So, although that was a damn short interview for AG, it reveals more of what I believe is the over-arching strategy of the "long war" to "reshape the middle east" (more like reshape the pipeline of goods and services): they need to establish permanent bases in Iraq, and they're having a very rough time of it in there, so . . . make a deal with Dubai, and maybe that's the next best thing. I'm still piecing this thing together, and better minds than mine are working on it, too. If you have any leads, let me know.
