Over a thousand plus years ago large Buddha statues were carved into mountainsides by Buddha believing invaders in Afghanistan! Along comes the pro-Islamic Taliban in the 2000’s who blow them up! At the time UNESCO the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization protested their destruction while some Buddha believing countries offered to move them with no success obviously!
While in America statues are coming down of Columbus and Confederate generals in particular. In the case of Columbus I have no problem with this as apparently it was the Vikings who discovered America and their statues should be replacing his while the Confederate generals lost the civil war! But I know when we will have come full circle when we are not only blowing up Stone Mountain but Mount Rushmore as well!
And that is all I’m going to say about that!
