u can say "i love this tower",but its not appropriate for you to say it "the world love this tower.because u dont really know how much people love it or hate it.if count base on poll,i dont think so..,maybe love ,but not much as people love petronas.

I'm not an US citizen and I loved them... many people here did. While petronas were barely known at the time.

The point is when some of you say that the only people voting for the WTC are americans because the towers were in America, is extremely ignorant and simply not true. And even if that was the case, the same could be said about Malaysians and the Petronas.

Not really, to find that out you would need to ask every person on earth. Most people from Europe and Asia will simply vote for the Petronas because they dont want to vote for anything American. I can gaurentee if the country's of these two were swapped you would see a different conclusion. I do not live in America but I have my own opinion and I prefer the WTC. They are far more impressive to me. The petronas are beautiful but they were built for show, and simply cant stack up against the better American skyscrapers like the Chrysler.
