Such a barbaric act is reflective of a culture's true appreciation of life, heritage, and morals. Clearly, the disgusting act of blasting open tombs had no affect on their consciences. This is a case worse than that of the Elgian Marbles and was committed many times over. The relics should be returned with a formal and international apology.People often get caught up in a developed nation's appearance and take it at face value and say "oh such and such country is so civilized and cultured" yet they do not see whether a lot of the culture is from and whether it conceals a shameful past. Such an act also shows utter disregard for humanity and culture, such criminals do not even deserve to see the cultures they so terribly trample upon.
