5. This is pathetic:
From the article:
Halliburton said its Cayman Islands subsidiary, Halliburton Products & Services Limited, has its headquarters in Dubai and is active only in Iran, where it provides a range of services to the state-run Iranian National Oil Company (NIOC).

Members of Lautenberg's staff said his office has passed to the Treasury Department some documents that had been sent by NIOC's British arm, Kala, to Halliburton's subsidiary in 1997 and 1998 seeking bids for oil services work in Iran.

In addition to that subsidiary, Halliburton has three British-based units and a Swedish-based unit that conduct business with Iran, the company said.

6. So we should invade every nation that might have Haliburton records
that show f'u has been involved in crooked acts and dirty dealings?
Are they setting a pattern for everyone, but it is so obvious, no one sees it?
