    Halliburton? WTF?

    Um, no I'm talking about the contracts Russia and France had with the Hussein Gov't prior to the U.S. invasion.

    You mean the contracts that were signed even though the UN said the Iraqi Gov't was under diplomatic and economic sanctions? Or are you referring to the approved oil-for-food program that was clearly a scam between Saddam and several gov'ts. As you can see those sanctions did not do much good. I am sure the French, the Russians and a host of other nations that was profiting from the sanctions would like to keep lining their pockets with Saddams oil, and Iraqi civilian blood.

    However, I am glad to have the majority of American citizens behind me when I say that Bush junior is not up to the challenge. Sad it took so many so long to find out.
    Before you spout stats you should see what demographics the statistics come from. I can give you a poll that shows 95% of the people polled believe anything you ask me to quote. It all comes down to what you want the poll to say when you develop the questions and the demographics you use. I could have provided you a poll with over 90% agreement with Saddam invading Kuwait during the invasion of Kuwait, just ask the right people.
