Let's all just jump off Bush's bone and think for a second.
and you really think reality will sway those in here who are goose-stepping to the party line and the head 'cheerleader' one who owned a ball park franchise vs those who actually played ball... :tng:
At least try to scare people by using the truth
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) funds programs that help people living in the West Bank and Gaza lead healthier and more productive lives.
Since 1993, Palestinians have received more than $1.7 billion in U.S. economic assistance via USAID projects - more than from any other donor country.
Look out -- Americans can't be trusted !!!
Yes. Ridiculousness is all you have left.
knock knock---may I borrow a cup of ridiculousness ?
They don't "control" the ports. Don't get swept away in all this hysteria. The Dubai company would own the terminals, nothing more. The US Coast Guard will still controls security, US Customs still control container checking. Longshoremen will still unload the containers. I think a lot of Americans, I might even say a majority, still have the idea that this deal means kaffiya-wearing Arab militias patrolling the ports and al-Qaeda sympathizers on the cranes and Ahmed Abdul al-Kaboom selecting what containers get inspected.

They will operate the terminals, And will know the contents of all container and the security procedures in place. This is good infor for an enemy. It's a bad idea all around. The majority of americans believe. Get off the bush koolaid.
