"Islamic State destroys ancient amphitheater at Palmyra, Syria"
"The Islamic State destroyed parts of an ancient Roman amphitheater dating to the second century A.D. in the city of Palmyra, Syria, state-run media reported Friday. The facade of the Roman Theater and the Tetrapylon, a monument of pillars, were demolished with explosives, SANA news agency reported. Each is a famous and archaeologically significant part of the ancient city, designated a UNESCO Heritage Site."
HEY, I THOUGHT PALMYRA HAD BEEN LIBERATED! I ALSO HAVE THOUGHT AFTER THE MASSIVE AERIAL BOMBARDMENT AS BEEN THE CASE FOR ALMOST THREE FULL YEARS NOW THE COMBATANTS OF THE ISLAMIC STATE [ISIL] SURELY BY NOW WOULD BE ON THE ROPES, TAKING A BEATING AND NO LONGER CAPABLE OF EVEN HOLDING GROUND.
So what is this then?? Don and Vlad had better get going and fast!!
ISIL very resilient and determined, ruthless. In the extreme!! Never underestimate them.
