#1 If they take out the godless commie built Aswan Dam it would take care of the pyramids as it carves a grand canyon to the Med... just saying...

#2 And that evil cache of the infidels, the Egyptian Museum, is right next to the river...

#3 I haven't tried to analyze the hydraulics of an Aswan 'removal' - while it would clearly wreack havoc with the communities and cities all along the Nile (90% of the population?) would the flooding Nile still have the velocity for catastrophic erosion or would it clog its channel (braided stream morphology) and spread out over the breadth of the flood plain and slow down & soak in?

#4  (braided stream morphology)

Laying 25-1 that's a Rantburg first use.
