I always wonder why the wealthy are flocking to a moral backwater not much better than saudi arabia. Sure there are beautiful glittering buildings but it's mostly filled with backwards religious ideologues.

You never really hear about the wealthy falling victim to these shenanigans though.  I assume that if you have enough money they look the other way.

There is enough money to get me to visit the UAE. It's not a rediculously large sum, but it is a higher sum than I would ever be offered and my behavior will best be described as laconic.

When one of the men presented the woman with a birthday present, she hugged him.

Sex for money, hugs for gifts, same thing.

Something like 90% of their population are foreign workers, like this woman. They functionally don't have any rights under law there.

The thing about the "puritans" is that you can tell what it is they really want or have a fetish about, based on how much they want to control it or make it go away.

I know you are referring to the middle east in general, but Dubai has (virtually) no oil. This is why they started Emirates and have built themselves into a weird mix of a mall, Las Vegas, Chinese Ghost City, and "tourist" "attraction" with such things as an indoor ski slope.

You are thinking of Abu Dhabi, the one that bailed out Dubai and forced them to rename Burj Al-Dubao, the worlds largest penis building, after their Emir, Burj Al-Khalifa.

There is plenty of booze there. Lot's of clubs and pubs. There is more to the middle-east than Saudi.

Saudis go to Dubai, Bahrain, Cairo, Beirut etc etc to sin.They're a PITA: the world's worst tourists.

I used to hate UAE, until I visited KSA.   Just saying.  There is no comparison.  You feel the human oppression in the air in KSA.

The place is not filled with 'backwards religious ideologues '-- really.  If you spend any time there, you quickly realize that UAE is built largely on expat slave labor, and they simply need to be controlled.  It is no different than the class warfare that exists in the US, with a militarized police state protecting the wealth of the rich, or the US legacy involving overt slavery.

With me it's that or that we're closely related. Or both.

The last hug I got was from my 17 year old niece as I was leaving. Last July. As if that wasn't sappy enough she patted my chest and said "You can come back." Given that for 10 years the kid was afraid of this strange old man who showed up every few years to spend a week drinking and snoring in the basement family room that meant a lot. (Sheltered little suburban girls are supposed to be afraid of gnomes and ogres anyway, right?)

By the way, the cheapest 100 proof vodka in the Liquor Barn Express is a good excuse to drink Jumex "nectars." Maybe tomorrow I'll buy Mexican Coca Cola to kill it with. They should pay me $7.49 to choke this down "neutral spirit."

CSM101: Oh. It's the UAE. And I was all set to be surprised by this.


Yeah that was my take - missed the UAE when first read it and had to go back to work out where this happened.

UAE is still one of the biggest downloaders of porn and esp. gay porn on the planet.  Repressing your population does not bode well for your population's ability to think.

I will say again "We should not being having trade with these countries!" and that includes our local nationally registered companies - leave them to their backwater of history and please stop pretending they are even remotely "cool" and "hip" that is just the backwash from them spending millions on marketing firms.

Arumat: Alright, but that just brings me back to my original question.  Why the hell are we allied with these asshats?


If something ships out of India/China/SE Asia and doesn't go across the Pacific, it doesn't get shipped to Europe/the East Coast in the same ship it left I/C/SEA in.  It gets swapped out.  Wanna take 3 guesses as to where said swapping takes place?

This is also why Somali pirates are a problem.  If you just left I/C/SEA and wanted to round the Cape, you would steam across the Indian Ocean.  But if you are going to transfer stuff in the UAE, the west-bound ship getting to the Cape runs within piratin' range of Somalia.  And before you ask, it is more profitable to run 3-5 trips back and forth from Asia to the UAE than it is to run one trip to NYC from Mumbai.

tl:dr If you want cheap goods from Asia (and there is a lot of stuff you get from Asia), then you have to be friends with asshats.  This has been true since 1497

Yeah and that is the deeper story that most people, who bearly get time to think, do not get time to ponder.

The real daily players in the game of life seem to be almost absent from the day to day media.  If you only have 30 minutes to catch up on the news each day, then you are being 'fed' news ... you do not have the time to 'find' news.

The thinking processes of the people who work for the mega-corps (or are just billionaires themselves) are absent from the daily discussion and yet they have the biggest effects on what the daily discussion will be in a month or two.  Why journalist do not follow the CEO's and the megarich everywhere they go amazes me (well until I remember who owns the media), when peeps have 30 minutes at most to become informed they prefer to hear stories about rare evils and the daily lives of the glitterclass.

No idea how we can change this - but I have faith that it will (probably after a huge amount of pain :(

Alcohol is widely available in the UAE. So is porn on the internet.

Been to the UAE more times than i even want to think about on deployment, never had a problem and never saw anyone have any problems that they didn't make for themselves. Same basic rule applies there that applies everywhere else, don't be an asshat and make a spectacle of yourself and everything will be fine.

I am sorry, I was unclear.  "Cheap" as in "not ass-clinchingly expensive because of transport-related costs", not "cheap" as in "Dollar Store reject" - which isn't to say there isn't overlap i the two, just that I meant the first.
