DUBAI WANTS TO TAKE OVER A US WEAPON'S MAKER



Lucky we stopped the port deal for a deal to sell Dubai a company called Doncasters would have sailed through:

Dubai International Capital LLC, which is owned by the government of the Persian Gulf emirate, and Doncasters Group Ltd. agreed to delay the transaction by as many as two months from March 31 while government agencies review the purchase, Sameer Al Ansari, Dubai International's chief executive, said in an interview today.

"After what happened with Dubai Ports, the government is looking at this deal more closely," Al Ansari said after a press conference in Dubai announcing an agreement with HSBC Holdings Plc.

What does Doncasters sell the US army? According to Congressmen John Barrow important stuff:

"It is reported that your facility produces turbine engine parts critical to tanks and military aircraft...one must assume [it] plays a necessary and substantial role in the nation's ongoing military efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan," Mr Barrow wrote.

The treasury promises 45 day review.

In any case, before you succomb to charges of racism, remember Americans cannot buy a supermarket in UAE
