    It's nice to know that someone can surpass the United States so blatantly in wanton materialism and total disregard for the environment.

    The government of Dubai maintains a high profile, with large numbers of uniformed and plainclothed officers positioned discreetly throughout the community. The actual overall crime rate is difficult to measure, as the host government does not release crime statistics.

    Incidents of street crime, assaults and violent crime, though relatively infrequent by U.S. standards, do happen and seem to be on the rise...

    ^ never been there clearly.

    There are (sadly) two classes of people in dubai; the rich & the workers.
    The rich have no need to commit crime.
    The workers are too afraid to lose thier work permit.

    *walks down the road in the middle of the night like it aint a thing.

    Youve never been there. Also you're American so likely dont even know where Mexico is. Americans talking about other countries = lol

    I've been to London and it's a gloomier, older version of L.A. where people drive on the other side of the road. :)

    I can walk in my neighborhood at night without fear. Just not too far north or south. North is the Klan's old hangout, south the hood...

    being able to read > not being able to read

    There are no facts, but not surprised you cant read the paragraph that said that

    that would be a good wind up if it wasnt true.

    Yeah, I didn't cite D_G's source. I was saying that your personal experiences there are irrelevant, as facts are more important.

    The fact that such a wealthy government with a relatively well-run police force (for the Middle East) declines to release crime statistics implies intent to conceal the crime rates.

    And I've been to some pretty bad areas in the U.S. (by reputation, at least), and I didn't get shot; that might've been due to the fact that I wasn't alone, but I'm not falling for your American baiting.

    Bowling for Columbine was baiting? America = warzone

    I would say that you don't "get" American culture and you watch way too many 50 Cent videos and too much cable news.

    And what am I saying that has anything to do with Arab culture in particular? Their Western-style excess?

    Actually when it comes to excess, no one can really top rich arabs. more money than brains.

    However I was talking in terms of the way they run thier governments & civil services. Just because America does things a certain way, you shouldnt expect another culture to be the same. But Americans trying to understand another culture? Theyd have to figure out thier own before moving on to such a large task

    You can easily be both. You could have both an exaggerated view of violence in the United States and intentionally exaggerate that viewpoint in order to antagonize others. It's a double exaggeration!

    Oh, I didn't say they necessarily have to compile crime statistics (though it probably would be in any government's best interest to do so); I was challenging your assertion that the crime rate in Dubai is necessarily low or nonexistent, when there is absolutely no data to point either way.

    I know many people from the U.S. who've never been shot nor have they shot anyone. Hell, they've never even committed a violent crime!

    Oh but hey, Americans can't do anything right can they. :rolleyes:

    Actually I pretty much love american pop-culture despite all its flaws.

    However I thought this was thread about making uneducated generalisations about other countries, so i decided to join the party
