The other shoe drops on Bush's Sunni coalition:The UAE says `Don't launch any aggression against Iran from our soil.'

Hey Boooosh! Face it - you f*#$ed up - you trusted us!

Not only is Bush getting shivved by the Saudis, but to put the icing on the cake, Bush's pals in the UAE - the same anti-Semitic, terrorist supporting allies we saved in the Gulf War, the same `allies' Bush touted to control our ports - put the knife in by saying in no uncertain terms that they would not allow the US to use our airbases or port facilities in their countries for any action against Iran.

The president of the United Arab Emirates, Sheik Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan forbade the US military from using bases in his country to attack or spy on Iran, and said today that the Emirates had assured Iran that it was not siding with Washington in its dispute over Teheran's nuclear program.

`We have reiterated to our Iranian brothers, in a letter delivered recently by the Foreign Minister (Shaikh Abdullah), that we are not a party to the conflict between Iran and the US and that we shall never allow the use of our soil for any military, security or intelligence activities against them,' he was quoted as saying in an interview with the London-based Arabic daily Al Hayat, a report on which was made available through the state-run Emirates News Agency WAM.

The Emirates "refuses to use its territorial lands, air or waters for aggression against any other country, let alone a neighboring Muslim country with which we maintain historic and economic ties," Sheik Khalifa said.

This could prevent the US from using the huge al-Dhafra Air Base near the Emirates capital in Abu Dhabi...not to mention the ports.

A few days ago, Qatari Foreign Minister Sheik Hamad bin Jassem Al Thani issued a similar message, saying Qatar wouldn't permit an attack on Iran to be launched from its soil.

Qatar is home to the enormous al-Udeid air base, the command center of the US Air Force operations in the Mideast.

So, let's see now....The Iraqis, the Turks, the UAE, Kuwait and Qatar have all said that they won't permit those facilities we built to protect them at such an enormous cost and lease from them for millions of dollars a year to be used against their Muslim brothers in Iran.

Gee, what a surprise, eh Mr. President? You may get a nice dollar from these people for that half a billion dollar presidential library you're building over at SMU if you follow orders and keep your mouth shut - but allies against jihad? What were you thinking?

shrubs legacy will be that he has allowed these third & forth world shams of so-called countries run by despots to be allowed to become the diplomatic equivalent of the USA.
i was going to write some other references to remarks ff made, but the caption to the photog is caught in my thought process, or what's left of it anyhow, and i'm having a hard time sitting upright while wiping the tears from my eyes laughing so darned hard.
