Anti-US Rally
In Dubai

I remember so well all the moderate pundits telling us wackos on the right that the Dubai Ports deal was not the danger we all suspected that it was. The UAE, we were told, was an ally, and a forward looking Arab nation.


Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad led a raucous anti-American rally in the United Arab Emirates a day after a low-key visit by US Vice President Dick Cheney there in an attempt to counter Tehran's influence in the region.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told a cheering Dubai crowd Sunday that America was to blame for creating instability and robbing the region of its wealth. ''Every time your name is mentioned, hatred builds up,'' Ahmadinejad said of the United States to a crowd of thousands, mostly Iranian expatriates. ''Go fix yourself. This is Iran's advice to you. Leave the region... The nations of the region can no longer take you forcing yourself on them.'' (AP)

Find me an Arab Islamic nation that is not backward thinking, and anti-American, and I will gladly take it all back. But, the evidence just keeps piling up higher day by day.
