To: Dog Gone
Some enterprising reporter ought to ask the Australian government how things are going at Melbourne, where DP operates the port there.
The Aussies are our buddies in Iraq and they certainly have their own muslim concerns in Indonesia and domestically. So what's their experience been?
I don't think a reporter will do that story, though, because the ports story is basically a bash-Bush opportunity.

Some reporter should find out if a US Company put in a bid to buy this portion of the British Company P&O.
There was open bidding and no US takers.
It was a fight between Singapore and Dubai.
If Singapore won, no one would care, but the premise of fear over foreign control would still be there.
