i appreciate we all look at money and Oil to pay for this - what is their gold intake like? If they are behind the "Cash for Gold" adverts then it makes sense

Just to add to the synchromystic/occult strangeness, Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Emir of Dubai and the man lauded as the visionary, driving force and ultimate arbiter behind development there, lost his first born son, the Crown Prince, from a heart attack at age......33.

For me its a massive failure waiting to happen, a man made oasis built on a desert by people with too much money to comprehend but driven by a fanatical code to be seen as the epitome of brilliance and technological supremacy being managed by men who buy gold cars they then crash trying to drift race across the desert.

Basically its like children at Xmas all year around for them yet eventually the debt collectors will come and it will be a massive failure, a fallacy, a folly and a historical proof of how slavery still went on undisturbed for reasons of greed..
No more with there be gold vending machines and cheetahs for pets......These men disturb me...


Disturbing it is alright, but there is a few things to take on board. First the city is on the coast, that's an attraction for the plebs no bother, then there are the islands and all the apartments. A lot of people it seems have bought their island. The apartments though, unlike the Chinese Ghost cities, are mostly bought up, but by people who never live in them, in a word by Mafia, thought to be mostly Russian Mafia.
These cities are money pits, and I would say a lot of the money apart from drug revenue, is money diverted from the great globalisation plan by crooked banksters, and God knows who, but we'll probably never hear the real story about that, and the banking crashes over the last nine years.

They save money, for one thing, by using slaves to build all those structures. Years ago when it started going up and up there was an article in Vanity Fare about how they advertised in Pakistan needing workers. Many, many came, some using their life savings to make the trip. These were poor people.

When they got there, they were not allowed to leave. There were pictures of them loading into buses after a dawn to dusk work day, being taken to their camp 'quarters".

I wish I had kept that article, but I gave that magazine to a friend to read on the plane while he was on his way to Dubai.

Of course the journalist wasn't allowed to interview any of them, but managed to talk to one of them for a few minutes. The Pakistani guy told them they were being paid almost nothing, and it was impossible to leave. They were all wanting to go as it was nothing like it had been represented. He said they considered themselves enslaved, and the work itself was incredibly difficult, with many sustaining injuries on a daily basis.

eta: I posted without reading the thread. I will go do that now. It looks very interesting. S&F.



Putting the interesting nature of the buildings aside, I think what you said is important too. The ultra rich building these interesting structures have no compassion toward anyone.

So.. Why would any of this be for "disclosure"? They clearly don't care about anybody but themselves.

This thread has been an interesting read though. Dubai is very interesting and has beautiful architecture. It's too bad that it is a playground for the ultrarich, and a slavepit for the poor.

One of the links on this thread said they had at least at one point, turned the sewage into the open ocean, and everything that can be flushed (condoms, sanitary pads along with the usual human excrement) was floating on the water near the shore, and washing up on the shore to the point people were getting eye infections, ear infections, and all manner of illness until they had to warn them to stay out.

Apparently an American woman, an employee in one of the hotels kept reporting it, and was told not to say another word about it. However, after repeated illnesses from guests they could no longer ignore it, and said they have found the 'trucks' who were doing this, and would stop it and fine them.

Just yuck.

What in the world is going on in Dubai? I always understood that they have a helluva lot of money. Of course it's oil, right? RIGHT? Maybe... Or not. I came across this blog post that peaked my interest like no conspiracy has in a long while. I read it, I re-read it. I showed it to my friend, I googled the heck out of Dubai. We were both dumbstruck by all the weirdness/coincidences and we can't come up with a rational theory beyond gross excess. A play ground for the Super Elite. But with oil crashing and some conjecture that the world economy is on the brink again, not to mention the precarious state of the Middle East...Dubai keeps growing.




secretsun.blogspot.com...




The city-state of Dubai, part of the United Arab Emirates, is one of the great puzzles of our time. Why did a sprawling metropolis that looks like like it stepped out of a Star Wars movie spring out of an obscure strip of sand in the Persian Gulf, practically overnight? Given that Dubai itself has little in the way of oil wealth, who paid for it all?

How does a city that is perpetually mired in debt continue not only to expand but to expand in ways that make the rest of the world's great cities look like provincial backwaters?

When oil was trading at 100 dollars a barrel and up you could see the logic. Maybe. But with the current oil crash showing no signs of ending anytime soon you have to wonder, where is the money coming from?

Sure, you can see the need for a hub in that part of the world, a city-state for global corporations doing business with the wealthy oil monarchies of the Gulf and an international airport for flights connecting from Europe to points farther east.

But that doesn't quite explain Dubai.


There is way more at the link. Including conjecture about the Annunaki, some ancient God/Alien, Oannes.




More certain is the history of this area, and the strange, enigmatic figure that entered the record via one Berossus, who wrote what was then the definitive history of Babylon.

Berossus told of a figure named Oannes, who made his home in the Persian Gulf and came ashore every day to instruct mankind in the arts of civilization. This is one of those episodes in the historical record when something completely insane is recounted entirely soberly, as if it were long accepted as truth. But to our eyes Oannes, who is often identified with the Philistine god Dagon, can only be described as "alien."

At Babylon there was (in these times) a great resort of people of various nations, who inhabited Chaldæa, and lived in a lawless manner like the beasts of the field. In the first year there appeared, from that part of the Erythræan sea which borders upon Babylonia, an animal destitute of reason, by name Oannes, whose whole body (according to the account of Apollodorus) was that of a fish; that under the fish's head he had another head, with feet also below, similar to those of a man, subjoined to the fish's tail.




