Oops, I forgot to add the Halliburton angle to the last post.
Yes, the US leads the world in spending cash for land mine de-mining purposes.
Ken Rutherford said today that there are perhaps as many as 100 million land mines in the world. It costs $300 to $1000 to take out a single mine.
Do the math.
That's $30 to $100 billion that needs to be spent de-mining the world.
Increasingly, private corporate entities are moving into the de-mining business.
Suddenly, the US motives look less humanitarian.
