I wasn’t happy about the Dubai ports deal, given my lack of confidence in the Department of Homeland Security. But now I’m really upset that the Brit aerospace company - Doncasters - is about to be sold to Dubai.
Doncasters is - according to this FT report — a supplier to very sensitive programs including the Joint Strike Fighter. I’ll check with DoD and other sources. But I’m almost positive that we can’t risk security by enabling Dubai interests to get a view inside programs such as that one. We cut the Israelis out of JSF as a penalty for their sales to China. I don’t favor letting any nation into JSF or other weapon system programs if we can’t be entirely certain of maintaining security. With Dubai, that’s just not a good bet.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
