    I wonder if some Christians trained in US terrorist camps will move to Saudia Arabia, live among the people, hatch a plan to hijack a plane and fly it into this building? Oh wait, Saudia Arabia doesn't allow infidels into their country and we don't do shit like that anyway. Never mind.

    Saudi Arabia plans world’s tallest tower - FT.com

    Saudi Arabia’s Prince Alwaleed bin Talal’s investment vehicle, Kingdom Holding, has announced that an associate company will partner with the country’s Bin Laden Group to build a tower near Jeddah that would replace Dubai’s 828m Burj Khalifa as the world’s tallest building.

    The associate company, Jeddah Economic Co, signed the SR4.6bn ($1.23bn) contract with the Bin Laden Group, a construction company, that will also own a 16.63 per cent stake in the company. Kingdom Co will hold 33.35 per cent.

    The 1km-tall building will include a Four Seasons hotel and apartments, luxury condominiums and offices. The tower is the first phase of the 5.3m square metre Kingdom City development to be built north of the Red Sea city of Jeddah, according to a statement on the Saudi bourse, Tadawul.........

    Makes no difference. It's impossible for a jumbo jet to take down ANY relatively modern hi-rise. Rebuild a couple floors and start back up.

    The story won't open for me. Is this the same prince who had his name written in the dessert, so big it could be seen from space?

    Well son of a gun. It opened and then it popped up a free registration window in front of the story. When I clicked past it, it went to FT's main page. But to answer your question, no it isn't the same guy.

    Here is a different link.

    Now just a few more flight training centers there in the homeland and they won't have to outsource so much of the next attack.

    Dubai makes bid to be City of Gold
    Jan 5,`13 -- Dubai is sometimes called the "City of Gold" because of its stunning growth from a sleepy Gulf port to a world-famous business crossroads in the space of a single generation. Its nickname has a literal meaning for traders in the precious metal.

    The modern Arab world:

    You have seen those architectural wonders of Dubai. However, none are hooked up to a sewer system!

    The two minute video below passes a line of poop trucks and never gets to the end of the line. What were these people thinking? Unbelievable amount of sewage generated by the new high-rises & no place to dispose of it. Camel sense seems about right!

    Dubai doesn't have a sewage system for all those big new buildings so they haul it all away. Look at the number of tank trucks that are waiting to dump their load. This is amazing. They wait for days.

    You would have thought that by building all those huge skyscrapers they would have enough sense to put in a sufficient sewage system to haul away all that crap. Obviously, not everything you see above ground that looks amazingly beautiful isbuilt on a well-planned system of utilities.
