i'm not sure they CAN destroy those things. they're fricking huge.

I guess there go the last of the warm fuzzies from "Arab Spring."

They're not destroyed yet. I'll believe it when I see it happening.
 
2012-07-10 08:07:16 PM  
Sounds legit.

Seriously, who thinks they would destroy, or the world would let them destroy, THE BIGGEST TOURIST ATTRACTION IN THE WORLD?

/man made of course
 
2012-07-10 08:09:27 PM  
That's stupid. They'll have to build granaries in all their cities.

...one suggestion is to dump massive amounts of wax on the pyramids, turning them into disfigured blobs...

So did you lose a bet when the Taliban blew up the Buddhas of Bamiyan?

Yeah, after the world lost those priceless treasures, I will never again doubt the willingness of fanatical Muslims to destroy invaluable historic monuments.

Not nearly the same as the Giza pyramids, still a tragedy.

Oh for fark's sake, they aren't going to blow up the farking pyramids. Egypt needs the tourism to function as a country. If you have nothing but a farking desert to come see, you're not going to get a lot of tourists.
 
2012-07-10 08:42:54 PM  
seriously - how would you even go about TRYING to destroy those things? we're talking about a couple of piles of VERY large rocks. And that's just the pyramids themselves. that's not including what's in the valley of kings or the Sphinx, which is another great huge pile of stone.
 
2012-07-10 08:46:16 PM  
Good. Now the Ha'tak motherships will have no place to land.

F*ck you, snakeheads!

Anti-Muslim, evangelical Christian newspaper claims Muslims want to destroy the Pyramids.

If there's one thing I trust more than headlines that end in question marks, it's such headlines that source right-wing FrontPageMag.com.

I'm convinced this is going to happen. If the last few weeks have shown anything, it's that the most extreme Islamists now have unchecked power in Egypt.
 
2012-07-10 08:56:59 PM  
Note that the person (singular) who called for the destruction of the pyramids is not even Egyptian, nor is there any indication, even in the article, that any Egyptian Muslims (much less any with any real power or influence) have a desire to destroy the pyramids.

While I agree with the sentiment, you've apparently never heard of Sharm El Sheikh or Hurghada.

Besides, I'd expect them to start small and work their way up to the big stuff. They would probably lay waste to the Valley of the Kings or the Karnak Temple first.

Seriously? It's not like they would dismantle the thing block by block. A bunch of modern high explosives would make pretty short work of the pyramids.

They could use it to test out bunker- busting weapons, or shoot at it with their biggest field guns for a few weeks, or just stack a few thousand tons of HE along its faces and detonate it all to celebrate Ramadan or something.

Deciding to do it would be the big thing. Actually DOING it would be little more than a detail.

------------

Ain't gonna happen, though- unless the Taliban manages to take complete control of the place, which is damn unlikely.
 
2012-07-10 09:50:52 PM  
While it's not on the same scale (although no less despicable) they are doing this elsewhere already...
Timbuktu for one, there was a thread just a few days ago... the Buddhas mentioned earlier in this thread.. It's already happening and the crimes against humanity are not being punished.
I'm a generally live and let live kinda guy, but this shiat must be stopped.
 
2012-07-10 09:52:53 PM  
Ha! An Egyptian friend of mine said that the military, it's councils, and the equivalent of their Supreme Court are so tied up with US aid, tourist/research grants and US arms funding that they've neutered the office of the presidency as much as they can. The only thing holding that country together is the Military. They're the only ones with level heads for once. Their military wanted mubarak out and they got it but phase two of the plan to have a US friendly president didn't work out. Now they deal with it.
 
2012-07-10 09:54:09 PM  
I should clarify: I have no doubt that there are radical islamist elements in egypt that would happily destroy the pyramids, just as there are radical environmentalists in our country who would happily destroy our economy so that we can all live in mud huts.

But i don't see it happening as a matter of government activity.

Pack the tunnels full of TNT, literally old school dynamite, pack it into the cracks in the rock on the outside, detonate, and you'd be left with something pyramid-like but not worth seeing.

They could ruin them easily without much trouble. And if the first blast didn't do it, just repeat with your same cheap explosives until you get the desired result.
