Back To The Dark Ages

Thanks to the assistance given by US President Barack Obama to the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, this kind of vandalism:

Islamist extremists have set fire to a library containing thousands of priceless historic manuscripts as they fled French and Malian forces closing in on Timbuktu.

Without firing a shot, 1,000 French soldiers backed by 200 Malian troops descended on the ancient desert trading post, as they tried to cut off the escape of al Qaeda-linked fighters. But before they could be rounded up, the ragtag rebels scattered into the desert, torching homes, mosques and libraries, including the city's £16-million Ahmed Baba Institute, home to some 20,000 ancient documents on culture, science and geography, as they left.

...will be coming soon to the Cairo Museum, the Great Pyramids and the Sphinx.
