You really think the workers are arabs?
They only finance the building.

But it is an impresive building,
How is it protected from an airplane?

UAE doesn't intend to invade Afghanistan nor Iraq

That's how it's protected

No logic was invoked in the justification.
The standard answer is "They just hate America."
But then why did Iraq invade Kuwait and Iran invade Iraq or vice versa ?

Logic ? Far from it.

Architects in America have to deal with budgets and zoning and safety rules and realities that the architects in many countries don't necessarily have to deal with.

We already have too many "big" buildings. Time for efficient, smart buildings. Or finally utilize the networks that we have built so more people can use less resources and not be so centralized where these buildings are required. The net CAN be used for things other than porn.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
