ABC Wednesday "R" is for "Razing"

Eleven and a half years later, the former Chinese Embassy in Belgrade, which was bombed during the NATO bombing of Belgrade in 1999, is finally being razed. Some say the embassy's bombing was not an accident, as NATO claimed, but was done deliberately. In any event, the Chinese now have a new embassy here in Belgrade in another location.

Find out what other R's are out there on ABC WEDNESDAY.

It's kinda sad that wars destroy important buildings.. More sad, that such embassies are somewhat destroyed by people of ill purposes..

Wars truly are ugly. World PEACE, people.

I'm not gonna mention about political issue but I would say that I love your image. Construction/Destruction of the building is so attractive to me. I took similar shot.
Have a wonderful day.
