If they are in the Arab boycott of Israel, it is indeed a problem.

Yeah, but if they find out, there could be hell to pay politically.

I'm talking about simple consumption. It has gone on for decades (the boycott is nothing new).

Good cop, bad cop?

Bill Clinton helped Dubai on ports deal

Quote:
Bill Clinton, former US president, advised top officials from Dubai two weeks ago on how to address growing US concerns over the acquisition of five US container terminals by DP World.

It came even as his wife, Senator Hillary Clinton, was leading efforts to derail the deal.

Mr Clinton, who this week called the United Arab Emirates a “good ally to America”, advised Dubai’s leaders to propose a 45-day delay to allow for an intensive investigation of the acquisition, according to his spokesman.

it says this on the breaking news banner on msnbc.com

Sen. Warner says Dubai firm to give up control of U.S. ports



By ANDREW TAYLOR, Associated Press Writer

A Dubai-owned company said Thursday that it was prepared to give up its management stake in some U.S. ports, a move made as congressional leaders warned President Bush that both the House and Senate appeared ready to block the takeover.

It was not immediately clear whether the announcement would be enough to cool widespread sentiment in Congress to pass legislation blocking the deal, which has become an election-year hardship for Republicans.

Sen. John Warner, chairman of the Armed Services Committee, took to the Senate floor to read to colleagues a press release from the company disclosing its plans.

"Because of the strong relationship between the United Arab Emirates and the United States and to preserve that relationship, DP World has decided to transfer fully the U.S. operation of P&O Operations North America to a United States entity," DP World's chief operating officer, Edward H. Bilkey, said in the statement that Warner relayed to other senators.

The move came as the White House, facing a Republican rebellion in Congress, played down President Bush's veto threat and said he was trying to find a compromise to resolve the uproar over the Dubai-owned company's plan to take over significant operations at several U.S. sea ports.

Suddenly I had a nightmarish vision of Pierce becoming President in 40 years

I read the article. God help us if he's ever president. Fortunately he's not interested in running for public office.
