Halliburton war profiteers

Far be from me to interfer in American politics or foreign policy, but this was too disgusting to ignore. So in an unprecedented move I veer away from web development, scuba diving and more personal ventures to draw attention to this banned excerpt from the video on war profiteering Republicans don’t want you to see….. Its progressive film director Robert Greenwald is scheduled to testify at a hearing on Thursday, May 10 about war profiteering, and had hoped to show this film at the hearing. It has been blocked by the republicans in the land famous for freedom, liberty and…yadda yadda! Go figure. Shit now I’m starting to sound like one of them. [note: this is humour and I am not intending to come across as racist in anyway or incite hatred of Americans , republicans or anyone else for that matter. But it does stink!]

Not sure how spreading this is going to stop it happening, what with corruption being rife the world over, and those involved being very unlikely to change seeing as they have so much to gain…but anyway here it is, watch it, get annoyed, think what you can do to rebalance the scales, so to speak and get to it. Find out more about the film and maybe do something to help if you can

I’m I to conclude from your comment that you are sidding with the republicans and think Halliburton’s dealings in Iraq are ethical?

Nope. I always*follow the money* to see what is the motivation or person/s behind something. That’s all.

Two party system my a$$ they all work for the same people.

Halliburton is only one part of a much bigger, even more sickening story Dave. Read up on Blackwater USA. Read up on the $9 billion of US cash that’s “went missing” in Iraq ( see C4 Dispatches – Iraqs missing billions ).
