Army Says It Will Withhold $19.6 Million From Halliburton, Citing Potential Contract Breach 08 Feb 2007 The Army announced during a House oversight committee hearing on Wednesday that it would withhold $19.6 million from the Halliburton Company after recently discovering that the contractor had hired the company Blackwater USA to provide armed security guards in Iraq, a potential breach of its government contract. The Army has said that its contracts with Halliburton, which has a five-year, $16 billion deal to support American military operations in Iraq, generally barred the company and its subcontractors from using private armed guards.
Is this another reminder of our US sec Mars (military) now Rx?
The recall of troops who have already served may be described by Mars Rx, and delaying a check could be, too.
There's been another explosion inside the Kentucky chem plant today...evacuations continuing.
Sad to hear of Anna Nicole Smith's untimely passing today.
As you know, her son Daniel died Sep 10, 2006 of an unfortunate drug mixture and after looking at Anna Nicole's natal chart (sunrise/solar because birth time unknown--Nov 28, 1967 Houston)--and the charts for her check-in at the Hollywood, FL motel Monday, 2/5/07, 8:00 pm (the only definite time I have)--and at the planets for Sept 10, 2006--it would seem obvious--and astrologically obvious---that grief played a large part in her death along with negative escapism...drugs.
Her natal Chiron 25Pis20 Rx--the Wound--was being transited at Daniel's death by the North Node (NN) 25Pis21 which is connected to mother (NN of the Moon.) Mercury (young person) was opposite and conj tr South Node (SN)--a point of separation.
When Anna Nicole checked into the motel Monday, 8 pm, the Moon 29Vir23 was in first house and rising, and was conj her sec Uranus, planet of separation , disruption, and upsets...in fact there are indications of some emotional upheaval for her which possibly involved her deceased husband's family and some news or info.
As you know, 29 is a critical/crisis degree, and the current charts show deep upset. There may have been some romance on the menu as well...a no-brainer where the former Playboy gal was concerned, I'm sure, but my suspicion is that she was trying to forget the loss of her son--or had given up trying...she had become Niobe, the grieving mother.
Anna Nicole's daughter is a wee 5 months old, and I hope her paternity suit--or situation--can work out well for a little baby girl born just a few days before Daniel's unfortunate death. It's common for deaths to visit families near the time of births but one usually thinks of older family members which is easier to understand, isn't it?
All babies deserve better family circumstances than this little mite has so far received, don't they? My deep condolences to the family.
