ISIS has blown up the historic wall of Nineveh

No words.... But do bethink yourselves, these monuments have withstood the onslaught of various peoples for thousands of years. Not Alexander the Great, nor the Romans, or the original Muslim invaders, or the Mongols, or any of the other hordes of often brutal marauders who have had their way with the region, ever thought to destroy them. And now they're gone forever. Here for the past thousands of years. Gone today. Enjoy them in art books or documentaries, if any there be.
