Abu Dhabi and Dubai: Dueling Headlines

From The Times: Abu Dhabi rides in to rescue Dubai from debt crisis

And from the Telegraph: Abu Dhabi will not race to Dubai's rescue

Actually both stories are pretty much the same. From The Times article:

An Abu Dhabi official said yesterday it would “pick and choose” how to assist its neighbour, a hint that the restructuring of Dubai’s debts may not be straightforward. “We will look at Dubai’s commitments and approach them on a case-by-case basis,” the official said. “It does not mean that Abu Dhabi will underwrite all their debts.”
Clearly Abu Dhabi will ride, but not race, to the rescue.
