lol if people don't think Qatar can do it, nobody can.

People haven't been following Qatar for the past 5 years. In 5 years Qatar went from nothing, to one of the fastest developing cities in the world.

It took Dubai 25 years, and it took Qatar 5 years to start to catch up.

8 years is more than enough for there to be changes and development.
If you want a spectacular and unbelievably amazing event, vote for Doha.

I will highlight what I just wrote just a few posts above for you.

"Qatar has already said that it will NOT prevent Israel from coming to the Olympics."

Whatever any other country feels is up to them. The final decision goes to the committee and the country who hosts it.

Rio 2016 Launches Bid Logo
Posted 6:02 pm ET (GamesBids.com)

Rio’s logo for its 2016 Summer Olympic Games bid was launched Monday during a Brazil Olympic Award ceremony in Teatro Municipal, Rio de Janeiro.

The event was attended by more than 500 Brazilian Olympic and Paralympic athletes, the Governor of the State of Rio de Janeiro Sergio Cabral, Minister of Sports for Brazil Orland Silva, as well as officials of the Brazilian Olympic and Paralympic Committees and several national federations.

The logo was selected by a jury from among four finalists.

Logo designer Ana Soter said, “the heart-shaped Sugar Loaf represents the unquestionable passion and thrill of Brazilians for sports. The exclamation mark incorporated into number 1 produced a brand that represents perfectly their expectation and excitement for the opportunity to host this edition of the Olympic Games”.

She added that having Rio de Janeiro as her source of inspiration for several years, the shapes of the Sugar Loaf represent the natural riches cariocas are so proud of, and the “proposal” of the logo is to frame the wealth of colours of Rio de Janeiro’s “exuberant nature”.

Carlos Nuzman, President of Brazil’s Olympic Committee and President of Rio 2016 called the logo Emblematic, powerful, noble” and said that it communicates with perfection the natural landscapes of Rio de Janeiro. “in addition, it conveys energy, happiness and also the city’s characteristic of warmly welcoming all different races and cultures, just like Brazilians do. These values express what Rio de Janeiro’s bid to host the 2016 Olympic Games is”, he said.

the logo is average and doesn't communicate the energy and fantastic beauty of Rio. The text "Rio" should be bold and in caps.

Qatar may soon liberal some of its laws which are still happening currently (well slowly). So the outcome might be hard to guess.

Agree with you amnesia, due to the growing economy (and oil and gas) of Qatar, its one of the richest (3rd) country in the world. Yes Qatar is learning Dubai's mistakes and has concern on the environment. Thats another reason Qatar doesn't really want reach Dubai's level of construction. Doha hosted the 15th Asian games in 2006 and had great international praise.

@thaaron, you got that right. That's why a month ago new Traffic laws were imposed. It is VERY strict now and the odds of having an accident have severely decreased.

It originally started because 60% of the country is comprised of expats. Different people from different countries with different driving skills.

Hopefully the new laws which impose hefty fines and the new point system will get rid of the bad drivers ^_^.

But yes, if you go to iLoveqatar.net you'll see that in the safety section that Qatar is much safer than even Japan.
