Well with the rivers of oil and $$$ in Iraq, is it impossible? Maybe not. I'd like to see it happen to give countries like the US a kick in the ass when it comes to building taller.

This is a hell of a tower, but it also seems a bit daydreamly...

This is a pipe dream and will never been build like in the renders. Like GulfArabia said, no one would invest such money in a desolate war destroyed country.

With a booming economy nevertheless... unrest is concentrated in the north. And let us hope this will change dramatically in the upcoming years.

UAE (Dubai) is a special case in the Gulf Region, no country is like it! Definitely not Iraq ... this thread should be titled vision anyways.

while not to this extend, Kuwait, Doha, Riyadh are all cities in the region that also build really crazy designed towers and certainly show some similarities to Dubai. And Jeddah is currently the world's tallest building in a gamble that reminds me of when Dubai did it. So I wouldn't say the UAE is totally different.

When you visit them and then visit Dubai you will understand what I mean .. they are extremely different in many aspects .. I can't explain in details here cz it will be way out of topic but Jeddah is no where Dubai is .. when BK was under construction, many other megaprojects were as well in Dubai, while Jeddah can barely finish that tower. Even ruling family wise, UAE has THE smartest and best rulers of the Middle east. All this is only the shell of the differences and I am only scratching the surface, I can write pages about this matter.
