Like Alec said, these aren't the lunatic Muslims.<br><br>However, If I were American, I would be upset at all the outsourcing. I can't believe there are no Americans that couldn't run the show. It's the way of the world I guess... happening everywhere.<br><br>
I still don't see what the big deal is. It's not very different from having a Dutch company as owner of one of the biggest supermarket chains. The UAE company is just managing the dock, after all. When we start outsourcing the Coast Guard, then I'll start to worry!<br><br>. . . . . Here's lookin' at [color:red]you</font color=red> kid.

Again, I think the bigger problem is the process. It's hard to question the management portfolio and credentials of this company. However, it's a PR nightmare given who the players are and from where. It's got nothing to do with prejudice or racism and everything to do with forthrightness and common sense.<br><br>This deal should have been made public from the git-go, and the vetting should have been especially robust and just as public. <br><br>In the end, there would still be detractors for sure, but we would not be left scratching our heads wondering WTF the admin was thinking, and why they felt they could sneak another fastball under the strike zone. Or, maybe... just maybe... something questionable or even dangerous might have been uncovered. Something that might be a legitimate deal-killer after all.<br><br>
Interesting segment on outsourcing the other day on NPR. At least in the telemarketing universe, there's a gradual reversal of the trend showing up. Companies are beginning to see that complex transactions, or those that involve closing a sale or cultivating a new account, or that rely on "local knowledge" are not producing any ROI on the cheap labor costs. More an more companies are bringing their TM back stateside, or even embracing what's being called "homesourcing" (where an individual can set up a call center in his/her home).<br><br>
Agreed.<br><br>I'm getting saddle sores from getting rubbed the wrong way<br>by terms such as "OLD NEWS!" "MOVE ON" and "IF YOU Y'ALL<br>FELT UNCOMFORTABLE WITH WHAT WAS GOING DOWN, Ya'<br>SHOULDA' SPOKE-UP!"(as if we don't once their cover is blown)<br><br>Having taken the blame for agreeing to "do what had to be done"<br>following the "with us or a'gin us" brow-beating following 9-ll,<br>IMO we shouldn't again be cowed into silence when we are made<br>to succumb to scrutiny, ((Wire-E-Tapping)) for being patriots, <br>while potentially enemy states get a wholesale clean bill of health. <br><br><br><br>
