well I'm not shocked nor do I find it strange that we might get a little ancy when a company from a region of the world the US is in war with, is protested for buying ports in the states. We are not in war with Europe, so its not as shocking

so in world war two, if a british company bought the ports, you would be against it because were at war with a company in the region of the world the us is in war with? THE UNITED ARAB EMIRATES are our allies! We sould not hold one country accountable for another's actions.

The term "utopia" is combined from two Greek words — "no" (ou) and "place/land" (topos), thus meaning "nowhere" or more literally, "no-place/no-land."
