We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

The new poll is on the Dubai Ports World fiasco, with a state-owned company from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) taking control of some U.S. ports. There are certainly complications as Congress has questioned why the President allowed this to happen. Apparently, Bush didn't even know about this event. Also consider both Denmark and China have the same deal. China has already cracked Defense Dept. computers (which apparently isn't hard). Why aren't they getting the same scrutiny?
Also consider the the UAEdonated $100 million to the Katrina relief efforts. That's more than all other nations combined. According to the White House, the total Katrina contributions from other countries came to $126 million including UAE's donation.
Of course this doesn't count the man power from Mexico and other nations.
