Lying in the dust and being picked off by looters, the shattered remains of the ancient city of Nimrud that was obliterated by ISIS

These pictures show the shattered remains of what was once one of the most magnificent cities in the Middle East.

The ancient Iraqi city of Nimrud has been reduced to rubble by Islamic State, who were forced out of the famed archaeological site in November.

The terror group was driven out by Iraqi forces, but left behind scenes of devastation, with much of the ancient Assyrian city destroyed.

  • You see – they are smashing Babylonian privilege that no one really needs anyway.

      Afterward the total destruction they will claim Babylon never existed; that it was a Muslim site.

      • Just like Jesus was a Muslim prophet and Islam advanced the space race.

          Well, they did discover the Americas too, O.K.!

      I don’t understand why Western World idiots get so upset about the smashing of nice old stuff. They did the same thing during the French Revolution, an event considered to be cool (was not).

      • I’m sure they are either happy or in denial about what ISIS is doing.

    • Don’t insult reptiles. Reptiles have never done anything like this.

      Look at that grotesque fat little object. Righteously obliterating what he could never have made, him and and all his flee-ridden tribes, in all the millennia that mankind has had to make things in.

      Introduce me to a Yazidi rape-victim, and she’ll move me more than Nimrud, because she’s human. But I’ve never met one. And so Nimrud moves me more. I’m a bad person, I care more about these ancient stones than I do human people who, when you haven’t met them individually, seem infinitely replaceable.

      I truly envy the soldier that puts a bullet in his brain.

    Islam demonstrating why their faith has long been accused of iconoclasm….

    It’s why they can’t work when they all come back on welfare… too tired.

    And on the pedestal, these words appear:
    “My name is Obamandias, King of Kings;
    Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!”
    Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
    Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
    The lone and level sands stretch far away.

    BTW, does anyone remember when the Baghdad Museum was looted of what turned out to be mainly display copies?

    That’s why you can’t have nice things when you live in a muslim area.

    The Arts community in Toronto just don’t get it ….the ROM will be razed under sharia along with every statue they create.

    Inbreeding has led to the devolution of the middle eastern races.
