The corporation Dubai Ports World of the United Arab Emirates will allow a US entity to buy the company which has operational control of terminals at six US ports. However, the Baron and Dympha point out that the deal itself has a big problem (still).
What no one seems to be paying attention to is that the deal violates our agreement with Israel not to do business with companies that are owned by states which embargo trade with Israel.Additionally, what I'm wondering about is this: what happens if DPW changes its mind and keeps the company?
Assuming that DPW is honorable, however--and I'm not saying that the company's leadership isn't honorable--and follows its word, justice would indeed be poetic were Halliburton to acquire operational control of the ports.
