Bomb Crater

Bomb Crater

Being ignorant assholes, the Khmer Rouge tried to destroy many of the temples at Angkor Wat. Luckily for the rest of the world, they were almost as inept as they were stupid. They tried to blow up temples built of solid rock with hand grenades, and they didn't get very far before they either got bored or ran out of explosives.
