President Bush: Pumped over UAE; Chickenshit over Denmark

President Bush:  Pumped over UAE; Chickenshit over Denmark

Is President Bush following two of his predecessors’ shameful lead into Dhimmihood?  

Just this past week, President Clinton in Pakistan called for the prosecution of the Danish cartoon publishers and President Carter called for US support for Hamas.

Now, President Bush has come out with guns blazing for the (hitherto virtually unheard-of) Emir of the UAE, whose sweetheart deal on Port Security is threatened by good old American common sense and patriotism.

Meanwhile, on the issue of Denmark – a nation that SENT TROOPS TO HELP US IN IRAQ (did the UAE do that – I don’t THINK so!) – the erstwhile “American cowboy President” has been mealy-mouthed at best, or as Bill Maher (Bill MAHER!) said, “chickenshit” at worst – in standing up for our ally as she has been cursed, badmouthed, and boycotted (to say nothing of having its flags and embassies burned and attacked) by mobs of lunatic Muslims around the globe.

Frankly, I am not only disappointed in our President on these two – not unrelated – issues, I am more than a little disgusted with him.  America deserves better -- and I expected better – than this from George W. Bush.

Meanwhile, someone who DOES get it, the LIBERAL Christopher Hitchens, is calling for solidarity with beleaguered Denmark.  (Funny, isn’t it – how Bush is a no-show on this issue?)  (Hat tip: MMalkin.)  Also, lgf has a great thread on this topic.

That should teach other nations the value of sending their boys to die alongside Americans in wartime – total neglect by an ungrateful nation led by Dhimmis lusting for ever more lucrative deals with Communists and Jihadists for the small asking price of their very souls.

Update: Alexandra of All Things Beautiful blog has also posted on the Hitchens Washington, DC, demonstration of solidarity with Denmark (in the context of the Cartoon Jihad).

Not only are there no Emeratis helping in Iraq, our USN sailors & officers are not allowed to be in uniform or carry weapons when not on the base at Jebel Ali.

I am firmly convinced that Bush has lost his mind...

I have been a long time Bush supporter but that is rapidly changing...

He has been accused of not being too bright before so I KNOW that there can be no hidden agenda, he would never think of that...

Would he??

Enquiring minds want to know...

Hi, texasfred! You are certainly not the only one expressing this opinion! Maybe the stresses of the war in Iraq and the war within (agains the media) have exacted their price on his mind!

lol, yes, I have spent time there. That's how I know it's not a "shitty" country. It is beautiful and fabulous. But I do think that the concerns about port security are overblown. Do you read the Counterterrorism Blog? Basically the UAE is like Switzerland. They take no one's side and everyone's side who has the money.

hi, bostonmaggie! Thank you for the comment. I just realized that I, too, have been to the UAE (for a few hours, years ago, in the military), and I must say that, it DID seem to be a "shitty little country" to me! ;-) (But I am sure that it has been built up and developed a great deal in the intervening decade-and-a-half since I was there. As for your "Switzerland analogy," it does not fly with me. Neither the Swedes and the Swiss had any guts against the Nazis. Their alleged "neutrality" makes me even MORE opposed to their getting their hands on our ports. -- gunjam
