Why not have Americans in running our ports?

Letter to the Editor

Everyone is arguing about if we should let the foreign Arab countries run US ports. Especially countries involved in the 9-11 hijackings. I have a radical idea. Why don’t we let United States companies run our own ports. Maybe it’s time to start doing things ourselves rather than rely on the Muslims and the Communist Chinese to take care of us. These kind of decisions makes it seem as if America is deliberately trying to destroy itself.

Gee, there’s a novel idea. Not that it necessarily provides us better protection, but we might have far better recourse in the courts if something goes wrong than if it’s a foreign government we need to go after (where do you go then, The Hague?).

Of course, if something goes wrong on THIS type operation the courts anywhere might not be particularly effective. The whole corporate mentality anymore makes us vulnerable — no matter who it is or where they’re from — at end, pretty much all whores.

But I’ll take our whores over Al Queda and Taliban suck-ups any day.
