Start an argument? No, of course not. Where the fuck did you get that from?

I think you mean Burj al 'Arab. Yeah, awesome indeed. They're also planning to build the world's tallest skyscraper in UAE, the Burj Dubai.

Probably UAE. Without a lot of Jews there, they don't seem to blow themselves up as much.

I'd live at UAE. They tend to pay top dollar for medical field employment

If I was to live in the UAE, I'd get a tan, grow a beard, and wear robes. Hell, maybe even walk on water to scare the locals.

The U.A.E., because I lived there for 6 1/2 years and nowhere else in the world compares.

Neither. I've been to the UAE (Dubai, Abu Dhabi) and, while it was okay to visit, I wouldn't want to live there.
