President George W. Bush says “In order to win the war on terror, we’ve got to strengthen our relationships and friendships with moderate Arab countries.” He believes the failed port deal sends the wrong message to our Arab buddies.
What message did you not want to send, Mr. President?
The message that if you funded terrorists, which the United Arab Emirates did and if two of the 9/11 hijackers came from your country, we’re not turning over the safety and security of our shipping ports over to you.
Apparently, Mr. President, you wanted to send the message that we’re tough on terror, but only if you’re in a country we’re not too keen on.
Personally, I don’t think any of our major shipping ports should be controlled by any company that is owned by a foreign company, period. I don’t care if the father company is in Britian, we should control our own shipping ports, our own airports and our own roads and borders. We should not be putting the safety of the American public in the hands of someone who isn’t an American.
That’s the message I want sent to all nations, Mr. President, and you should, too.
