He became president in 2004 - but suffered a stroke and had emergency surgery a decade later and stopped being involved in the day-to-day affairs of ruling the country.

He might of lived a little longer if they had done the surgery right after his stroke.

The important question is, did he figure out how to take it all with him?

This is actually pretty big news and the fact that it can make the headlines in the US during an active coup by Russian-backed Republican domestic terrorists in the US is quite alarming and it means we aren't teaching enough anti-crt.

So I was living in Dubai around the time that was being built.

It was originally called the Burj Dubai while it was going up, then the global economy went down the drain and Dubai was gonna go bankrupt.

Abu Dhabi, the wealthiest Emirate, bailed Dubai out, and evidently part of the deal was that the Burj Dubai would be named Burj Khalifa, after Sheikh Khalifa of Abu Dhabi.

At first I thought 13 minutes was too long to watch, but that was worth it.

"Oh, no. These are American style suburbs.....
A 12-lane arterial road, Jesus Christ!....
Dubai's urbanism in general is just complete bonkers...

By the way, did you know that only 10% of the Emirate's population is Emirati? The other 90% being immigrants and ex-pats, well actually they're all immigrants it's just that white people came up with the word 'ex-pats' so they don't have to call themselves immigrants abroad because that word is reserved for brown people...."

During the last few years of his life, his half-brother, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed, became the de-factor ruler and decision-maker of major foreign policy decisions, like joining the Saudi-led war in Yemen and leading an embargo on Qatar in the past few years.

No details were announced about the nature of Sheikh Khalifa's death or about who will replace him but Sheikh Mohammed is widely expected to claim the presidency.

Welcome the UAE's new President.  Now kneel before Zod.

That picture is of Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum of Dubai, the current the Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

His daughter, Sheikha Fatima Rashed Al Maktoum, is the one that owns the orangutan.

The new president of the UAE is Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan of Abu Dhabi , not Dubai.
