    @Pan-Africa...again. How mant times has Halliburton got caught bribing African leaders. (twice in Nigeria alone...how often and for how long did they get away with it?)

    *Caspian Sea Basin, rather @ 5:08. Home to more than half of the world's proven energy reserves, now owned by the Bush/Bin Laden corporation aka 'Carlyle Group' and sold to China via Afghan pipelines policed by US troops.

    @ Philip, The EU and US are most definitely tops dogs in the BIS and OIL sandbox, so to speak. Very conveinant that the Prez of Kuwait is was the Prez of OPEC at the time isn't? OPEC's new Prez of OPEC also has a nice view of the Caspian Sea Basin along with Iraq.

    "CORPORATE FASCIST REGIME"
    US gov ARE "intrinsically" linked with their own corporations.

    Such as the

    BIS, EU, and the US perhaps ?
