CNN.com – Bush: No need to worry about port security – Feb 23, 2006

Okay, I know I said I wasn’t going to write anything about the shipping ports until I received more facts, but this quote from President Bush bugs the hell out of me.

He says, “People don’t need to worry about security.”

We don’t? Since when?

Since 9/11, we’ve been told — through various people and groups — that we need to watch what we say, we need to pay attention due to security concerns, etc, etc. We’ve been told that the President is allowed to circumvent the Constitution of the United States of America because we are at war with terrorists.

But now, President Bush has decided that we don’t need to worry about security.

Really?

I’m going to double-check these facts, but Dubai Ports World company will be purchasing Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation — the company who manages the U.S. Ports now for over 6 billion dollars. Now, Dubai Ports World is located in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) — a country that has terrorist ties. Money that went to fund the 9/11 attacks came from the banks of Dubai. Two of the 9/11 hijackers were from UAE and Bush considers them our friends? With friends like these, who needs enemies? (she asks in her best Yiddish accent.)

I could go on.

I’m sure someone will jump on the support Bush at all costs bandwagon, but isn’t there a place where we should draw a line and say, “No, we don’t support you in this?”

God have mercy on us all, because we know the terrorists won’t.

God Bless
