"While the Bush administration says that preventing the deal will send a horrible signal to the United States' allies, Democratic and Republican critics say that the UAE is a country widely known for its ties to terrorism. Two of the Sept. 11, 2001, hijackers were from the UAE. In addition, the FBI has said that money for the strikes was transferred to the hijackers primarily through the country's banking system and that much of the operational planning for the attacks took place inside the UAE.

Yeah, the bad dream I'm having is, once they've got their port, the next batch of incoming containers will be a freaking army.
"course, they WILL be in New York.

I personally don't trust a man to send folks to war when he wouldn't go himself. And for sure, I'm thinking there ain't anymore Republicans or Democrats, but rather, they've all been replaced by Proffessional Politicians. Not for the people stand they, but rather for their selves.

Dang. Talk about cynical. Can you guess I spent from 1965-1988 in Ft. Wayne? Wildwood at Harrison and Wall Street.
And various apartments.
Still visit up that-a-ways on occasion.
