Sheiks Royally Pissed At Port Delay - Threaten Retaliation

UPDATE: Rawstory is reporting that Dubai is withdrawing from the ports deal in the face of overwhelming opposition from the American people. More details as they become available...

Now back to my original posting:

From The Hill

"Dubai is threatening retaliation against American strategic and commercial interests if Washington blocks its $6.8 billion takeover of operations at several U.S. ports."

"(T)
he emirate let it be known that it is preparing to hit back hard if necessary.

A source close to the deal said members of Dubai’s royal family are furious at the hostility both Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill have shown toward the deal.

“They’re saying, ‘All we’ve done for you guys, all our purchases, we’ll stop it, we’ll just yank it,’” the source said."
