Halliburton moving HQ to Dubai

    now, we'll be over paying a middle-east based company to rip off wisely use taxpayers' money.

    Maybe there is a reason to get out of Dodge:

    The scandal over treatment of outpatients at Walter Reed Army Medical Center has focused attention on the Army's decision to privatize the facilities support workforce at the hospital, a move commanders say left the building maintenance staff undermanned.

    Some Democratic lawmakers have questioned the decision to hire IAP Worldwide Services, a contractor with connections to the Bush administration and to KBR, a Halliburton subsidiary.

  2. Of course, the war had nothing to do with oil.

    No, absolutely not. War? What war?

    Cheney's probably in some corner doing his "best" Monty Burns impression.

    Oh wait ... that's his USUAL self.

    Isn't Dubai some sort of money orgy? I remember reading something about the insane building going on there. They're trying to be some sort of Muslim Vegas, I think.

    Well, they're paying Tiger Woods $26 million to design a golf course, so draw your own conclusions.

    Just in time for the new administration to arrive in a couple of years; the company's HQ will be out of U.S. jurisdiction and in order to arrest anybody, they'll have to go through an intercontinental extradition process.

    Undoubtedly the tax structure in Dubai is also very very very verrrrrrrrrrry favorable for contract-skimming profiteers.

    Smooth thinking. Maybe Richard Nixon should have resigned and asked for political asylum in Dubai.

    Here's a good article describing Dubai:
  9. Don't forget, Michael Jackson is also seeking refuge there ... so why not Haliburton? ... they both like to screw the innocent ...

    No one has "accused" the Bush administration of doing this. That would be like accusing me of typing this post.

    Love it when the board's dupes keep defending these clowns and their connections.

    Yes, you can learn how to be stupid.
