Acquisition by Proxy

Via Buzzflash, an interesting set of connected dots:

Today Dubai Ports World announced it would "transfer fully the U.S. operations…to a United States entity." PBS News Hour reporter, Norm Ornstein,said that DP World was considering selling its U.S. operations to Halliburton:

Today is Wednesday, August 30, 2006. Yesterday, in an article I posted, I conceded that I couldn't quite fathom why George Bush tried, some months back, to transfer the American Ports to Dubai ports, in spite of terrorist ties, and sympathies. I pointed out that this attempted change was made during a congressional break, that it during a hiatus while the congressmen were vacationing.
I suggested some kind of profiteering on the part of president Bush.

Today, 24 hours later, we have a report on Public Broadcasting, presented by Norm Ornstein, that the Dubai Ports were possibly going to be bought by Halliburton.

Halliburton is the company which rebuilds Iraq, after American bombs, missiles, and artillery do their damage.

Halliburton also has, or had, plans to build a detention facility, comparable to the one at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, for the holding of suspected terrorists. The Halliburton facility would be in fact larger ...the Guantanamo bay Facility is infamous for holding un-charged suspected terrorists, for allegations of torture, for numerous suicides, and more.

Vice President Dick Chaney is a past executive officer of Halliburton.

Halliburton acquired Dresser Industries in 1998. Here is some interesting info about Dresser industries:

Dresser had been founded by Solomon Dresser in 1880, and taken over in 1928 by W.H. Harriman & Company, the investment bank owned by the descendants of railroad magnate E.H. Harriman, himself a front for the British Royal Family. Under Averell and Roland Harriman, Dresser was a Skull & Bones shop, whose board included Bonesman and presidential father and grandfather Prescott Bush. Both Roland Harriman and Prescott Bush were directors of Union Banking Corp. when it was raided by Federal agents in 1942, under the Trading With the Enemy Act, for its dealings on behalf of Nazi Germany.

This partial quote from a Google link:

"Envision a pseudo-political group whose sole interest is in the manipulation of the economy for it's own interests. Not influenced whatever by legal or moral issues, beyond the need to present an acceptable façade; no concern for social programs, the citizenry, world interests, only, by it's very charter, economic gain.
How much damage could these profiteers do?" -BBJ

This manipulization of the American Armed Forces, non-compliances with American laws, by The Bushs, and Chaneys, to further private economic interests,goes far beyond the scope of "impeachable offenses."

Despite the uproar last winter where Congress "blocked" the takeover, Bu$hCo simply pushed the limited takeover through, letting it occur after the Congressional posturing died down.

So now Cheneyburton will control port security. The better to Operation Northwoods you, my dear.
