Don't worry, in less than 50 years that place will be a desert again... when the oil runs out.
Exactly. In the near future we will be energy independent and so will Chine and Russia. Only poor countries will need oil from the middle east. And so the amount of money to the oil shieks will slowly dry up. And when it does Dubai and all the other areas like it will turn into desert.
That might be true but it might only be a matter of time when Al Quaida cares about THEM.
I got a feeling that time will come soon.
Their economy is in the shitter. The only reason they aren't bankrupt is bacause Abu Dhabi saved them a couple of times now. I stand corrected by my previous post, by the way. Dubai doesn't have any oil, they rely on tourism. With a global recession going on, they're feeling the pain.
My name was supposed to be French fries with mayo but I was drunk when I signed up.
The funny thing is that the arabs are so stupid that they never could find any oil by them self. They always have to use white people to help them. Arabs have achieved nothing in world history. They were just lucky sitting on some oil.
Cartels are illegal. But somehow OPEC is ok. The oil cartel. Heavy sanctions and taxes against any cartel. Even maybe a couple of cruise missiles at the leaders of OPEC = lower oil prices.
Only thing that works on the arab culture is hitting them hard. Its a Nomad culture...
