ISIS has begun the destruction of Palmyra

Several media outlets are reporting that ISIS has begun destroying some of the ancient artifacts in the Syrian city of Palmyra.

What a bunch of...... scoundrels.

TD, a couple of Tomahawks on the Kasbah in Mecca and the Dome of the Rock in
Jerusalem would also make the point, with less collateral damage.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe ISIS have said they want to destroy Mecca, too. So you might not want to do the job for them.

Or go after the people that are funding them. But you can't do that because they're "allies". Or more accurately they've got what we want and you don't want to rock that boat.

With the current price and availability of oil (and strategic stocks at over-max), we can blow the bottom out of 'that boat'.
