Demolished Infrastructure

A couple of months ago, the earthquake-damaged police station in Christchurch was demolished by controlled explosion.

A week later it looked like this.

After three weeks.

Now most of the rubble is gone, with only the foundation and basement left to be dug out.

A new emergency response centre for police, ambulance and fire services is being built on a different site.

Replacing this infrastructure is an enormous strain for a city in a developed country with good insurance coverage.

In a less developed country, replacing this kind of infrastructure must be an impossible burden. That is why I cannot understand why the Washington warmongers send out planes every day to destroy building and bomb infrastructure in Syria, and encourages their allies to do the same in Yemen. What sort of warped logic thinks that this will make the situation better. You cannot do good by doing evil.
