I wonder how long it will be before a conspiracy theorist makes the connection between the new port deal (more cronyism-Snow and the new marad administrator) and 9/11?
I mean, think about the implications...UAE, terrorists, planes into buildings, and the horrible loss of life...
Now think about the possibility here-and I throw this out to any conspiracy theorist who wishes to pick it up, if UAE and the Dubai port contract is not inherently threatening to our port and national security, as determined by admin lickspittles, could it be because folks 'in the know' already knew that 9/11 was at least a LIHOP and at worst a MIHOP? Would explain the readiness to do the port deal. Gives pause to think, heh? Our enemy is not REALLY our enemy, it is a fiction under which we might make money.
Personally, I chalk it up to a simple combo-greed, cronyism, incompetence and the all emcompassing conservative concept that we are all too stupid to get it, and their closely held belief that they are too smart for us anyway because they are superior beings.
It is rather amazing isn't it? All these military-industrial corporattions losing out on the Cold War business surge that lasted for decades. The peace dividend was staring them in their face. They were about to lose the most giving teat they ever had. Could not do that, couldn't go there. Carlyle group in tatters, no income... Need a new enemy to ramp the country up, maintain our empire and profits. Need a BIG enemy. Let's have a religious war-how about them Muslims? Great deat-picks up the business world, the M-I'complex' the fundamentalist Christians/rapturists, Zionists, neocons,reduces the unemployment figures and on and on. So many answers to their problems. Let's have another 'great' and powerful oponent, even if we manufacture it from whole cloth.
Hmmmmmmm. Makes ya wonder, does it not?
