Global for Thee, But Not for Me

This Fortune article on whether anyone really believes in globalization hits on the issue of the Dubai company's contract to run ports in the United States.

I'm a bit confused by all of the shouting and have some questions:
  • If we are going to win the war against Islamo-fascism, aren't we going to need Arab allies?
  • Will we win Arab allies by barring any Arab companies, no matter how respected, from contracts?
  • Shouldn't we have strong security oversight regardless of the nationality of any port management company?
