Too far?

... a Disney world in Bahrain, that is (not my cartoon). Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, apparently sick and tired of having to take his private jet all the way to Tokyo or Paris, is in talks to see if he can't get one built a little closer to home. Why didn't anyone think of this earlier? Why hasn't anyone thought of building a huge monument to the United States in one of the only countries in the world with a Shi'ite majority (the other two being Iraq and Iran), plagued by popular uprisings against the Sunni minority ruling class who are seen as illegitimate and criticized for playing into the hands of the United "Great Satan" States? I mean, the economy is great!
