The report says the size and scope of the government contracts awarded to Halliburton in connection with the war in Iraq are significantly greater than was previously disclosed.
I know you don't want to believe it, but some people do actually profit from war. Some of the companies whose best interests are served by war were formerly run by the vice president of the United States, a man many feel drives U.S. foreign policy.
Now, I don't want you to think that financial gain would compel such a mighty nation as the United States to war. We all know that the world had to be rid of that despotic Saddam Hussein and his weapons of mass destruction.
Now that he is gone and the weapons are secure, Iraq seems to be a much safer, prosperous country for its grateful inhabitants.
