"Authorities in the West African nation are probing Halliburton, Saipem and Technip for the alleged payment of $180 million in bribes to win a $6 billion liquefied natural-gas contract," Bala-Gbogbo added. "Panalpina is being investigated for illegal payments it allegedly made to Nigerian customs officials on behalf of Royal Dutch Shell Plc."




So they paid 180 million dollars in bribes to get a contract worth 6 million? 180 to get 6. I've read it ten times now and the math still doesn't add up for me.  If that is actually true they shouldn't arrest these people, they should come up with more contracts that bribery will help get.  Boost the economy and all that!

$180 million is significantly less than six billion

I think the forum wasn't loading right. I don't think we usually post the same thing that many times.

If they do I will throw a nice big party every year in commemoration of the day one of those bastards got theirs.

It'd be a hot fudge sundae sort of party.

I'm not all that hopeful.

That would be too awesome, but yes, I have little hope as well.

The Obama Administration would protect him.  No doubt in my mind.

You can  hide in my stupid-hole.

Am I making you uncomfortable yet?
