These photos speak for themselves. For those interested in the period these are fascinating:

Liking these pictures. Some have that same epic element as the Soviet flag over the Reichstag.

You really gotta feel uneasy with the level of destruction in the cities.

Saw a report on the BBC last night on the destruction of Palmyra. The New Town is now almost non-existent. The main street that I remember being lined with shops, restaurants and hotels, is just a mass of ruins. War is ruinous isn't it?

Yes, I've seen it. I don't even have words for it. There are wars and wars. This destruction frenzy in Syria, however, is reaching 1945 levels indeed.

I'm guessing Aurelian would have liked their services had they been around in 272 A.D.
