With the keywords : vacation usa
used in google.com, i noticed adwords from yahoo travel,
directing to yahoo travel search results, why they do this? I mean this is buying traffic from Google?

Not only Yahoo, but AOL are in that result. This is very common, of course-- try a search for "internet advertising" in Yahoo and see who comes up in one of the primo positions.

Hopefully the different search engines will allow this to continue; it's a refreshing taste of free market capitalism that we don't see much in the offline world.

This happens all the time on TV with ads (for example) for cable and cable channels on broadcast TV and other cable channels.
