I dont get it, we have one troll claiming to be Bangladeshi, so that leads to Bangladesh as a country being bashed?

MB doesnt show any affinity to Bangladesh, nor does he post news related to my country, so why do we have to use his posts as a chance to criticize Bangladesh ?

I would say the blood money system shares part of the blame. When people can get away with paying 200,000 dhs depending on their status/connections, its not surprising to see such cases. The message is "if you are rich, you can run over anyone and just pay a small fine" Another factor to b...

Police officials have themselves admitted that Emiratis between 18-25 are most likely to kill others. From personal experience, the mentioned category along with some truck drivers (mostly Pakistanis) are dangerous. Some Arab expats also drive as if they have psychological issues

Re: NYU in UAE

The NYU is a reasonably ranked private university in the US, not one of the major players by any way...

An important question is whether they will offer need blind admission, as top US private schools do, or will the Abu Dhabi campus be simply a cashcow ?

There is a particular attitude towards animal abuse which I find a bit dusturbing...... If an animal is abused, (e.g. cats thrown from cars, dogs beaten), and someone points it out, a very popular reply is "Children and innocents are being killed in Country X, and you are talking about animals ...

The Brits can be kicked out. In fact all Westerners can be sacked. If UAE needs it, it can employ other Arab nations or brotherly countries' nationals as first priority followed by Japan or such advanced countries with friendly ties. The problem is UAE didndt ask for your advice, nor will it take t...

Re: Worst Drivers in Dubai

"Most of the drivers for buses, trucks, tankers and other commercial vehicles are Pakistani and they are the one involved in most number of fatal accidents." . That makes more sense than the sensationalist headline :) The problem lies with many commercial drivers, (and the Andrew Blairs) ...
