      Ha! Too true. It's become painfully obvious how the financial shift to the east over the past decade has manifested itself in Shanghai and Dubai skyscrapers, while the U.S. has remained virtually stagnant.

      ...which I am oddly at peace with. I am psyched that we're saying "You know what? Let's not make the biggest thing in history. Let's shoot for green and classy."

      Anyways, once the oil dries up, their skyscrapers will become the world's tallest birdfeeders.

      beautiful capture, to think i stood here where you are taking the photograph in 2008, so much progress has been made, let america sing in the strength since that fateful day.

      i am not against muslims, they are not all bad, its just a shame a large amount have given them such a bad name in religion which is very wrong.

      @american_eagle_2076 I'm surprised no-one has said yet how utterly hideously offensive that comment is. As long as the ignorance, bigotry, and hatred you demonstrate is at large in the world, we will be doomed to repeat the suffering being commemorated today.

      I agreed, i had to delete and block that filth. ignorance and hate were the roots of what happened on 9/11; you'd think the collective American conscious would have learned something from that day.

      We just need to finish it at its projected height of 1776 feet, to show the world that we're capable of coming back to normality. Later on we can worry about beating the Burj Khalifa.
