Thoughts on Bush's UAE Visit

When I stay over at someone else's home, personally I'd like to have as little impact to their normal life as possible - that's the least I can do to show appreciation to their hospitality. The US President G. W. Bush obviously does not think the same way.

Dubai made a public holiday yesterday (Monday) due to Bush's visit in UAE. It sounded all nice at first, but really it's because of some major road closures and motorists were "advised" to stay home and not to drive on that day. And the "holiday" was only announced one day ahead, that's right. This is the gridlock caused because of the unannounced road closures. Not to mention the other visiting tourists have to revise their travel plans.

And this is Mr. Bush's convoy of vehicles. Nice. ...I know who NOT to invite to my home.

P.S. For the record, this posting is by no means political. It is a basic courtesy discussion. Cheers!
