Terminal vs. Port vs. Berth

As you know the Dubai Ports World Co. is looking to buy P&O. Look for yourself how many terminals and berths P&O operates in the U.S. Their website is here. Here is an example:

According to the P&O Website, P&O operates 1 terminal in New York City with 7 berths. According to the NY Port Authority website, this terminal is for cruise ships only. The terminal is one among a dozen other terminals in NY.

P&O operates roughy 10 terminals at 6 U.S. ports. Compare this to the 3000 terminals and 350+ ports in the United States.

UPDATE: Air Marshall directs us to this article which points out why Congress is not in charge of Security.
