The fact that the deal has been rubber stamped by so many right wing sleazoids and incompetents (is there any other way to characterize people who make it into the Bush Merdeshitocracy? Merde is French for sh*t. Sorry for the redundancy, but Bushies deserve it)makes the deal all the more suspect and worthy of our distrust and rejection.
Pardon me for being paranoid, but it's time for another terrorist attack. I'm not calling for one. It's been five years and I wouldn't put it past the Bush scum team to arrange something manageable-- some kind of explosion on a ship, or maybe even a last moment capture of a nuclear device-- all with the help of our wonderful "UAE ally."
The report on the Dubai Ports World site brags that this group which the White House has approved to buy the controlling operations for six major US ports isa "top six global port operator." Isn't that lovely. Control of ports in just about every continent.
A little bit about Dubai. There are about 800,000 people in Dubai, but about 600,000 of them are foreign workers with little or no rights. That leaves 200,000. It doesn't seem like it would be that difficult to figure out who the terrorists and the terrorist friends are. Then again, Dubai is not exactly the most enlightened place. it's not a Democracy and any dissent, if ever expressed there, is quashed quickly. The ruler of Dubai recently DIED, while in Australia, of "natural causes," at the age of 64. No cause of death was given, and his body was flown back to Dubai on a private jet. His brother, Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, inherited the throne. He will also become the Prime Minister of the UAE. He may also have some ties to terrorism through the The Council on American-Islamic Relations which he has helped to fund. Dubai owns Dubai Ports World. That means that Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum owns it.
Now, we also know that genius George didn't find out about this deal until his wunderkinds had already approved the deal. The idiots are running things and we are in deep doo doo. I did my digging to find out a terrorist connection to DPW in just under an hour. Who knows how many more connections there are.
