I think it's wonderful the Saudi government officials are building a tower to match the size of it's king's giant ego.

Well I suppose architectural preference is subjective....so you have the right to think that.

Although I would tend to disagree. It has a very appropriate context to the surroundings. Frankly I dont really care that it towers over the grand mosque and is 'offensive' to the area. I think it will spur further dense development in the city. Density is the way to go, man.

The reason he called you "troll" because of your nonsense comment about King Abdullah, there's a difference between NOT likeing the skyscraper and insulting a king

You don't sound like you know much about the stallinism, let alone Soviet history. Why would this building suit better in DPRK? Do you even know its purpose? And fyi, King Abdullah and all others are only a mere servants to Allah so all they build and achieve is for Allah's glory.

One good thing to come out of man's age old obsession with religion is the stunningly beautiful churches, mosques etc. built to glorify some non existent god. Sadly this monstrosity doesn't fall into that category.
