Hatred is hatred. Your hate is exactly the same as theirs, except that they have the anger and the courage to take their lives into their hands, to kill and be killed for their beliefs.
...and is it wrong that I really like that song? It just sounds so cool. Even though my Russian is, well, limited.

Now Isis has blown up the triumph arch in Palmyra...
I can't help thinking there is another agenda with the whole Isis thing.
This is not a religious monument, it's just history.
Can't help thinking they are instructed to do so. Someone is paying or convincing those idiots to do so.
First we get the golf wars where countless ancient treasures were stolen or destroyed.. now we get these "rebels" who blow up the remains of the ancient world.
Is there something that needs to be destroyed and out of sight?
Or are they just trying to piss everyone off, so we are more willing to bomb them ?
It doesn't make sense.

if its not in the koran, it doesn't matter. meaning that the only history worth keeping is that recorded in the koran.
