    I think that it is extremely important that the site not only be maintained, but preserved to the absolute detail. If that requires American money, so be it (it will).

    We all know the Euros are too damn cheap to pay for their own security, it's little surprise they don't feel the need to preserve this monument to their stupidity as both a memorial and a warning. One would think we could get Germany to pay some, I mean it shouldn't be that hard to guilt them into it...right?

    I think history like that should be funded by the world. It should show up on every country's budget, as a reminder that humans do have a limit.
