    I wonder which company. I wonder if they'll take a 5% commission. I would.

    Curious. How is Dubai gonna nuke us now? I mean, that was their plan all along, seeing as how they are Arab, and thus a mortal foe of the US. At least that's what all the reasoned, intelligent, informed debate around here led me to believe. This move makes no sense for them! They are plotting something else, I just know it! A small software startup company perhaps...which they will use to launch a massive Cyber Information Warfare attack and hijack America's internet servers!!! Tricky tricky a-rabs. Be vigilant!

    Maybe they wanted to drop the whole issue so we don't pass some sort of general law that would preclude ALL deals with terror supporting nations going forward.
    "Next Time," they're hissing in aspy tones.

    My theory makes total sense. If they keep pressing we'll pass laws re: the issue, then they'll never get in.
    "Next time", they're wishing in raspy whispers.
