Notre Dame

Post by D5CAV » Tue Apr 16, 2019 1:32 am

My little experience in construction sites, which were all on us.gov installations, the requirements for safety and monitoring were pretty onerous. I recall having to assign some privates for 24/7 "fire watch".

So, how is it that a fire can break out minutes after the construction crew leaves, and on the day after Palm Sunday, and a few days before Easter? Coincidence much?

I would think that the fire suppression requirements for construction in a 1000 year old wood Cathedral would be a little higher than a cold-war era facility with lots of asbestos and steel.

Anyone with more construction site experience than me care to comment?

Thoughts come to mind a certain group trying to blow it up a few years ago.

surprised a certain peace loving group did not burn it down before.

If evidence of such is found, I guarantee it will be suppressed (as far as possible).

They are already working on suppressing even suspicion that the koranimals are responsible.

Not surprising given they announced that it was an accident even before the flames were under control.

They tried it before. And this is only the one we know about. The Frenchies tried to suppress some more of the gruesome Bataclan stuff, so this wouldn't surprise me.

It's not like the Koranimals haven't destroyed works of art before.

The Taliban destroyed some of The Giant Buddhas of Bamiyan, in Afghanistan.

Looks like they're trying to play hide the kebab in that article, too.
