the only thing that would have made them better is is an 0dumb0 drone was flying by at the same time. :)

That can be arranged...

The comments at the link are hilarious. Low information/perpetually outraged morons and their 'holier than thou' babble.
None of the world famous ancient civilizations (not a single one) have been protected, cherished, studied and deciphered by the locals. Those imperialist Europeans and other 'westerners' have done all of the heavy lifting, preservation and understanding.
The locals always destroy what is "theirs." Steal it apart, destroy it or just wantonly dismantle it. The Elgin Marbles were being ground up for mortar when Lord Elgin purchased what was left of them.

The only ancient temples, monuments and grand architectural wonders still preserved today exist only because the locals either didn't know they were there, or required too much work and effort to destroy them for other purposes.
