the Aïn Dara Temple has been destroyed
http://www.lapresse.ca/international/moy...-turcs.php

Like mention in the title, a precious 3000 years old Aramean temple has been destroyed by Turkish forces in the wake of their offensive on Afrin. These ruins were exceptionnaly well preserved and at par with Palmyr in terms of preciousness. Source only in French, sorry for that. A sad day for historians like me.

I, too, value old structures. Church or otherwise, architecture is amazing and valuable.

I may not care for religions but I appreciate the beauty of their worship centers whether it's Buddhism, Islam, Christianity or some American Indian totem pole. I hate that opposing forces always destroy structures like this. It's been going on since Egyptian times though.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

And not believable as an accident, as there were no legitimate targets anywhere in the area.
