Commander Cuckoo Bananas & the United Arab Emirates

I am having just a bit of trouble getting my head around this. We (apparently) invaded Iraq because we wanted to prevent terrorists from coming over to America and taking another cheap shot. But now we're inviting the United Arab Emirates, who also have terrorist ties, not only to come on over to the U.S., but to basically have the skeleton key to the country's ports? Meanwhile, Bush can't seem to understand why we're all a bit confused by this. (See blank stare above.)

[Read latest CNN story about the ordeal here.]

I think Homer summed it up best when he was sending Bart off to Catholic school.

Homer to Bart: We're going to send you to another school! And if you get kicked out of that school, you're going straight into the army, where you'll be sent to America's latest military quagmire. Where will it be? North Korea? Iran? Anything's possible with Commander Cuckoo Bananas in charge!
