i would consider it a serious project but it would at least take 10 yeard to build it.

Kuwait City has, similar to other cities in the middle east, a massive amount of projects in the pipeline.

It just seems to me that the U.A.E. came up with this jig garound the time of the "Freedom Tower" probably as a way to show the U.S. that Arabs reign supreme in building the tallest building. Which is fine with me. But, still it might not happen. Long time coming ya know. Lots could happen.

Not true at all. This tower was a vision for several years before anything actually happened with it. The original idea for a worlds tallest building in Dubai would date back to the mid-late ninties or even further back I'd imagine.

Don't knock the world's 2nd tallest tower. It's designed by SOM and it's well u/c.

Dubai shows the world

Yeah. Perhaps. Perhaps not. Dubai will be a ghost city once the oil drys up. But still why not? It's a ego thing for the Arabs; Dabai, the Middle East Las Vegas. Let it happen. Or not happen. Will it be there in ten years? Perhaps not.

This building is being constructed with slave labor. Already the slave revolts. Not a good sign. Is it a tower of babel? Is it a labor of slaves? Let's think about whether this is an event that should happen. It's on the backs of the poor.

Where the hell do these dumbasses keep coming from. I guess the US education system (excluding universities ofcourse) keeps pumping them out in the masses. For like the billiont time dubai doesnt depend on oil. Go do some research before you talk otherwise your just setting yourself up to look like a dumbass.

What the ****'s Dabai?

We have already endlessly discussed the labour issue. If you want to talk about it look for the thread(s) in the UAE forum. Anyway, I wonder which user you actually are since these are the only posts you've made in the entire forum.
BTW, at the rate things are going down at the WTC site Freedom tower won't even get to be America's tallest. Fordham spire is a much more magnificent building btw that deserves the title more I think
I'm not saying the freedom tower sucks. It's good but just not great
