You know something this disappoints me. The USA used to lead the way on stuff like this and now the same people who lived on camels 80 years ago are now leading us into the future. This isnt a bash on Arabs at all I commend them this is a bash on the state of the good ole US of A. We are no longer the leaders in anything. Hell even basketball in which I though we had that licked for another 50 years we cant even hang anymore.

I dont know its frustrating to me. The sad thing is they are using American universities like MIT to help them with this project. Just goes to show you what you what you can do if you dont take all your wealth and use it to blow up the world. Congrats to the UAE for being a leader.
