Dubai is doomed for failure: over 1,000,000 mistreated migrant workers, building boom that is not supported by demand, city planning blunders, human development level on par with Eastern Europe, and limited freedom for not only the migrant workers & expats but also the few people there who are actually emirati. They put up a nice facade but when you actually veer off the beaten track you find that the "real dubai" is seen in the filth of residential Deira & the migrant worker shanties.

Did anybody hear the recent story about the pregnant lady in Dubai?

A pregnant woman (a foreigner) was driving in Dubai and was rear-ended. The jolt caused her to lose her unborn child.

So what happens? The courts charge HER with MANSLAUGHTER even though the accident wasnt her fault. Oh, and she was found guilty and fined.

Ohhhhhh Dubai. My disdain continues.
