#1 IF the CIA's political sense of the US is this bad no wonder they screw up in the ROW.

#3 It's only a issue because Chuck Schummer wanted it to be. He is a real peice of scum. What this job entails is counting beans. No relationship to "port security" at all.

#4 Just another issue for the Dems to manipulate and use to try make President Bush look bad.

#5 Something else to consider: Dubai is just one small part of the United Arab Emirates. The UAE consists of Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujeira, Sharjah, Ras al Khaima and Umm al Qiwain. The UAE, plus Oman, Bahrain, and Kuwait, are our most important allies in the Middle East. All of these entities are monarchies, with the local sheik the monarch of power. ALL of them fear Iran, and are only slightly less fearful of Saudi Arabia. This whole issue could blow up in our faces far worse than the Iraq invasion has. I think too much of the reaction has been of the knee-jerk type, instead of careful thought. Just my 2c.

#6 I knew when the Dems burned the midnight oil with Blame Bush press releases and when rantburg was suddenly filled with trolls using the issue to bash Bush, that it was probably going to turn out to be just about like this.

#7 This is one of the funding instruments for the 'SpacePort' in Dubai. Just look at those runways!

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