Really hoping some of the Ancient Civilization contributors can chime in with more on that. Is it just a coincidence that this is the historical background of the area?

So I put it to you ATS, what's going on there? Why are they building a hermetically sealed dome environment? Why do they keep building state of the art structures despite a very low occupancy rate? Who are they building all of this for if there is so much empty space? Why were the fireworks for a huge casino opening only visible from space? Why are they building islands in shapes visible only from the sky, like the Palm Islands or the World Islands?



What are they preparing for? How are they able to pay for all of this and yet the most powerful country in the world, the USA, can't manage to fill pot holes or take care of our vets? Is this where the world's money is flowing to? Why?

Are there any ATS members who reside in Dubai or have visited there? What is your take on it? What's really going on in Dubai?






Heres an idea...why dont you read something other than conspiracy sites and blogs. Because if you did, you would know that the reason Dubai is building all these huge things and big attractions is to attract tourists since they know their oil will run out.

Not everything is a conspiracy. They have a lot of money and are building future investments. You would also know that they almost went broke and have been bailed out by Abu Dhabi.

Personaly, even though im from the Middle East, i have no desire to go there. But make no mistake, the deserts of the ME are fantastic places to visit. I grew up in Saudi Arabia and have nothing but fond memories. The people AND the deserts. No, im not muslim.

There are a lot of drugs in Dubai. Mostly done by the sheikhs and others higher up, so i would not be suprised.

Criminal capitol of the world, built with slave labor & profits from the Iraq missing pallets & the "War on Terror". You know all those shadowy figures you complain of messing up your world, well this is their playground, where anything is legal if you have the cash.


That's basically it in a nutshell.

Recently, it has become one of THE places to go if you are rich and famous, and want to escape from all the attention, etc. Slave labor, diverted war funds, diverted contracts, etc. are all behind it. Drugs, arms dealers, international criminals and cartels, you name it. Basically how Vegas was built.

As for the rise of Dubai, I can't really say.

But reading your linked blog post (which was interesting), I noticed that it mentioned that a lot of money is going to Qatar as well as Dubai...some of that money also seems to be going to Bahrain as well, because if you haven't noticed before, they're also doing a lot of man-made islands off of the coasts of that island. I circled the most obvious man-made islands and coastal manipulations to prove that point, as building up these islands cannot be very cheap.


Bahrain has been determined by some to be the location of the Garden of the Gods, although to be fair, it has also been determined to be elsewhere (or in multiple locations).

But taking this possibility into account, we must note that Oannes is equated to being the same entity as the Mesopotamian Annunaki god/ruler Enki (alluded to in your linked blog post, but not directly noted). On Bahrain, there are the ruins of the Barbar Temple, dating back to at least 5,000 years. From that link:

It is thought that the temples were constructed to worship the god Enki, the god of wisdom and freshwater...



But I guess "it is thought" is different than conclusive evidence, so take that with a grain of salt.

My point being that, concerning the reason that you posted this OP and blog to which you linked, there is obvious ancient reverence and worship paid to Enki/Oannes in this area, and it could be that the grand opening of the Atlantis resort on Palm Island could have just paid tribute to that instead of being a clue to the reason that they are building up a city (and a domed city within that city) in the middle of nowhere. But then again, maybe it wasn't.

That's why I like threads like this.

Keshe Foundation is preparing Peace Event in Dubai in April... maybe there is really a bigger picture we are not seeing...


I fully agree with this. I am excited to see how that conference goes now that daily testimonials are coming in positive with great results for Keshe's devices and blueprints given to the world. His textbooks are truly enlightening beyond modern physics and string theory.

Is interesting that what is now known as the hub for the wealthy and influenced in the middle east is nothing but build on the sweat of slaves labor from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Many think that is nothing but a city build of sand and while its a picture of luxury and decadent wealth behind the scenes is a city full of debt.


Dubai, one of seven emirates in the UAE, received another five years to repay the loan at a 1% annual interest rate. Dubai owes a total of $142 billion in debt, equivalent to 102% of its gross domestic product, according to the International Monetary Fund. Some $35 billion of the total belongs to the government or is guaranteed by the government. About $60 billion comes due between 2013 and 2017, according to the IMF.


guardianlv.com...

Some financial experts believe that Dubai will collapse on its own debt and eventually their buildings will host refugees from the middle east.

But for now is a lot of money to keep it alive and going, perhaps that is why pushing Dubai to become a preferred place for global activism in order to generate income.

The elite just took what the mafia did with Vegas and ran with it. It's a giant billboard for rampant consumerism mixed with the vapid and sickening pretence of religious piety, the reality is its soulless, empty and all of the worst possible traits of humanity are embedded into it.

You couldn't pay me enough to go there.

I honestly am afraid I would accidentally break some law and wind up in jail. It's all so confusing, and I'm afraid I wouldn't know right from wrong, or acceptable behavior. Especially being a woman. Too much risk.

The gold vending machine is particularly interesting, as all the ancient alien stuff revolves around the aliens needing gold and having humans mine it for them. Sooo...

Maybe the aliens are coming back, and Dubai will be their earth city, and maybe they use gold for something very common and important.

Or rich folks are just looney.

Its no place for any sensible, well adjusted human but I can imagine it would be especially oppressive for women.

I used to know an architect that designed houses for rich Arabs out there. A large proportion of them would request a windowless room in the middle of the property where slaves/wives/kids could be be taken to and beat without anybody hearing. It's a horrifically sick place underneath all the shiny plastic modernity.
