Need_MindBleach: OnlyM3: Destroy anything from the Judeo-Christian sects = Cheers
Destroy anything from the religion of global terrorism = feigned poutrage.

// walks off laughing.

Clearly you abide by the philosophy that if you keep spewing enough lies, some of your weaker-minded fellow Christians will start believing them.


You're giving him too much credit. He's not the instigator. He's the weak-minded Christian who bought in to the story.

This happened in Mali.

Which is in Africa.

Look who DRTFA

Look who assumes dumb sh*t!!

Al Qaeda "affiliates" != Taliban

Care to keep digging?


AQ does not have any Taliban links in Africa. The Taliban is a Pashtun group found in Afhanistan/Pakistan. In fact, the Taliban was mentioned once in the article in reference to a bombing in 2001 in Afghanistan. The AQ linked fighters they are more than likely referencing is AQIM. I know, i know, this is Fark, but those are the facts...care to keep digging?

HotWingConspiracy: In any event, I will be amused by the righteous indignation from people that have never heard of any of these monuments and as of five minutes ago never cared at all about them.


So I'm not allowed to get mad about the destruction of a monument unless I was had heard about the monument before?

Hey, Chut Wutty was murdered on April 26 -- but you'd never heard of him so you don't get to have an opinion on that topic.

Ilmarinen: DerAppie:
In any event, wiping out anything historical only hurts us as a whole.

In 200 words or less, how does the destruction of that pile of rocks hurt 7 billion people? Lost knowledge? Define which knowledge was lost beyond "wow, they could already use tool x which we also have".

It's called history. Many folks on Fark have been told to read some (especially in religious threads) so it might be something important. As for knowledge lost, each researcher hopes to find something new, which - at this site in Timbuktu - is now made impossible, depending on the level of destruction. We'll never know what might be lost.

To quote some webpage:

In archaeology and library research you can make a claim based on the easy pickings that lie on the surface or you can break into a sweat as you dig deeper. But it is not enough to dig deep. You must sift every spadeful, and sift it fine. Truth is most often found in the tiniest of grains: it is easy to miss if you don't focus intently.

/didn't count the words


Most of the "knowledge" found during archaeological digs or surveys can be easily classified as "trivia." Like I said, knowing that some people 500 years ago preferred their coffee black, ate grains or were average stone workers (made up facts) based on the quality of the structure, contents of stomachs and pots is completely irrelevant outside of a game of Trivial Pursuit or a pub quiz. The further back you go, the more trivial data found becomes. Who cares how people in the stone age made boats? If you really thought it was vital knowledge to know how to build things with basic tools you should go to the various tribes that exist today and see how they do it instead of guessing based on the scuff marks on a hollowed out tree. Archaeology and history are not professions but hobbies people happen to be paid for.

As for the saying that people who forget history are doomed to repeat it, it wasn't a lack of knowledge of history that caused the wars of the last few decades. Or the atrocities committed. I'm even willing to state that a knowledge of history is what keeps quite a few tensions between various factions alive throughout the ages.

These farking savages are destroying Timbuktu, one of the great Islamic cities of antiquity. However, the cosmopolitan realm of the great Muslim king, Mansa Musa, complete with the Kouroukan Foga, which was a constitution (not the most progressive, but hey, having a constitution of any kind was pretty impressive back then) was too enlightened for these modern barbarians.

This is why the Islamic world has to rise up and put these farking cretins down. If they get Egypt, they'll destroy the mosques of Cairo. If they get Turkey, they'll tear down the Hagia Sophia and the Suleimanye. If they get Iran, they'll raze Isfahan because of Shi'ism.

Exterminate the brutes.

optional: This is why the Islamic world has to rise up and put these farking cretins down.


All the money is centered in a handful of houses. Most of the people in the Islamic world don't have the cash, the guns, or the interest to be more than a bystander when someone elses war happens on their front lawn.
Their world is closer to feudalism than anything we understand.

I'd wager that the guy with the pretty teeth is a military tourist who's using daddy's cash to fund his part in this little skirmish (note the nice cloths, freshly minted guns). The temple attacks are just to demonstrate how little power the local government has.
He doesn't know or care what cultural value they have to anyone.
The final intent is probably to make the locals worship a new God-on-earth who happens to be his cousin, so what's it matter if an old temple is destroyed?
He'll make a new one.

/Its only money.

Geez... it's like those guys are just bound and determined to be dicks to EVERYBODY. They're really not even Muslims.

In the Holy Qumran, the Epistle from Shal'lah'wa,written 74 years after the Koran was canonized by Ali'Ru'bonor is emphatic that graven images and monuments to men must be leveled to the ground.
Shal'lah'wa 43:9 reads " For as one man builds another shall break in two that which is an abomination to Allah and His Prophet Muhammad. peace be upon his mantles and his sinews. In his building he did not use rubber and turds, thus in the tearing down one will not find rubber or turds. If rubber and turds is found then the one tearing down should then rebuild as he has hit the wrong wall. He should rebuild using sheepskin and urine gleaned from unwed sheep and goats of the Bedouin princes of Saud.THIS is the word of ALLAH "" there should be found in your midst lots of goats and sheep to gather skins and urine from that have not been popped in the uterus by men with short sticks. If a man approaches a virgin goat to get the urine he should first present his beard for taste.This beard shall then be known as Katie'nicole'mimi until the man has satisfied his lust for power. THIS lust must be forever known as JOHN 'T."
