Dubai Ports World: A Election Time Surprise?
I am still convinced that the Dubai Ports World issue is not dead. This theory is premised upon the strong rumor that the corporation paid a premium price for the United States terminal agreements. No American company seems remotely ready to handle the daunting responsibilities, and other foreign companies think the investment is too risky. Why is DPW no longer on the radar screen? Could it be that the Democratic Party and its MSM allies are going to resurrect the issue just in time for the November elections? Do they think it will harm the Republicans? Might the Democrats come out winners regardless of the outcome? Are they in a no lose situation? Will Bill Clinton and his Democratic buddies get the deal approved (something I also support)---while the Republicans get slaughtered?
