Any pretense we were fighting a just fight would be gone. Any moral high-ground we have ever occupied would be lost forever. Any sane man would would despise those who choose to take this action.

But... That rock may be gone forever.

Do you ever let up? That is their sacred site. That would definitely start a holy war. It would be a stupid, callous, provocative act, not becoming of any group or country or religion to do such a thing.

Shame on you lotsoffun. I never said to bomb it. I only asked a question on a debate forum.

I know you didn't propose bombing it. I said"Do you ever let up" because all of your posts are an attack on Muslims, and... I answered your question.

The prospect of that kind of genocide would sadden and anger the world, not just Muslims.

Just like if you nuked any city unprovoked: It would kill countless civilians, scar families for generations, and sire the hatred of the entire world.

It would have an especially negative impact, as you would give the Muslim world on *very* legeitimate reason to despire the West. It would radicalize countless people, and any pretense of being morally just would dissapear in an instant.

At least a handful of Muslim-majority nations (most notably Pakistan) have nukes. I'll just leave it at that.

The world would weep for the loss of a significant city in our planet's history and we would either realise Lee's quote "the day two companies of men can annihilate each other in a second, hopefully humanity will recoil from war" (butchered that I'm sure) OR we would descend into a major world war.

If only there was a Six Flags within walking distance of Mecca. Billions of lives could be spared.

- The movie will end & the spectators will leave the theatre & go home thinking how bad an idea this would've been in real life.

- You're greatly underestimating the disaster, a cataclysm. Imagine 1 in every 4 people people realised his holy city just got levelled! Exactly.

The Catholics might disagree.

There would probably be a lot of dead people and fallout. The Muslims would get mad and might try to get revenge on whoever did it.
