Malkin stays focused on UAE

leave a comment »

People have been coming out of the ceilings lately to say what glorious partners the UAE have been in their “solidarity” with us on the terror fight. The same schtick comes out of each of them: Oh – the UAE is like some kind of Arab version of Las Vegas – there are American flags on every corner there

Um-huh – anyway – I am glad that folks like Michelle are giving some proper context here because while the UAE has certainly been more cooperative than other Arab neighbors, they display many of the same old contradictions seen with other “good friends” like Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.

As liberal as they may be, the UK still makes better bedfellows…
