Outcry as IS ‘wrecks’ Assyrian site

This news completely depressed me, and outraged me, this morning. I have a degree in archeology and studied about this site,  in one context or another, and to have these ISIS buffoons destroy Nimrod is deplorable.  The only consoling thought I have is that someone out there is getting ready to bomb the crap at out ISIS, and that Mohammed will not be greeting them will open arms for such affronts to all of human history.

An after-post thought: if they were so disgusted by idolatry, why did they loot it first?
