Quote of the Day

The good Lord didn't see fit to put oil and gas only where there are democratically elected regimes friendly to the United States. Occasionally we have to operate in places where, all things considered, one would not normally choose to go. But, we go where the business is. —Halliburton CEO and future Vice President Richard Cheney in 1998,as quoted by Ken Silverstein

Cheney opposed the Clinton administration's efforts to impose sanctions on Iran. In those days, according to Cheney, the business of Business was oil, not war. Of course nowadays the business of many American businesses is war.
