Dubai And Brittain The Same?

I hate to just go on and on about the same topic, but this really set me off:
"I don't understand why it's OK for a British company to operate our ports but not a company from the Middle East when we've already determined security is not an issue."
That's our president talking about Dubai World Ports taking over several of our key ports.

I can think of a few differences, including: Britain is fighting on our side in the Global War on Terror. EAU provided financing and personnel for the 9/11 attacks. Symbolism matters.

That's three pretty good differences. The president better change his view, or be prepared to lose a big one just before the 2006 election -- a really, really stupid thing to do.
