We are supposedly at war with the attackers of 9/11 only we aren't. No Afghanis or Iraqis or even Iranians much less North Koreans attacked us on 9/11. So here we are, letting the Dubai buy up the British-owned security and miltiary systems! This is ridiculous

WASHINGTON, April 27 — President Bush is expected on Friday to announce his approval of a deal under which a Dubai-owned company would take control of nine plants in the United States that manufacture parts for American military vehicles and aircraft, say two administration officials familiar with the terms of the deal.
The officials, who were granted anonymity so they could speak freely about something the president had not yet announced, said that the final details had not yet been set and that Mr. Bush might put conditions on the transaction to keep military technology in the United States.
This is like Prescott Bush bankrolling Hitler after Hitler declared war on the USA. Oops. Well, Prescott had to change his tune when the Feds visited him. In this case, the farcial war against the phantom 9/11 attackers has not only been totally hijacked, the actions Bush took made the sponsors of the real attackers much much richer. And they are on a huge buying spree and they have their eyeballs on anything having to do with security and military applications. The British were given many contracts or allowed to buy American businesses from increasingly corrupt or bankrupt Americans so we could cement our imperial relationships with a "friendly" country.
Namely, after privatizing military functions like weapons development and manufacturing, we then allowed the people running these enterprises which are for our defenses, to sell them to foreigners! Then, to keep us from being agitated by all this, our rulers assured us, the Brits are allies and to keep them as allies, we must share the taxpayer-supported spoils of the military/industrial complex with them or they might turn to Germany or France for allies.
The now, the Brits, going as threadbare as Americans, are now selling off many of these components of our security and military procurment systems to people who are not allies in any sense of the word. The UAE uses us and we want them to give us oil and access to military interventions with other oil pumping nations that won't open their fields to our oil conglamorates.
The UAE as well as Saudi Arabia keep a tight grip on their own oil profits, you know, not that our rulers ever mention this. The UAE and SA don't mind us trying to use our military to pump oil in Iraq or Iran because they hate and fear both places since both have strong populations that are well educated and very motivated to fight. The UAE and SA prefer playing playboy and spending money. They both could be easily overrun by their more dynamic neighbors and the easy conquest of Kuwait terrified them massively. All these sheiks and kings want to use us as their tool to fight their wars and in return, they will take over all our important military/security industries. Sweet!
So we can be their mercenaries AND they will make money when we must go to war! And like Israel, they have dark byzantine plots which feature us taking many hits at home as well as in the Middle East. We are to fight everyone for whoever pulls the strings the hardest.
Britain is being sucked into this, too, but they aren't paying hardly a pence in blood or treasure compared to us. Nearly the entire mess is being bankrolled by the American taxpayer. This is the stupidest form of mercenary contractual business ever seen. Namely, we get zero profit but we are stuck taking all the bad stuff while our employers suck us dry!
The fact that Americans are not running or owning these companies means the USA should cancel all contracts with them and put out bids for ONLY American companies owned by people the FBI can arrest since they will be here and not in a hostile nation far away. Namely, we have to control at least this! What else will we sign away to other nations? The list is endless for all of America is for sale thanks to Free Trade and the fact that we are running a massive deficit with the entire planet on every level and eventually, Americans will own nothing and pay for everything!
Either we stop paying for wars and clear the decks or we pay ourselves, at least. Is that asking too much? Heh. Yes.
