When Bush Bashing Goes Too Far
First, I do not believe that Dubai is a terrorist state. Second, the whole Dubai controversy seems to have brought out a whole slew of Arab bashing and racial profiling. The crux of most arguments revolves around the fact that Dubai is an Arab state and therefore cannot be trusted. This line of thinking removes rational thought from the equation. Simply put, we are supposed to believe that "arab" equates to "dangerous". I'm not playing along. Sorry.
As much as I'd love to join in the feeding frenzy, I cannot in good conscience do it.
The Bush administration had more to do with 9/11 than Dubai ever did.
