The UAE is a business partner of the U.S., not ?a staunch, reliable, anti-Iran US ally.? The UAE proclaims itself to be neutral in the fight against terrorism.

Although the UAE sometimes thwarts Iran by seizing ships with weapons, the fight against terrorism would stand a better chance were it not for the UAE.
