ancient Assyrians were brutal? Compared to who? Everybody was brutal back then aHun. Back then it was primitive and life was as simple as live or die.


According to this http://www.cracked.com/article_16972_the-5-most-terrifying-civilizations-in-history-world.html assyrians is one of top 5 most terrifying civilizations, so l disagree with you. While its true that many were brutal back then, the ancient Assyrians were hated and all wanted them gone for their brutality.

I disagree with your disagreement, it's called Psychological warfare, the Mongols used it exactly as much as we did and similar to how we did but we had different outcomes. both our ancient ancestors and the Mongols would ask a city to surrender. If the city did not surrender, both would attack it until it was destroyed.

The difference between Assyrians and Mongols was that the enemy king was killed or captured and some of the population we moved into Ator itself. The Mongols simply killed the entire city of those they could'nt take as slaves or those they could'nt use as artisans/engineers.

The Mongols used psychological warfare because war is expensive and avoiding war while winning "battles" before they were fought was the preferred method and our ancient ancestors already knew that. The times we had to be brutal was during rebellions and outside invasions.

What l dont like the most is that Womens rights sucked, Do you know their rights? In the sumerians time they had more equal rights, its sad that the ancient Assyrians will always be known for their brutality, l wish the ancient Assyrians did contribute more to society instead of focusing in war, if the hanging gardens of babylon was in nineveh then l would be happy because then we did Do something great like the neo babylonians who contributed much to society forexample astronomy and mathematic, and the sumerians.

We did focus on more than war... Secondly, it's hard not to focus on war when there's constant rebellion and random nomads attacking the villages under your jurisdiction. Have you already forgotten the great library of Ashurbanipal? Art? Architecture? Jewelry? Medicine? You do realize alot of our ancient architecture is what we used for our churches and what Muslims copied for their mosques right?

I forgot to mention that but foreigners will always see the ancient Assyrians as warlike and the neo babylonians as cultural people, maybe thats why l have this look at the assyrians, because people see the assyrians like that. I really hope the hanging gardens of babylon is in fact in nineveh, some says sennacherib copied the gardens from the babylonians but thats impossible because it was after the assyrian empire fell that it was created by nebuchnadezzar.

Women's rights was abysmal in most parts of the world at that time anyway. Is that a bad thing? Of course.

Gay men even had more rights than women at that time, shockingly.
