Footage of ancient Palmyra monuments after Syrian forces routed Islamic State

Thank you, Al-Masdar News (AMN), thank you, thank you. This 2:18 minute video tour, filmed today, really needs to be viewed in full screen at YouTube.   

Islamic State did a lot of damage to the monuments but several will be pieced back together or rebuilt from stones mined from the same quarry that provided the original stonework, thousands of years ago. This rebuilding project, when completed, will be one of the wonders of the world. And the project even at this early stage of planning is already global in its sweep. 

So the triumphal music accompanying the footage is warranted. Evil lost this round.
