I imagine there\’ll be a massive outcry in the US about foreign company BAE Systems\’ bid for security contractor L3.
No, wait, I don\’t imagine that at all: the people who run BAE Systems are white.
Incidentally, I suspect the companies most pissed off by the Dubai Ports World comedy shennanigans will be Boeing and General Electric. The fastest-growing international airline is Emirates, owned by the Dubai government. Yup, the same Dubai government that the US just racistly humiliated.
According to the Telegraph, in an article published a couple of weeks ago (but researched, I strongly suspect, earlier):
Boeing is also in talks with Emirates, the Dubai flag-carrier about building a bigger version of the 787 – called the 787-10 – which would have about 300 seats. According to [Boeing spokesman] Bair, \”it\’s not going to be a matter of if we are going to do it, it\’s a matter of when.\”
Hmm. Â£many says they\’ll go for a 300-seater A350 instead…
