    :lame2: Dillo. There’s big difference between buying a product and allowing someone to control yer ports. For a price of course, but it's not even close to the same thing.

    Any positives you mentioned to post on the transaction yet?

    Bull----we are financing terrorism by buying oil. These are the people who would SEND a WMD through our port if they could. I've mentioned all kinds of possible postives of the transaction going though.

    Strengthen an alliance with strategically invaluable ally in the gulf for one.
    The company has been vetted for 90 days by people who I don't think want to endanger Americans for another.
    They have a proven track record all over the world for another.

    I doubt it--There are many here who would like to see Muslims rounded up like Jews in WWII and exterminated.

    I wouldn't call any of that positive, all weak to say the least..

    ally? In yer dreams, how many troops does the UAE have in Iraq? I donno. Any?
    So we're paying them for staging areas. Some ally.
    Oh ya, where is aljazeera based?

    The Treasure department is NOT in the business of National Security.

    Who has a track record? The newly formed company? The Japanese Company had more experience than even the parent company.
