'Chinese rulers from Qin Shi Huangdi to Mao ordered campaigns of mass destruction... '

Even that  ...

What "pales in comparison" with whatever is not up to you to decide. No one has destroyed more cultural legacy than the CHinese in the last 2200 years, guaranteed. Not only have they destroyed much of their own culture but also many autochtonous cultures in the conquered territories of their empire. The West in contrast has over the last two centuries preserved cultural relics from backward nations which would no doubt have destroyed them eventually.

That's a ridiculously funny idea. The Egyptians don't feel flattered by the CHinese greed that seeks to divert tourist business to China. In fact it shows one thing only beside boundless greed: Lack of artistic skills and imagination.

Wolfgang's son is Chinese, and adopts Chinese nationality.

He wouldn't like his son to adopt his greedy seedy so-called nationality which he is coy to reveal to us.

Wolfgang is my neighour. It's dinner time, and soon he will stab dinner knife at his own son telling how worse his son is.

Sichizhophrenic.

I don't think the Chinese would object if the Egyptians decided to built a replica of The Great Wall in their desert. That is, if they could.
As far as tourist dollars goes, just look up stuff like "Cairo: Giza Pyramid, Sakkara & Memphis Full-Day Private Tour"
It's for sale in Egypt too.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

I suspect that you're wrong, given the destruction and damage the Spaniards did to South America, some scholars put the death toll at close to 100 million people and several entire civilisations.  Of course we shouldn't forget the Roman Empire and it's wholesale destruction of dozens of cultures, including wiping out the entire city-state of Carthage (Third Punic War) and of course the French-USA attempt at cultural genocide in Vietnam, etc.
