You're Bloody Anti-American

God I love Washington! This is probably most moronic thing to come out of the Pentagon in oh about a week. I mean I already knew the Dems were all anti-american, but does this now make the majority leader and all the other republicans opposing the ports deal anti-american too? hmm...

President tries to calm furor over takeover of port management

Friday, February 24, 2006 Posted: 0057 GMT (0857 HKT)

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The second in command at the Pentagon said Thursday that people who publicly oppose allowing a Middle Eastern company to take over management of some U.S. ports could be threatening national security.

RE: You're Bloody Anti-American

From the CNN article...

Bush told reporters: "This deal wouldn't go forward if we were concerned about the security for the United States of America" [;)]

Part of the problem with the issue is that everyone is playing politics with the matter at this point.

The Bush admin is rightly or wrongly supporting the purchase. Everyone else is playinig politics and not really interested in the whether it really is a security threat or not.

Good pint ..er point. There is no security threat as these arabs are only interested in business and also fearing the extremists their security is superb.

Bush has made the same incredible blunder that his father made, ..."no new taxes", then stumping on 'increased taxation'..
He has threatened the 'pop-think' with A-Rabs controlling the ports/accessways!
The fascination is in the future days/weeks ..a one armed juggler with the crabs.



"Credibile est, quia ineptum est" It's believable because it's absurd;


Enjoy it.

RE: You're Bloody Anti-American

No one seems to be bothered about the fact that the majority of foreign owned ports are owned by the Chinese. This sleeping giant has quietly bought up interests in this country for years. It's funny how we get upset over this port being purchased by a UE country but we continue to ignore China.

RE: You're Bloody Anti-American

I'm still trying to get over the fact that a Japanese company owns a major league U.S. baseball team.
