The circle of life, Halliburton style

World News Trust - Halliburton Sold Iranian Oil Company Key Nuclear Reactor Components, Sources Say
Scandal-plagued Halliburton -- the oil services company once headed by Vice President Cheney -- sold an Iranian oil development company key components for a nuclear reactor, say Halliburton sources with intimate knowledge into both companies’ business dealings.

Halliburton was secretly working at the time with one of Iran’s top nuclear program officials on natural gas related projects and sold the components in April to the official's oil development company, the sources said.

Just last week, a National Security Council report said Iran was a decade away from acquiring a nuclear bomb. That time frame could arguably have been significantly longer if Halliburton, whose miltary unit just reported a 284 percent increase in its second quarter profits due to its Iraq reconstruction contracts, was not actively providing the Iranian government with the means to build a nuclear weapon.

When we attack Iran for its nuclear weapons program, Halliburton will be there to do their high-priced logistical magic behind the lines and behind the curtain. And once we have leveled their infrastructure, as we did Iraq's, you can be sure that Halliburton will there to profit from undoing the destruction brought on by the fine work they did in provoking the conflict in the first place.
