Many thanks for posting this! :-)
This guy says it all. So I hope this issue is closed, or soon will be, because this article lays it all out.
Yep, hypocrisy, amazing our spineless senators "step up" to the plate when Dems are behind them, yet would do nothing about theft of US tech by the Chinese & Panama canal sale under Clinton, cowering in fear.
It's them & their false wealths, not Bush, who should be mediaticaly impeached or genocided.
I find it amusing that Ann Coulter slams the Bush admin for the deal because Jimmy Carter, and Bill Clinton approve of it, but that puts her in bed with the likes of Mo Dowd who reflexively churned out one of her tri-weekly I Hate Bush columns and savaged the deal. I don't think Coulter likes the idea of snuggling (metaphorically speaking) under the sheets with the preeminent leftist loony scribe in the country. So what is it Ann?
We are not dimwits for insisting American ports be controlled by Americans. Our lives are at stake.
If we Americans have to suffer the constant humiliation of being treated suspiciously as we pass through the airports of our own country, we have an absolute right to demand American control of our own damn ports.
I don't hear a cry for allowing the United Arab Emirates to screen passengers at U.S. airports.
This "big happy world" crap of all people of the world just sitting around the campfire singing Kum-Bay-Yah is responsible for getting a lot of Americans killed.
This is OUR country. Many of our ancestors died to create it and keep it. American citizens have got to demand the protection of our sovereignty and throw politicians out of office who would so cavalierly and irresponsibly toss border control away for a dollar.
Our politicians and corporate executives are throwing away our country, our culture and our security.
Jeez. The guy can't make up his mind. This article is a mass of contradictions.
JPOST.com - JERUSALEM POST.com: "EXCLUSIVE: DUBAI PORTS FIRM ENFORCES BOYCOTT OF ISRAEL" by Michael Freund (ARTICLE SNIPPET: "The parent company of a Dubai-based firm at the center of a political storm in the US over the purchase of American ports participates in the Arab boycott against Israel, The Jerusalem Post has learned.") (Updated February 28, 2006)
Foreign powers bought the Democrats a long time ago. Why don't we care about that?
"The rejection of Dubai Ports as the owner of the previously British management company sends a shot across the bow of Islam."
Oh, gee ... wouldn't want to do that. Islam is such a great and trustworthy friend! /sarcasm
I don't care if we allowed Britain to manage the ports. The UK is our best ally! There is no comparison between the UK and UAE.
Could the reason the Dems are pushing so hard about port security not have a thing to do with acutual security in the US, but growing the federal government by adding the dock workers to the federal work force? Just as they did for the airport screeners?
A good article fatally injured by the use of "you dimwit" to refer to "dear reader."
With all the support the UAE has already given to WOT, I doubt the rest of the Muslim world could get any madder than they already are.
Then ask "why" Homeland Security decisions favoring Arab Muslim billionaires should be considered flawless, in America's best interests, and beyond critical examination by the taxpaying serfs...
The problem is, instead of pursuing policies that would alleviate our domestic industries of those federal burdens, our brain-dead President has also abandoned the American Flag and has joined up with foreign interests in conducting a Trade War against the peaceful prosperity of the American Middle Class.
A Fair article.
