More $$$ for Halliburton

Guardian: Iraq delays hand Cheney firm $1bn.

According to the article, Halliburton (a company to which US vice-president Dick Cheney was a director) is allowed to make 7% profit. Let’s see – 7% of 1.7bn = 119,000,000 (or 119 million if you don’t want to count all those zeros). Still no WMD. What was this war about again?
