    haliburton is a great representation of america's corporatism, pure evil. i can't wait for wikileaks to start dropping stuff on banks and other similar businesses next year. the fallout will be amazing to watch.

    So provide us a link to that arrest warrant for Cheney from Interpol? Can't find one? So you start another thread. Figures. Where is the main stream press reports. None for the supposed arrest warrant and none for this agreement to pay fines.

    By the way? Companies agree to pay fines and bribes because it is cost effective. Cheaper then the alternative. Even Governments do it.

    It's interesting how we place Western values on non-Western countries. What we call corruption, they see as 'doing business'. Perhaps we should learn that not everyone sees things the way we do. Just an idea.
