    Good old Haliburton. It's nice to have crooks in high places.

    Sweetheart deal for the cronnies.

    And yet people still want to believe that we don't actually have an economic system which can best be described as socialism for the wmonied class and capitalism for the working class.

    How many times do we have to do this? Provide a link please, and do not reproduce articles in entirety.

    Odd, I must have missed Halubrton's name being mentioned.

    I can see where you being able to land your bird in the rear for 3 hots-n-a-cot would make you not appreciate what happens when supplies don't reach the field.

    Or did you ever have to haul your ass in with a load?

    If Army Peocurement didn't want to pay this company due to substandard service then it is encumbent on THEM to replace them in such a manner that supply to the field is not interrupted. Troops in the field are at the mercy of their supplies.

    That of course would be something ANY basic boot-LT would know, Col. Ignoring facts to be a partisan hack. You must be proud.
