"Because of the strong relationship between the United Arab Emirates and the United States and to preserve that relationship, DP World has decided to transfer fully the U.S. operation of P&O Operations North America to a United States entity," DP World's chief operating officer, Edward H. Bilkey, said in the statement that Warner relayed to other senators. The announcement did not specify which American company would be involved.Dubai will retain ownership and control, but simply shift the letterhead to an American firm. It'll be the same deal, but now they'll have to pay a fee to an American company to use it's residency to get around the Congressional objections. Republicans will crow that it's adequate protection for Amurika, Lieberman and his DLC cohorts will go along, while other Democrats will complain. Those complaining Democrats will be labeled obstructionists, the public will yawn, the deal will go through and Bush will have won.
I'm a very lucky person with every allergy known to man but still happy to be enjoying a wonderful life living in the best place in the world!
