Aren't they required to stop all activity until an archaeological dig is completed?

Is this really ironic?  I'd expect much of the ME to be a battlefield.

The attackers, possibly from a city named Uruk and perhaps motivated by Hamoukar's access to copper, succeeded in taking the city, destroying part of it through fire.

Was going to make a joke about copper thieves, but I just don't have a joke in me when it comes to Syria.

What's what happens when you hear about that part of the world only through the media versus visiting or talking to the people.

Trying to preserve battlefields always stuck me as kind of a silly concept anyway.

There's Crusaders left? I thought the guys at the VFW were old but not that old.

Well to be fair a bunch of white guys did march there three times for the specific purpose of making it a battlefield, so you can understand the confusion sometimes

I hope they were called Uruk-Hai.

You can't be syria.

These freaking "people" if you can call them that, have gone full circle.
They have been pounding their cave man voo doo spooks into their own heads and getting by with a 4th grade education while eating mud patties and screwing goats. Now they have somehow managed to survive by drinking their own pee long enough to had destroyed remnants of their own lack of culture for over a thousand years. It's like the special Olympics of civilization. Just look at how much their music and fashion has evolved in a thousand years. Oh right. It hasn't. Well, how about the cuisine, and womens' rights? Oh, right. It hasn't.

They ought to just open up Bible land and take money from Republicans from Iowa who would gladly pay to watch people get stoned to death just like in "bible times" as they say.

Pretty sure the urban warfare used slings, not "slingshots".

You might get a few bites with this, but next time you should just focus on the Arab stereotypes, not the Republican stereotypes.  You'll get more action that way.

/BTW - I've been there and know it's not all a battlefield.  This is what we call "a joke".

They were assaulted by a force armed with slingshots and clay balls.

It doesn't sound like their defenses were all that terrifying then.

Gettysburg is pretty good at this silly concept.

About the end of days in Isaiah:

Yeshaya 17:1 'The harsh prophecy concerning Damascus: Behold Damascus shall be removed from being a city and it shall be depth of ruins.

Those who forget history are bound to something something.  Lesson seems to be lost here.

The Carthaginians defending the city were attacked by three Roman legions. The Carthaginians were proud and brave but they couldn't hold. They were massacred. Arab women stripped them of their tunics and their swords and lances. The soldiers lay naked in the sun. Two thousand years ago. I was here.

/ Same thing I was thinking!
