So what you're saying is that criticizing the President about his handling of the Palestinian issue is detrimental to our efforts in irradiating terror, is that correct? One should take a stance that would support the status quo and prolong the Palestinians misery for it to be patriotic, right?

You need to go back to teaching. That g-string is cutting off the circulation to your brain.

I believe what he is saying is that if the president (any president) lies our country into war, you have no right to criticize him for doing so until the war is over.

Again, you did not answer my questions but I guess according to you avoiding the issue must be the patriotic thing to do

Do you seriously believe that?

Yes the official war finished quickly. But that is like saying that the wr in France in 1939 finished quickly and the resistance were terrorists.

The war on terrorism could b a bit more tricky. Fighting CIA trained people.

There's no room here in UAE, it's ready to bust at the seams with all the Indians, Pakistanis, Bangledeshis and Phillipinos. There are more foreigners here than Emiratis.

Palestinians are not a primitive people.

I went to school with a member of the Kuwaiti Sabah Al Sabah Family, and used to visit several times a Year. The by law majority Kuwaiti owned businesses were mostly run by Palestinians, Lebanese, Iranians and other expats. Government offices, the military, and even the police had a high percentage of Palestinians, ......... at least until Saddam invaded and many Palestinians collaborated with the Iraqis.
Many businesses in the UAE are run the same way. My brother in law is partnered with a member of an influential UAE family.
IMO, the Dubai real estate bubble is about to burst, and even the estimated $ 50 Bio. a year of Russian mob money funneled through the Dubai Laundromat has slowed down to a trickle.
I hope the multitude of Russian hookers working the UAE don't have to suffer.
