    Arab company in charge of US ports

    Hmm...

    This seems like it's one of those...oops, I told you this wasn't a good idea things.

    By that I mean, I know the forum rules, yet I chose to ignore them. I should've written a paragraph, but settled on a sentence, and now my mistake will have to be corrected by someone else, too bad, too bad. Though, it may have been wise, considering I would've been articulating a ridiculous point.

    I don't trust these filthy Ay-rabs, and I'm simply not comfortable with terrorist camel jockeys owning important business interests in fortress North America. But I'm not racist, so don't accuse me of being racist, you America hating terrorist communists!

    The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposing ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function.

    are we assuming that they will buy the ports, then blow them up?

    DP World said it won approval from a secretive U.S. government panel that considers security risks of foreign companies buying or investing in American industry. The U.S. Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States "thoroughly reviewed the potential transaction and concluded they had no objection," the company said in a statement...

    Shipping experts noted that many of the world's largest port companies are not based in the United States, and they pointed to DP World's strong economic interest in operating ports securely and efficiently.

    "It's in Dubai's interest to make sure this runs well," said James Lewis, who worked with the U.S. committee at the State and Commerce departments.

    Stephen E. Flynn, who studies maritime security at the New York-based Council on Foreign Relations, said even under foreign control, U.S. ports will continue to be run by unionized American employees. "You're not going to have a bunch of UAE citizens working the docks," Flynn said. "They're longshoremen, vested in high-paying jobs."

    If a Columbian firm bought out American ports I would expect it to be easier for Columbian drug producers to grease wheels and get there **** into this country by virtue of those wheels' greater proximity both culturally and geographically.

    Was it good for China when foreign interests controlled her ports in the 19th century? Granted this isn't quite the same situation, but you'll excuse me if I see the possibility for harm.

    I will not go so far as to say this is some grand scheme to sneak nukes into every major American port. However the weaknesses in port security are already well known and hardly a situation soon to be in hand. This deal opens up the possibility for numerous security breaches of all sorts by virtue of the fact that it would be considerabbly easier for Al Quaeda to extort, bribe, hoodwink, or infiltrate a UAE firm than an American, European, or East Asian one.

    You won't see me protesting anywhere, but for what it's worth I will be that much more aware and suspect of our own harbors. I'm sorry if my suspicion offends your ever so gentle sensibilities.

    That's some funny ****, ICY.

    It is, but it's not mine, it's Jack Carter's (poster on mma.tv), he is a truly great example of American conservatism. He posts that every time a liberal posts something anti-Bush, etc. He also likes to do the tranny bait and switch (and has said he would have sex with good looking trannies before ugly women), and recently had an affair with a woman in her 50s (he's in his 30s)...an all-around great guy.
