Halliburton didn't murder anyone. Any real dirt on Halliburton would have been exposed by Mary Mapes and Dan Rather in a big 60 minutes piece right before the election. Trust me, your "Hot shot" reporters are investigating this and coming up with nothing.

Halliburton employees, however, have been murdered by terrorists in Iraq.

Halliburton produced and sold asbestos products knowing that the products caused cancer. People have died as a direct result. Yes, that is murder.

No, not in a court of law.

Yes, you are correct, not in a court of law. In principal, however, it is still murder and they should be accountable.

I can't comment as I don't know the specifics. I am not familiar with any class action lawsuit against Halliburton. If you have a link to such info, I'll give it a read

You mean liable. Murder is a term of art requiring specific intent.

Decades of litigation are still resolving that issue.


I am sorry for the loss of your father. A good friend of mine died of asbestor cancer as well.

Haliburton is part of, as far as I know, most class action lawsuits regarding asbestos because they were a major manufactuer of asbestos and asbestos related materials. Some Others include: Dow Chemical, Exxon, and Standard Oil. I don't of any links.

thanks to deep for starting this thread and thank you to the others in this thread that have the courage in the current US political climate to speak the truth about one of the most distasteful excuses for a US political figure that I have seen in my lifetime.

With Dick Cheney, the lines between private monopoly capitalist and US vice president have become too blurred - and that is not good for any of us!

The lines are blurred and more so now that the President has an agenda to stop familes who have lost loved ones to asbestos cancer from receiving compensation from these billion dollar companies who have caused people to die. The same companies who became rich on selling the asbestos products. Such as, Haliburton.
