Yes supporting is one thing, I've never heard of a vote that didnt have support. Supporting and voting are two completly different things, but then again, good luck.

Aha, but i didn't say anything about any announcement of support, what i posted is strict politics, If Australia gets the world cup, most of Qatar railways wouldn't be needed and the German company will loose a great deal, and this is just an example, i don't think these guys could refuse government orders, and as you said he "supported Australia's bid" but he didn't say who he will vote for.

mate franz beckenbauer is not the german government and germany is not a state in which the actual government (not the football federation) would tell a person to vote for a particular team, and if the german football federation did tell beckenbauer on who to vote for, it wouldnt be because of a railway which doesn't affect the football federation (who gets the vote) in the absolute slightest

PR and politics matter but only if you've got a sound technical bid in the first place. There are so many question marks over Qatar's bid that I don't see how railways make even a slight difference to their chances.

Incidentaly, you said:

So you're building a railway system only for the world cup? Really?

Oh, God. Seriously parcdesprinces ? the only reference to Religion/Race i made was explaining some issues to do with drinking... so please, dont play the race/religion card here.

-----------

Finance is amazingly open, Full government backing. Security is very good, Qatar is politically stable, we have helped Lebanon peace, it helping to settle problems in Darfur/Sudan and is mediating border rows between Eritrea and Djibouti. I don't think thats a bad sign if not good.
Infrastructure is going to be amazing, Public transport at its maximum, Taxi's, Buses, Water Taxis and Metro.

He isnt talking about you, but about a post made earlier today by kosova-fener, post #738, on page 37, he said people where negative because Qatar has muslims, we tried to explain that that isnt true.

And we could have avoided the entire conversation by just ignoring

BTW, Doha is bidding for the 2020 Olympics as well. but until December this year all focus will be on the World Cup bid. Qatar is a leading sports movement in the middle east and a World Cup / Olympics should give it a boost

No, It wasn't about your posts... BTW the alcohol card is more funny than others to me (mais je n'en pense pas moins )!

For those of you that might be wondering if there is anything to do in Qatar.....

Lusail & Lagoon

Part of it is Qatar Entertainment City, other than the theme parks it will have several shopping districts and its right next to Lusail International Circuit and the Lusail National stadium (86K) which will host the finals, it will have connections to metro and people mover networks. Lusail used to be an important fishing village in the far past. The Pearl Qatar is also near by.





(The Pearl, Qatar)



Heart of Doha

Doha Port stadium (43,500) would be situated near Doha's old area, Souq Waqif which is an amazing shopping/heritage area with traditional looking buildings and even a fort is near by in addition to the Museum of Islamic Arts, Qatar National Museum and Musheirb which includes shopping areas and cultural areas.

(Musheirb)


(Museum of Islamic Arts)


(Qatar National Museum)


(Souq Waqif)



(Al-Koot Fort)


Aspire Zone


The centerpiece Khalifa Stadium which will be 70,000 for 2022 World Cup is right next to 2 malls (Villaggio and Hyatt Plaza) one of them has IMAX cinemas, also another icon is the Aspire Sports Dome, Aspire academy and of course our one and only Aspire Tower which held the Asian Olympic Flame in 2006 Asian Games, it will become a hotel as well. Aspire Park one of the largest in the Middle East nicknamed "Doha's Hyde Park" is adjacent to the site. It will have direct connections to the Metro.

(Aspire Zone overview)



Al-Gharraffa

This area is booming right now with construction of malls, it already has one (Landmark) but is set to get 4 more. The area will have numerous connections to the Metro. Al-Gharrafa Stadium is nearby.

(North Gate Mall)
