I’d be curious too see if they’re able to be as efficient at building anything as they are at destroying… Even their VBIEDs look as ugly as them. Even a baboon looks better than them… Well, a baboon liver transplant was once tried on someone with cirrhosis during the 80’s… It didn’t worked. I’m sure that the baboon brain transplant works on a large scale. It’s called Daesh!

As sick warped and twisted as the reason may be, the other things they have blown up had a reason. I can’t begin to imagine why they decided to blow up a hotel.
