    VP Cheney says he's against terrorism but as CEO of Halliburton he negotiated contracts and does business with every terrorist rogue nations in the world, if this isn’t flip flop I don’t know what is. Bush better dump him at the convention because he also loves gays which the right-wingers are totaly against.

    GOING WHERE THE OIL IS
    During Cheney’s tenure, Halliburton created or continued partnerships with some of the world’s most notorious governments –– in countries such as Azerbaijan, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Libya and Nigeria.
    In order to do business with dictators and despots, Halliburton has skirted U.S. sanctions and made considerable efforts to eliminate those sanctions. Halliburton’s pattern of doing business with U.S. enemies and dictators started before Dick Cheney joined the company, and may well continue after his tenure as CEO.
    Halliburton’s dealings in six countries –– Azerbaijan, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Libya and Nigeria –– show that the company’s willingness to do business where human rights are not respected is a pattern that goes beyond its involvement in Burma:
    • Iraq. Dick Cheney cites multilateral sanctions against Iraq as an example of sanctions he supports. Yet since the war, Halliburton-related companies helped to reconstruct Iraq’s oil industry. In July 2000, the International Herald Tribune reported, “Dresser-Rand and Ingersoll-Dresser Pump Co., joint ventures that Halliburton has sold within the past year, have done work in Iraq on contracts for the reconstruction of Iraq’s oil industry, under the
    United Nations’ Oil for Food Program.” A Halliburton spokesman acknowledged to the Tribune that the Dresser subsidiaries did sell oil-pumping equipment to Iraq via European agents. •
    Libya. Before Cheney’s arrival, Halliburton was deeply involved in Libya, earning $44.7 million there in 1993. After sanctions on Libya were imposed, earnings dropped to $12.4 million in 1994. Halliburton continued doing business in Libya throughout Cheney’s tenure. One Member of Congress accused the company “of undermining American foreign policy to the full extent allowed by law.”
    • Nigeria. Local villagers have accused Halliburton of complicity in the shooting of a protester by Nigeria’s Mobile Police Unit, playing a similar role to Shell and Chevron in the mobilization of this ‘kill and go” unit to protect company property.
    Dick Cheney has been a strong advocate for preventing or eliminating federal laws that place limits on Halliburton’s ability to do business in these countries.
    DICK CHENEY AND USA*ENGAGE
    The strands of Dick Cheney’s business and policy interests come together in his support of a corporate coalition called USA*Engage. The mission of this coalition, with some 50 active companies and 600-plus total members, is to promote business “engagement” and prevent U.S. sanctions for human rights or other kinds of violations. Dick Cheney’s position on sanctions has been virtually identical to that of USA*Engage, and Halliburton has been an active member of USA*Engage and its campaigns against almost all forms of sanctions.
    THE WELFARE KING
    Contrary to his claim that the government “had nothing to do with” his financial enrichment in his private sector stint, Halliburton under Dick Cheney was a major beneficiary of bilateral and multilateral government aid toward fossil fuel industry developments in developing countries and the former countries of the Soviet Union. The company is a contractor on projects that have been financed by some $6 billion in government aid packages since 1992. These packages include loans, credit, guarantees and insurance on projects for which Halliburton has supplied services and equipment.

    The way we build has a greater impact on our comfort, energy consumption and IAQ than any HVAC system we install.
