Please bear with me as I ask you to briefly use your imagination. Close your eyes. Imagine Machu Picchu at dawn cloaked in fog. Now imagine the fog slowly lifting to reveal an enormous ancient city perched on the edge of a mountain

Thanks Marty for the link to the CNN article by Brent Huffman. Such a great loss this will be for the Afghan people and the whole world. Read, viewed the slide show and noted your post.

Thanks Marty, I think the tourist industry is also killing sites like Machu Pichu and the Gallapagos.

How many historic sites were destroyed forever when the 3 Gorges Dam was built? they didn't care about that. They won't care about this. Unless there is a public outcry and they realize they will look bad if they destroy it. There will have to be a big drive to save it, otherwise it will be gone.
