Cheney's enthusiasm for war

This may be a bit off topic, but prior to the big push for war -at least publicly - there was much speculation on Wall Street that Halliburton may have to declare bankruptcy and consequently Cheney would lose much of his twenty mil golden parachute. It is now known what happened to that corporation after war became a sad reality. There are still some who claim the war was more about the biggest ripoff in the history of this country than it was about politics.
