The UAE isn't that far fetched, six of the seven Emirates have over 100,000 people.

Never in a million years. Spain/Portugal, England, U.S are the top contenders. Some of these oil rich countries have more money than sense! Even if you decide to build these stadiums what will you do with them after?

Qatar is next to no chance of getting the WC. And Blatter has already ruled out joint bids so there goes the idea of Qatar hosting with another middle eastern country.

Blatter talks out of his arse more than out of his mouth. He changes his mind like hes bi polar. In the past hes declared Oceania should have an automatic spot in the WC, that benelux and spain/portugal should have joint bids, plus a myriad of other decisions which he later over turned.

Besides, sure Qatar can bid, but that dont mean it will get a WC.

Put simply, and putting everything else aside, Qatar doesnt have the infrastructure, doesnt have enough population, and doesnt have enough individual cities to host a WC.
Sorry to rain on your parade. Maybe in the future with joint bids allowed they will have a shot??

A spokesman told Reuters Monday that FIFA would consider joint bids from countries who were not capable of hosting a World Cup on their own.

"If Qatar wins the bid, we'll have more work than the Olympics," he added. "The World Cup is not held in one city, which means we need hotels and stadiums in Al-Khor, Mesaieed, Ras Laffan, Al-Wakrah and Dukhan."

Yes Aka, but there's no suggestion Qatar are going in with other countries. That's not relevent.

Al-Khor, pop. 31k
Mesaieed, pop. 10k
Ras Laffan, pop. * can't locate population *
Al-Wakrah, pop. 31k
Dukhan, pop. * can't locate population *

Are the folks in charge of this bid completely deranged?

As for duel hosting, I believe Blatter's comment the other day was that co-hosting would be accepted if there was no single host bid that satisfied the FIFA executive. In other word, if the England bid is rubbish, and the Russian bid doesn't come up to standard THEN, and only then, with the Dutch/Belgian and Portugese/Spanish bids be considered.

nope, dont see any problems in having stadiums in those cities and towns... Ras Laffan has "a population number" but its still an Industrial city... (our LNG source :P), Dukhan on the other hand is originally an Industrial city but population has rose (roughly 5-10k).

Total population in Qatar as of February 2009 is 1,600,000.......... we have other cities and towns than the listed above.... like Thikhira and Ruwais...

You're too small nation to organize such a tournament.Maybe together with other country from the Persian Gulf will be better.Secondly your law can be a problem.One of the biggest FIFA's sponsor is Budweiser and they will want to sell their beer in your country.As I know alcohol is forbidden in Qatar. I respect your law and your habits but FIFA will not.

No way on earth that they will get the bid... no stadiums, no cities, no football culture, potential trouble with traveling fans and the way they behave (due to cultural difference)... its just too much negative stuff in this bid.

this Qatar's bid is one of the most stupid thing I've heard in my life , and I heard many. what would they do with big stadiums, where would they build it, they would have problems with receiving so many fans, due to high temperatures world cup would be played in winter, so they will never win right to host world cup. biggest chances of Arabic countries has Egypt or maybe Morocco, but hardly. biggest chances of them all has BOSNIA HERZEGOVINA

World cup 2018 will be held in England and 2022 in Indonesia or Australia

yeah, like Ukrainians and Polish did in bid for Euro 2012. Their bid was almost thrown off, and UEFA delayed their decision for 5 months. Then main favorites Croatia and Hungary got 0 votes, Italy got 4 while Pol/Ukr got 8
but this wont happened this time
