US President Bush 'impressed' with Dubai's growth

Lines of motorists found themselves stuck close to Ras Al Khor industrial zone.

Traffic was held for almost six hours at the Nad Al Sheba area due to road blocks.

due to the visit of some American clown, Bush. Why the f*** is Dubai letting that idiot into their magnificent country ?? You should take him to the top of the Burj Dubai and throw the bastard off.





Looking at the two leaders there, I know who I'd put my trust in, and it ain't that inbred retard on the left.

Incredible images see so detailed that it is possible to see to another side, one of the principal income already almost they finish it and the glasses go to an intensive pace.
Someone me podria to say because even they do not place the front of the mechanical floors(flats) if already the frameworks already this.

LOL. Ok

So why do the steel floors take so long to put up? Is there a technical reason, or are they just slow?

Let me think:

- difficulties related to the first floors that require a much much higher precision then the upper floors

- more controls and tests related to the materials

- more difficulties to work in such heights.

Anyway the first floors are always slower then the others, even when you are at ground level.

I'm getting a little tired of the Bush-bashing on every single website.

I mean, no sh**, the guy's a monumental buffoon. Granted. Let's move on.

I'm one of the last people you'll see on this site swear, but dammit guys come on! I'm getting very sick of tired of seeing politics and propaganda spewing up here on an almost daily basis. For goodness sake this thread is about skyscrapers, not Bush, how bad a president he is, etc. I swear if I see anymore of this nonsense this is what I'll do to my account .

PwnedByASkyscraper will have been pwned...by the skyscraper.
