SquiggsIN: AverageAmericanGuy: Yes, it's a historical tragedy, but I don't think we're getting the full backstory here.Why were the workers willing to tear the site down? What are the opinions of the people living near the temple?It's fine that a bunch of people who are online and possibly far from the incident have strong feelings about this, but what about people who are on the ground?The people on the ground thought they were getting a paycheck that would help them feed their families. that's it. Destroying culture to feed your family is an easy choice for those already near poverty. Rich corporations looking to pad their profit margins know and exploit this every day.
robohobo: Too bad it wasn't a christian church, amirite?
