    They've always been able to dole out their services to anyone that bought them.

    Look at Sidewinder missiles from Philco.

    They're there for oil contracts supposedly. And being in the "middle" of everything is key.

    Smart Move Halliburton.



    (I don't support halliburton, but this is a gutsy move).

    It couldn't possibly be because of the criminal investigation into Halliburton...

    Couldn't possibly be because Dubai has no extradition treaty with the US...

    Naah, not at all.

    "If you stay in the US, we'll hunt you down for doing shit without proving that you've actually done it"
    "The protesters will line up at the front door every morning, threatening the lives of your employees"
    "You'll be threatened by thousands of sources"
    "We'll take you to court for conducting business in a way that scares us"

    or..


    "Come to Dubai, we'll give you anything you want. Ships, airports, freighters, employees, utilities, satellite grids, fleets. Anything you want."


    hmmmmmm

    Huh? Halliburton doesn't make missiles... plus my company makes the best missile interceptors. ;)

    Sony makes Missiles. Motorola makes (most of) missiles. All sorts of company have military production contracts.

    Yeah, and they're three times as expensive as Nintendo's, generate about ten times the heat and only bomb about 6% of countries out there.

    But you can connect your Missile Portable (TM) to it via WiFi and download trajectory info (when the site works).

    Theirs have text messaging and play mp3's as they strike!
