I hope France will host in 2016, because they want to host it for long time
and lost opportunities again and again. Everyone thought France would
host the game in 2012, but they were beaten off by London. “How poor are
they...!!!!!

I don't think France will get the Olympics. That's two in a row for the EU, and 2004 was in Athens too. Paris would've made a great host too.

There are just too many more important regions and cities to host the games over Dubai that don't have hte negative connotations of slave labor that Dubai has.

You might think that most of the world will not care but you better beleive that fact is going to be highlighted by other bid cities and organiztiaons and the IOC will way to stay far away from that controversy.

When the oil is depleted, nothing will happen to Dubai because it doesn't depend on oil anymore .
