A true Crime against mankind. Yes, they can file criminal charges but the damage is done. The pyramids are irreplaceable. Such cold hearted, callous and GREEDY creeps They have no moral character. Thank g*d people were able to stop them from destroying the other pyramids

Talk about sh*t for brains... That kind of sh*t should be punishable by death. Hope they lost their contract. What the hell were they developing there or doing there in the first place?

Would anyone be really surprised to find out the very same people who are loudly saying it's such a crime would be the ones who secretly issued the orders to tear it down? Is there oil down below? Uranium?? Fresh water?? Will an apartment complex go there now - with a plaque about the pyramid once there? How about an office complex? A tourist hotel, including gift shop?? Something doesn't seem right - not an accident????????
