There goes the neighborhood! Halliburton is coming to Dubai.

Dubai should block the move of Halliburton just like the US blocked Dubai Ports World.



If Dubai were a democracy, I suspect that Halliburton's move here wouldn't be possible.

The Dubai Ports World deal was blocked in the name of the War on Terror, despite no direct connection.

Blocking the Halliburton move in opposition to the "War on Iraq" is far more rational.

Virtually nobody over here approves of the Iraq war, so why should we welcome a company that profited highly from it? Many think even instigated it?

We residents of Dubai could also object in the name of homeland security. It seems to me that having Halliburton HQ among us is just inviting an attack.
