Your link accuses Israel of atrocities.Did I miss something or didn't hezbollah start this fight?!And what about the people of Lebanon?They allowed hezbollah to set up shop and operate in their country while being armed and funded by Iran and Syria.So who is the REAL culprit here?The people who responded to an attack against themselves or those who actually started it and then hid behind civilians as is the chicken shit hezbollah way?

Today's justice :

Capture 2 "Soldiers"(not killing them) = "Kill" 1000 civilians

any arguments on that?

it's a shame the building is this thin. statistically it will be the wtb, but i don't think it will be that impressive. the top half of the building will be more like a tv tower. why is dubai focusing so heavily on tourism? all you're gonna get is old, over-tanned, rich westerners stocking up the fat on their behinds. it just proves that real cities develop over a long period of time and cannot be built from scratch. for us skyscraperfans it's great to watch this, sure, but dubai should put the brakes on this development in order to avoid being the new disneyland for lame people without any taste.

surely dubai has it's charms (is the old harbour with the dows still there?), but i fear that they will all be bulldozed in the next years. if i am wrong, can anyone provide some insight in the goverment's true vision for the city?

I agree this subject doesn't belong here.Bottom line is hezbollah started it.Now they have to deal with the consequences.And you didn't respond to the FACT lebanon allowed it to happen-allowed iran and syria to fund this,so they get whatever they get.Alls fair in love and war.

Think again about the prestige behind this building for why it not be necessary for everybody to fully know its usage, would be my guess.

it was only lev61 the other day and now ev64? maybe they put up numbers of floors a tad early. this happened a couple of weeks ago.
anyway 64 floors= 243m/800ft!
