Invasion. Occupation. Secret “black” prisons. Prisoner rendition. Guantanamo. Abu Ghraib.

It appears that the United Arab Emirates will not be managing terminals in our ports. President Bush is concerned about the negative message this sends to our Arab and Muslim friends. Right.

"Are you suggesting that Arabs can't make a distinction between accused terrorists and
ordinary citizens?" - RWC

I think CRD's subliminal message is that the US doesn't.

RWC

"Yeah, I'm sure they're making that distinction when they see pics from Abu Ghraib and hear about people being held indefinitely without a hearing in Gitmo."

"We did and do things to our enimies. Arabs understand that."

Yeah, I'm sure they're making that distinction when they see pics from Abu Ghraib and hear about people being held indefinitely without a hearing in Gitmo.

It also hides the real issue. That the problem isn't who is in charge of unloading the cargo. The problem is the total lack of effort at securing our ports.

Almost five years after 9/11 and our ports are still wide open. And this is the bunch that made "competence" such an issue in the last election campaign.

We did and do things to our enimies. Arabs understand that. We insulted the friendliest of all our Arab friends. That is much harder for Arabs to understand.
