What would Jesus say, about Dubai?

Actually, since you have to see God as all knowing, throughout all time, certainly this picture (among others) was in Christ's mind as he spoke these words:
"For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him, Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish." Luke 14 (KJV)
From Breitbart:
"Next month's opening of the Burj Dubai tower, the world's tallest building, will bring Dubai's era of exuberant expansion to a juddering halt as hundreds of other building projects are already mothballed."
There's just something about tall buildings, and man's pride.

The Chris Muir cartoon is tangential, but apropos.
