    Oh well.

    I realize these aren't lives, but they are Priceless artefacts from Mesopotamia/The Cradle of Civilization.

    wont go over well,in iraq many us soldiers used to like being stationed near a zigurat,because the locals wouldnt attack,even though they were from older religions,the raqi's had both fear and respect for them,and believed doing anything ill towards those ancient sites and artifacts was really bad karma.

    ISIS is more the result of the Arab Spring and the civil war in Syria, not the Iraq war.

    Again, my personal position is irrelevant to the topic on this thread. Keep away from the ad hominem logical fallacy and stay on topic please.

    Ok, apparently it's only when the Islamic State destroys antiquities that you're outraged.

    No matter my personal "outrage" the antiquities are destroyed by ISIS nevertheless.

    ISIS Bulldozing of Ancient Nimrud Site in Iraq Stirs Outrage

    News that Islamic State fighters had Bulldozed and vandalized the ancient city of Nimrud in northern Iraq provoked outrage on Friday, as archaeologists despaired that the militant group was Systematically Destroying priceless antiquities in a Birthplace of Civilization.

    Islamic religious scholars joined common cause with governments, museums and other international preservationists to denounce what they described as an odious affront.

    Al-Azhar, Sunni Islam’s leading authority, based in Cairo, called the destruction “a major crime against the entire world.”

    The top cultural official at the United Nations called the destruction a war crime that should be taken up by the International Criminal Court, and she vowed to do “whatever is needed” to stop the plundering by the Islamic State, also known as ISIS and ISIL.

    “This is yet another attack against the Iraqi people, reminding us that nothing is safe from the cultural cleansing underway in the country,” said the official, Irina Bokova, who is director general of Unesco, the United Nations organization for education, science and culture.

    Re: ISIS fighters Destroy Ancient Artefacts at Mosul museum

    Bumping up your thread Mbig. They struck again.



    Iraqi officials in the northern city of Mosul said Saturday that militants with the Islamic State group have begun demolishing the ancient archaeological site of Hatra in northern Iraq in a push to rid its territory of symbols it says promote idolatry.

    Hatra, located 110 kilometers (68 miles) southwest of the city of Mosul, was a large fortified city during the Parthian Empire and capital of the first Arab kingdom. The ancient city, a UNESCO world heritage site, is said to have withstood invasions by the Romans in A.D. 116 and 198 thanks to its high, thick walls reinforced by towers.....snip~

    IS destroying another ancient archaeological site in Iraq

    We need to send ground troops into Iraq NOW and put a stop to this **** before ISIS completely destroys Iraq's historical legacy.

    If only President "They're a JV Team" Obama had taken the ISIS threat seriously before it got too much out of hand, this wouldn't have happened.
    Good job, President Blunder!
