I thought that all of the contracts in Iraq were going to be US contractors. Rumor has it that Dubia is tax free, maybe Haliburton is trying to escape US justice for all of the $ that they over charged the US. I hope they will bring Bush & Cheney with them. Heres my prediction - Haliburton will now try to take over the US ports that Dubia Ports were barred from doing a few months ago., its all a shell game.

Halliburton is just one of many examples of the corruption in this war.

Do we have to defend Halliburton in Dubia, while they make themselves easy pickings for Bin Laden types? Obviously they don't like to pay taxes, so if they are hit there, is it the U.S.' problem?

Do a google search on "G.H.Bush binLadin" see that the dirty money trail goes back to WWII with a scumbag named Prescott Bush, dirty deals with NAZI money. Unreal how long we have let these scumbags rob us blind, making millions & denying millions of US citizens a living wage, they poo poo us us as if we are peasants. Americans "shut off your TV and make some damn noise" email elected officials and tell the they are done, we want our country back, we have no royalty here.

I know all about Prescott and the Nazi Party, I aslo know that Bush 41 proped Bin- letgo as a resistance leader of the Soviet occupation when he ran the CIA, And lets not forget that the 5 deferment coward Dicky was selling chemicals to Saddam theugh Halliburton Italian Subsidiaries when he was the CEO. Dummy Rumsfeld also trade with Bin-Setfree and Saddam using the same smoke and mirrors. BUT CLINTON GOT A BLOW JOB
so that make this bunch of theives better cause they did get caught with their pants down.

Before Cheney took over Haliburton it paid $300 million a year in taxes. His first year the irs PAID them $70 million!! WTF? Check the yahoo story about about coporate tax deferments are what really costs the taxpayers. THESE guys are the REAL "tax cheats" the IRS should be pissing about but Cheney gets to deal with nations like Iran through Haliburton's subsidiary even though Iran is a terrorist state and he STILL gets to send other people's kids to die while he got to take all those defferments during Vietnam. I admire your sentiment but you overlook one important fact about Cheney: When he is willing to place us soldiers in harm's way to guard his trucks so he doesn't have to pay for security do you really think he's ever going to set foot in Dubai?The man is a weasel!But put the blame on the ignorant inbread bible belt who let Bush work themselves up in a frenzy over gay people wishing to put themselves through the living hell of marriage. These are the "christians" who did this to us!
