Halliburton moving corporate headquaters to Dubai

Halliburton moving corporate headquaters to Dubai.

OMG. Please tell me that this means we can no longer contract defense stuff out to them. Because remember how we wouldn't let a Dubai company manage our ports? Well, this is way more vital to national security. So surely this means the end of Halliburton's rule over our foreign policy.

Whew, at first I thought this was bad news, but that logical train has relieved my concerns. Um, thanks, jaylake; you've helped me trust my government so much more.
