GUEST,diana BS: Bush Gives US Port Security to Arabs! (202* d) RE: BS: Bush Gives US Port Security to Arabs! 24 Feb 06

If there is any hypocracy going around, it belongs to the Bush administration.

The UAE is a monarchy and a feudalistic society. If he were true to his own stated morality, perhaps he should liberate and bring democracy to the Arabs (mostly Muslim) of the UAE. Instead he OK's the sale of U.S. ports to an undemocratic country. I thought he wanted to be a beacon of light to the down trodden of the Middle East.

I could care less if the UAE is Arabic. What I care about is the mixed messages the Bush administration continues to give to its citizens.

Arabs are good but Muslims are bad.

Muslims are O.K. but not sectarian Muslims.

Doesn't matter if it was a free election, sectarians are bad.

Saddam is bad because he was not a sectarian Muslim.

The only bad guy in this scene is that stupid oaf you call Mr. President. He's pretty damned confused and continues to confuse all of you as well. When are you gonna wake up and realize that this is not a private business buying U.S. ports, its another government. A government with a long history of smuggling and money laundering. Is this really the kind of people you want running your ports? Why don't you just give them to the Mafia?

Just because we object to the UAE doesn't mean we dislike Arabs. In fact, if we gave the ports to Iran, we could probably eliminate the heroin trade and smuggling too. I would trust the Mullahs far more than I would trust the UAE.

Here's a question for you. What the difference between Saddam and the Emirs of the UAE?
