How are the UAE our allies? No seriously. What's one mission we cooperated side by side on?
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-06T16:17:47.8425748-05:00
This should help a bit. http://www.uae-embassy.org/uae-us-relations/uae-us-timeline
ChosenWolff says2014-07-06T16:19:02.4261748-05:00
We have diplomatic relations, but we're not working side by side on anything. Actually, I'm changing my vote to Saudi Arabia, as they've done a million more financial, military, and diplomatic operations with us.
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-06T16:21:34.3375078-05:00
Quotes to put it in perspective. "Iraq invades Kuwait in August. Abu Dhabi provides financial and logistical assistance to the US during Operation Desert Storm. The UAE deploys 2,000 of its own troops in the conflict." "The UAE emerges as one of the world’s largest markets for American-manufactured military and defense hardware. Between 1992 and 1994, the UAE spends $360 million on US defense equipment." "The UAE and US sign a defense pact, permitting the US to base troops and equipment within federation borders. Jebel Ali port, in Dubai, is crucial to US naval operations, as it is the only harbor in the Gulf deep enough to berth an aircraft carrier." "The United States is attacked on September 11. UAE authorities are among the first to condemn Al Qaeda. The UAE immediately severs relations with the Taliban regime in Afghanistan. The UAE orders banks to freeze the assets of dozens of organizations and individuals suspected of funding terrorism."
ChosenWolff says2014-07-06T16:24:55.5437282-05:00
First of all, every arab nation has done those things. The only thing unique to the UAE is the financial support. The whole Arab League invaded Saddam's Kuwait, just like 11 countries froze the Taliban (the fact they had investments in the Taliban beforehand was annoying). They're like Saudi Arabia. Rich cities, undemocratic, and low human rights. Only difference is that the Saud's side with the US in about every op in the Middle East. Hell, Al Saud declared us Arabia's greatest friends.
ChosenWolff says2014-07-06T16:25:43.6186344-05:00
I will concede that the UAE are cooperative, but allies? No, or would they be the greatest if they were.
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-06T16:25:49.5814354-05:00
... Damn.
ChosenWolff says2014-07-06T16:46:53.4141132-05:00
Lol, Israel. The only thing Israel's good at is making everyone nation that interacts with it a spawn for Jihad.
ChosenWolff says2014-07-06T16:47:55.3225536-05:00
Dilara............... Are you for real. You just said Israel violates our values of freedom................. But voted Saudia Arabia. Sectarian Stupidity, the name is Dilara.
Dilara says2014-07-06T16:48:50.7892656-05:00
Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan aren't arab countries. Pakistanis are like North Indians. After India hit indipendence the people in north India wanted their own Mislims country--now Pakistan. Afgans and Iranians are desendants of people from the caucus region of Europe who migrated down there. They're white. Especially in Afghanistan people have brown or red hair and green or blue eyes.
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-06T16:49:27.2075649-05:00
Please don't fight. Conflict solves nothing.
Dilara says2014-07-06T16:50:16.1061471-05:00
Chosen wolf. What's your profile picture of. That looks like an Arab flag.
ChosenWolff says2014-07-06T16:51:43.7001471-05:00
WTF was the point of that paragraph? So what, you proved Iranians are white (duh, all arabs are white, not Caucasian), but that has nothing to do with my point.
Dilara says2014-07-06T16:53:37.4553471-05:00
Chosen Wolff. I was talking to whoever made this poll not you. Arabs are Semitic people they're not really white. Iranians and afghans are white so those places shouldn't be on this poll.
ChosenWolff says2014-07-06T16:53:41.4957471-05:00
Well, I just changed my profile pic, but that's the flag of the Syrian National Council and Free Syria party. It is the nationally recognized independence flag for the revolutionary coalition (even al-qaeda uses it).
ChosenWolff says2014-07-06T16:54:47.7871811-05:00
Arabs are Caucasian. So are white people.
LogicalLunatic says2014-07-06T16:55:08.2785471-05:00
Israel is probably the most modern nation in the entire Middle East.
LogicalLunatic says2014-07-06T16:55:44.7981471-05:00
Arabs aren't white.
ChosenWolff says2014-07-06T16:55:46.3893471-05:00
Well, I would say the gulf protectorate states are more modernized.
ChosenWolff says2014-07-06T16:56:24.1321635-05:00
Arabs are Caucasian. Not white. But white people are also Caucasian. It's an umbrella term.
LogicalLunatic says2014-07-06T16:56:40.6524576-05:00
They won't be when the oil runs out, lol.
ChosenWolff says2014-07-06T16:56:55.1447647-05:00
Iran is persian, so Dilara is right, Arab world isn't the correct term.
Dilara says2014-07-06T16:57:22.6941881-05:00
Saidi Arabia is a better ally than Israel even though they don't give women rights. Iranians and Pakistanis aren't Arabs tags what I meant. Are you syrian?
ChosenWolff says2014-07-06T16:57:49.9940131-05:00
There cities, infrastructure, and amenities will still exist. America doesn't have natural resources anymore either. We're circulating old wealth.
ChosenWolff says2014-07-06T16:59:15.9180828-05:00
Israels a fine nation, with an exemplary constitution, but in all fairness, everyone who supports them winds up face down in the Euphrates.
LogicalLunatic says2014-07-06T16:59:48.0224712-05:00
I don't get what you mean.
ChosenWolff says2014-07-06T17:01:29.6990842-05:00
America doesn't have natural resources (we don't depend on them), as we built up surplus wealth. Most people work in corporations and labor, rather than farming and agriculture, because we import and trade products of other nations. The Arab world can do that as well, and be just as wealthy without oil (pending they make surplus wealth)
ChosenWolff says2014-07-06T17:02:24.9702385-05:00
Sweettea's justification was that the king is American, lol
ChosenWolff says2014-07-06T17:02:37.0340739-05:00
Ghani is also American
LogicalLunatic says2014-07-06T17:02:37.1900769-05:00
I meant the other thing, about people who support Israel.
ChosenWolff says2014-07-06T17:06:25.0557775-05:00
The Arab League, and all it's constituent nations, have extremely ill relations with Israel. As well as terrorist groups.
dietorangesoda says2014-07-06T17:11:01.3233612-05:00
I voted israel but honestly i dont think anybody from this region supports america
debate_power says2014-07-07T15:40:52.1497016-05:00
Just pick the most corrupt out of the bunch and they're probably our ally.
