Hey Dick, Dick Cheney, Mr. USA vice prez, would you like fries with that?
Wow, the states could've at least tried to cover this up or
for goodness sakes wait until they had finished blowing the
crap out of Iraq before milking out blood soaked oil money,
"A division of Halliburton (NYSE: HAL) named Kellogg Brown
& Root (KBR) has been awarded a contract from the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers to work in Iraq. The size of the
contract was not disclosed, but estimates put it near $1
Here is the good part...
"Halliburton is the first of many U.S. corporations that
will surely be asked to help, and profit from, the
rebuilding of Iraq. It is an especially auspicious first
awardee, however, because Dick Cheney was CEO of
Halliburton until 2000. Upon entering the vice president's
office, Cheney divested himself of his holdings, although
he reportedly still receives about $1 million a year in
compensation from the company."

The transparency of Bush and his barrel of monkeys is
becoming painfully obvious. I think this, coupled with
negative american en-war headlines will further sway public
opinion around the world against this ridiculous war.
NO WAR IN IRAQ!
