Nobody asked me but…

I’m going to tell you anyway:

I am disgusted by the Dubai Ports Boondoggle. The same congress that attempted to puff this deal into a grave security threat just voted overwhelmingly to renew the hideously named Patriot Act, and handed the president a free pass on the NSA internal spying. If foreign ownership of US assets really disturbed them, they would be have to look at some much larger issues like the trillions of dollars of US debt that China holds. This is completely a case where Dubai is being singled out because it’s an Arab country. And so our arbitrary posturing around it strengthens the hand of Islamic extremists, without doing a single thing to bolster US security.
