US Approves Second Dubai Deal

Uh, oh. Here we go again.

This time for Dubal International Capital to take over the British firm Doncasters, a precision-engineering company that--get this--makes engines for our military aircraft and parts for tanks. Their projects include the Stealth Joint Fight Striker.
In buying Doncasters, the Arab Islamist country, which also does business with Iran, takes possession of operations in nine U.S. locations and manufactures precision parts for defense contractors such as Boeing, Honeywell, Pratt & Whitney and General Electric.

Perhaps, because of worries about a Nuclear Iran, the Battle of Iraq, and high gas prices, that we forgot about these...or perhaps they hoped we wouldn't care:

    I have to shake my head when I hear about such deals. How stupid Western politicians have become! They are imbued with the idea of making a fast buck. Shame on them!
