World's tallest building coming to Saudi Arabia


www.msnbc.msn.com

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — Saudi Arabia unveiled plans Tuesday to build the world's tallest tower — a mixed-use structure that will rise two-thirds of a mile high — in the Red Sea port city of Jeddah.

Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal signed a $1.23 billion contract with Bin Laden Group for the proposed tower, which will take just over five years to complete. The building is the centerpiece of the planned Kingdom City development being built outside Jeddah by Prince Alwaleed's Kingdom Holding.

You read that right: the next attempt to construct the world's tallest building is funded by a Saudi prince and is to be constructed by the Bin Laden Group.

It's no secret that the Bin Laden family is big in the construction business. Perhaps there is a connection to Osama Bin Laden himself?

I have learned before that a lot of the bundles of cash that the Americans gave to Afghan warlords to win them over during the initial Afghanistan invasion ended up funding construction megaprojects in the UAE (such as the Palm Island). I wonder if the money trail is similar here.

I would say it is ironic that the Bin Laden family is building a skyscraper, but that would only be the case had a member of the Bin Laden family been responsible for the destruction of one.

How dumb do you feel when you're wasting money in wars and bankrupting the world's economy when the people that attacked you announce they're interested in building the tallest building in human history.

Saudi Arabia says - Thank you.
