Great discussion about the cylinder seal of Cyrus and the very real political symbolism it holds today.

Interesting topic mate.

The historic perspective seems to draw conclusions that this area is STILL a global focus.

Gee whiz.

It also leads one to "believe" (I hate that word) that there is much more going on than maybe we would like to understand.

God forbid we non-mall-shopping, non-prozac-taking, non-cnn-watching masses should see the point here.

Regardless of your own politics or beliefs, the story is still pertinent.

Thanks mate.

One more piece of the puzzle.

cheers.

:cheers:
