I haven't got time to give an in depth response to Murray's challenge (see below), so this will have to do for the moment.

Leaving aside all the other arguments for why the Bush administration's call for US companies to relocate from Britain is surprising, there is one very good reason, and it is a reason which should appeal to the logic that you impute to the Bushies. The reason is that if US companies were to heed this call, the outcome would be bad for America. When two nations trade and invest in each other both sides benefit. When one withdraws, they both suffer. Simple as that.
