Miladassaf- So do I- But sadly I don't think it will ever happen! As long as politics, religion and greed exsist I don't see how the world will ever be peaceful- sadly.

I wish you a peaceful new year Mildassaf xxx

I would be more worried if such a plan wasn't in place.

Planners have realised they had to tear up existing emergency plans for local British residents. Since the previous review in the 1990s, the expatriate population has grown to more than 100,000 in the UAE alone, while a million British tourists, from businessmen on stopovers to England footballers with marital problems, come to Dubai every year.

and they think this is of some relevance?

I remember before the 1990 Gulf War a number of people I knew bought 4x4's so they could head out across the sand for Oman!!

I can just imagine the GCA ("General Council of Ayatollahs") discussing this:

"Look, we need to agree a date on which to attack Dubai."
"Well, when is Wayne Rooney going to be there.......?"

Like everything else in that paper, it's all constructed piece-by-piece from molecules of shit.

Notice the photo? Notice the 'emirati' man on the camel? Yeah, coz that's the kind of mistake a journalist makes right?

True. When I posted that story on Facebook, one of my flatmates who recently moved back to the UK said "Hey, look. It's camel man!".
