If you really want to see a lucid before-and-after of Aleppo AND Damascus, go on YouTube or Netflix and pull up the episode of Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern from 2011. As much as I pity the M.I.N.O.'s(muslims in name only) or the truly murderous horses asses that are the "true" muslims who, God forgive me, I detest, you see a true picture of what the cities looked like then and now. Even for those deluded lost souls, you almost have to feel pity. Looking at the before and after is as striking as anything you could see from Hiroshima or any concentration camp.
