Ahmadinejad Leads Anti-U.S. Rally in Dubai

By Cernig

Cheney enters and leaves Dubai quietly but Ahmadinejad gets the full red carpet treatment with media and top Sheiks greeting his arrival. Then he gets to lead a massive stadium-sized anti-US rally in a Sunni nation where political parties are banned and power is held solely by tribal families.

What does that say about American credibility and "soft power" in the Middle East?

Or about the success of Cheney's anti-Iranian tub-thumping?
