Second, the iconic ship Queen Elizabeth 2, that Dubai bought, is back up for sale. It was purchased a couple of years ago with the intention to turn the ship into a floating hotel off of the now-bankrupt Dubai World islands. Dubai World owes $22 billion dollars, and the sale (if anyone buys) of the QE2 should help to pay that down.
And finally, Dubai World also owns the Cirque du Soleil, and they might be up for sale soon as well! Hmmmwho wants to bet that 120+ floors of the Burj Khalifa will be just as empty as Dubai's coffers.
