A US War Profiteer tells his broker:Sell,Sell,Sell!

The 27,000 US dead and wounded soldiers in the Iraq War and the 351 Billion dollars spent along with all the American blood has been calculated by accounting firm Arthur Anderson to amount to about $13,000 per body.

When Wall street saw these numbers there was a race on to deinvest from war profiteering.

Halliburton Investments, world expert at making money on human misery, reports that when the human suffering to investment dollars index reaches this kind of imbalance you better bail out and wait for the next war.

Halliburton investment adviser, Richie Bloodletter, explained: "We war profiteers learned as far back as the Civil War, not in Iraq but in the former United States, that once the bloodletting exceeds a certain dead-wounded dollar ratio you exit stage left and bury your cash till the next big war-biz opportunity. . ."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
