Iran and Iraq: family hold back, guys

I see that one of George and Dick's favourite oil companies, Halliburton, is pulling out of Iran , and that they (Halliburton, not G&D) are to be investigated for screwing the Pentagon in Iraq. Two thoughts spring to mind. One, is Halliburton being told something we're not about an attack on Iran? Two, have Dubya's paymasters stuck their snouts in the Iraqi trough once too often? Could Halliburton be Dubya's Iran-Contra? Meanwhile, the payoff for all the CIA's behind-the-scenes armtwisting of Colonel Gaddafi has been revealed, to noone's great surprise. Does anyone still believe that US mid-East policy is NOT about oil?
