Chip McDonald Posted February 11, 2003 Share Posted February 11, 2003 The following ad has been appearing in the local newspaper here in Augusta Georgia. Hopefully by now everyone knows of the adminstration's connections with Halliburton: -------------------------------------------- [b] Building the future. Powering new ideas.

NO PHONE CALLS PLEASE Equal Opportunity Employer[/b] --------------------------------- It looks like the U.S. is going to pay Halliburton to rebuild Iraq after the U.S. levels it. Why don't we just hand the reins of the government over to Halliburton, or some other obviously competant corporation and just be done with it? We haven't even gone to war yet and here's a company waiting in the wings to make some $$$ off of it. Mechanics for Bradleys and M1's? Why doesn't the Army have those? ATCs? Laundry services? Halliburton acting as a clearinghouse seems..... I mean, geez, the U.S. can't arrange for this infrastructure without giving a present to a corporation? Why can't these be outgrowths of the U.S. government - SINCE IT'S GOING TO BE U.S. TROOPS DOING THE *real* WORK? So surreal. The Vice President's old company is going to make $$$$$$$$$$ to put infrastructure into a country the U.S. is about to demolish, meanwhile the VP's country itself is apparently incapable to being run effectively. Why not just make the Neuraq (tm) infrastructure an outgrowth of the U.S.? Let's get real - it's the U.S. that's footing the bill, fighting the war, the whole thing - WHY pretend otherwise? Unbelievable. Has anyone else seen these ads in their locale?
