Halliburton

Campaign of the Month: National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee (NWTRCC)

“What would you do if someone came to your door with a cup in hand asking for a contribution to help buy guns to kill a group of people they didn't like?”
— Wally Nelson

Wally Nelson was a resister during World War II, one of many U.S. pacifists who not only refused to kill but didn’t want to pay for it either. In 1942, Ernest Bromley refused to buy a “defense tax stamp” for his car because the money went to the war, and the U.S. government took him to court. He spent 60 days in jail for refusing $7.09 for stamps and a $25 fine imposed by the court.

Private contractors and sexual assault in Iraq

Lisa Cullen

A mother of five who says she was sexually harassed and assaulted while working for Halliburton/KBR in Iraq is headed for a secretive arbitration process rather than being able to present her case in open court.
What it means: instead of having her case heard in court like a normal American citizen, Barker will have it dealt with in behind-the-scenes, private arbitration.

I am genuinely torn as to what to expect. If Obama follows through on his positive programs, life will be much more difficult for military contractors.

La pratique répugnante des vases communicants

Quels sont les vrais bénéficiaires de la guerre ?

Les profiteurs de guerre dépendent essentiellement de contrats gouvernementaux. Que serait Lockheed Martin sans ses contrats avec le Pentagone ?

En même temps, les gouvernements ont besoin d'excuses pour dépenser de telles sommes d'où la « guerre au terrorisme », la « sécurité nationale », les « forces de pacification » etc.

The Pentagon halts Halliburton's exclusive Iraq deal


The Pentagon has taken an important first step by canceling the contract for Halliburton 's military logistics contract in Iraq and putting it up for open bid. Halliburton has only itself to blame for shoddy management, over-charging and thumbing its nose at military investigators.
