we all know that while it is arab money being spent building these things the brains behind the buildings are the 'evil westerners'

SO ARROGANT

Why is Dubai doing better managed than almost all of the western cities? It ranked the 3rd highest in the world after singapore and lisbon.

Because its managed by westerns ?

It is true that the city is managed by westerns in a higher level but that doesnt contradict with the fact the the locals are making it happen.

Maybe muslims and arabs should start talking on how backward the western world was and how how the western world wouldnt have its postion without the arabs and muslims.

Too bad that everything has to be the 'biggest' (better? hmm) and most 'tall' and such, in Dubai. They are created a society of material possession when they couldbe doing so much better with that $$$.

You're definitely right there. But most rich countries in the world could spend it in better ways, not just UAE. Anyway, look at this.
