertainment clusters?  We need a way to hold warfare
and business together as part of one mechanism, rather than analyzing each
separately."

I can think of at least two that are currently in circulation:

1) James Der Derian's rather awkward
'Military-Industrial-Media-Entertainment Network' (MIME-NET) in his
_Virtuous War: Mapping the Military-Industrial-Media-Entertainment Network_
(Westview Press, 2001)

and 

2) Paul Virilio's a) 'Military-Scientific Complex' and b) 'Pentagon
Capitalism', both to be found in his _Strategy of Deception_ (Verso, 2000).

I realize that is actually 3 terms to describe the phenomenon you are trying
to identify! No doubt there are others out there too??

Best wishes

John
