    damn, imagine my complete and utter surprise [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img] at least this will provide nice symetry - halliburton did business with iraq before the war, and they'll be there after too.

    huh. i thought cheney just wanted to serve our country. i can't believe there was some sort of sleezy payoff

    I hear Red Adair's retired. He's not going to Iraq unless he contracts out with someone as an advisor. Not many oil rig firefighting companies left in Texas nowadays. So someone has to get the call, Halliburton's a huge company, it's evidently a subsidiary that got the contract. Significant amounts of troops are to be used to secure oil fields when the go-ahead is given. Besides Saddam's such a swell guy, I can't imagine him trying to ruin/pollute the environment by igniting his own wells. There's no precedent for him doing such a thing, right?

    Seriously though, I saw a show on CNN about what a wicked job these guys have putting out torched oil wells. Doesn't look like a fun job to me.

    Is anyone else investing to make a bit of money off the war? I picked up some Boots and Coots (isn't that a cool name?) stock. They're Halliburton's partner, and provide response teams to oil well fires. It's still dirt cheap. After the news today that Iraq is wiring up their oil fields, I'm feeling pretty good.
