George W. Bush was founder and CEO of the Bush Exploration Oil & Gas Company from 1975 - 1986.

Dick Cheney was chairman and CEO of Halliburton from 1995 - 2000.

On November 19, 2001 Halliburton announced that it had been awarded a contract for the engineering, procurement, and construction of an ethylene plant for Jubail United Petrochemical Company, a wholly owned company of Saudi Basic Industries Corporation. The facility will be contructed in the Jubail Industrial City of the kingdom of Saudi Arabia with completion expected by July 2004. When the complex is completed, Jubail United Petrochemical Company is expected to greatly contribute to Saudi Arabia's economy as one of the major producers of petro chemicals.

The key players are Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (Riyadh, Saudi Arabia); Mitsubishi Corporation (Tokyo, Japan); Chiyoda (1948).

Halliburton, Dallas, Texas is an international, technology-based engineering and construction company that provides a full spectrum of industry-leading services for public infrastructure and to the hydrocarbon, chemical, energy, and forest products industries. Halliburton, founded in 1919, is the world's largest provider of products and services to the petroleum and energy industries.

Let's tie all this information together and lead it straight into the following...

According to the Financial Times of London, between September 1998 and winter of 2000, Cheney, as CEO of Halliburton, oversaw $23.8 million of business contracts for the sale of oil-industry equipment and services to Iraq through two of its subsidiaries, Dresser Rand and Ingersoll-Dresser Pump, which helped rebuild Iraq's war-damaged petroleum-production infrastructure.

Furthermore, the article reads: Halliburton was among more than a dozen American firms that supplied Iraq's petroleum industry with space parts and retooled its oil rigs when United Nations sanctions were eased in 1998. Cheney's company utilized subsidiaries in France, Italy, Germany and Austria so as not to draw undue attention to controversial business arrangements that might embarrass Washington and jeopordize lucrative ties to Iraq, which will pump $24 billion of petrol under the United Nations-administered oil-for-food program. Assisted by Halliburton, Saddam Hussein's government will earn another $1 billion by illegally exporting oil through black-market channels. With Cheney at the helm since 1995, Halliburton is the 5th largest military contractor. State Department documents indicate that United States officials helped Halliburton secure major contracts in Asia and Africa.




Need I say more where Bush and Cheney's true interests lie. We live in such a fascist-globalist country. America's tail (of the ship) is quite high up in the air.

I am sure Bush and Cheney has a few more dandy complications to draw the American people into. Meanwhile, take a deep breath, pinch your nose and hope for the best.

Thanks for your time, Edward

Edward, the American people as well as the rest of the industrialized world are spoiled rotten suckers. And yes, the conflicts of interest are staggering. If the corporate media actually did what it was supposed to do, these guys would never have gotten near power. It's sad. But true.
