HALLIBURTON profits up ****25%****


HOUSTON (Reuters) - Halliburton Co (HAL.N: Quote, Profile, Research), the world's No. 2 oilfield services group, on Sunday posted a 25 percent rise in earnings, beating Wall Street forecasts, on robust spending by producers on oil and gas output, particularly in North America.

The Houston-based company posted third-quarter income from continuing operations of $615 million, or $0.58 a share, compared with income from continuing operations of $492 million, or $0.47 a share, in the third quarter of 2005.

The figures topped analysts' average forecast of 54 cents per share, according to Reuters Estimates.

1. That's what the Iraq war was all about
And W gave them what they expected. Profits beyond belief. They could care less about our casualties, kids hoping to see the world or earn dollars for education. At www.icasuaties.org

3. What have we got for all the taxpayer money the WH has handed them?
That's what I'd like to know. Our troops would like to know, too.

6. I would so like to see Cheney's portfolio since he took over the
Presidency. Let's not fool ourselves he is the one running the Country.
