Posts here are appalling,I am surprised at what i am reading. The level of apathy to those who have been killed. How many people did U.S kill in the Vietnam war again ? Should i use that comparison to 9/11 and say "revenge". Or are the killing of hundreds and thousands of people after 9/11 as direct consequence of US occupation of M.E Irrelevant ? I don't get it, whats the logic here ?
The Saudi Binladin Group (SBG), run by Osama bin Laden’s brother, has been banned from taking on new work, and will have its current projects reviewed, at the behest of Saudi King Salman, following the deadly Mecca crane collapse last week which killed 107 people.
According to official state mouthpiece, the Saudi Press Agency, which cited government investigators, SBG was “partly responsible for the accident” and “had not respected the rules of safety.”
King Salman has announced that the families of all fatally wounded victims, as well as those who received permanent disabilities will be compensated with 1 million riyals ($267,000) and those with treatable injuries will be given half of that sum.

If you don't get that kind of weather in the area, then you don't get that kind of weather.
I live in landlocked areas, should we plan all our construction around hurricanes? And if someday a freak hurricane does happen ... should we blame people for not building with hurricanes in mind?
