has in stall for us all.

This information is priceless and timeless. Yet such information was so deliberately ignored. Why??? Because of all the truth hidden in the mysteries of Iraq. Iraq is sacred to the cradle of civilization. Iraq is critical to all. Yet the NWO wants that to be destroyed. They want Iraq to become the next Israel. They want the land to be fought for and died for. They want another holy war. They know the ignorants still see unholy things as 'holy'. As long as the ignorant continue to cheat the idea of what is holy then the evil ones will continue to take advantage of that weakness. We must continue to find the truth about Iraq. We must confront the Babylonian Brotherhood and the New World Order Plotters.

Most of all, we must ensure that science and humanity prevail over obscurity and violence

Oh come on, this is nothing compared to the crimes Saddam commited. I see everyone blaming the USA but not Saddam.

This is not nothing. This is over 170,000 pieces of history stolen or destroyed. Some of those artifacts were over seven thousand years old.
Iraq was Mesopotamia, Babylon, Ninevah. It contained the oldest city in the world; it's rightfully considered the cradle of civilization. People died under Hussein, and that is a tragedy. But treasures that survived seven millenia have been carelessly destroyed in three days. 80,000 clay tablets written in cunieform, tracing the history and evolution and the written word. And it could have been prevented. And that's a tragedy too.

The accusation is based on the assumption the artifacts were not taken out of the museum prior to the US entering the area.

Furthermore as stated earlier the individuals who resigned were members of the prior administration.

Come, come, cyberchums. the century is but 2 and a bit years old. There will be much better crimes ahead.
At present, the only clear contenders are the standard of spelling, grammar and percipience displayed by ATS posters, the laws regarding cut'n'paste from "What Really Happened", and Thomas and his hacksaw in the shotgun-shed.

To worsen things, the DoD's Office for Reconstruction and Humanitarian Assistance warned Centcom of a probable looting and urged them to guard the entrance to culturally relevant sites, which wasnt done.

Agree with you there Mok!

It is a great shame that all that archaeology was destroyed but when you saw the looks on the peoples faces, you could tell they knew that they were free!

Hopefully they will realise what they have done and try and sort it out!

I'm curious. How many of you that are squalling that the U.S. didn't somehow do enough to protect this museum was aware of its existence before reading about the looting of it? How many have travelled to the great and open Iraq and visited it and all the other cultural places there?

Sure, it is a shame that the artifacts have been stolen or destroyed. The fact that some will do what the rest of civilized humanity consider unthinkable is casue to sumarily execute them when captured. But blame the one s that should be blamed, the thieves, which are probably members of the Husseini Regime as Toltec has pointed out, and Hussein for forcing our hand after 12 years. We aren't repressive to the Iraqi people, and it is clear that we are going to be out of there fairly soon. The Iraqis are anxious to get about the business of running Iraq themselves and blaming us for whatever they can think of, just like everyone else in the world does.

A part will be recovered, a part will be unrecoverable, and a part will disappear forever somewhere in private collections in Europe, Israel, or the United States...

True, the blame lies on the thieves, but also on the occupation regime which knew of the lootings before they happened and did nothing to prevent it. Responsible for the cultural crime of the century are the US military command together with the thieves.

Many of the destroyed tablets havent been translated yet, so a substantial part of the history of Humanity may be gone forever.

Thanks to Mr. George Bush and his war.

And while all of this is going on, Israel is busy invading the Gaza strip again. Thanks for your support!

Bush is such a whipping boy.

in less than a week during the second world war, a small group of men unleashed death on a great number in a span of about 5 minutes. you say the nazis killed more? yes, but the point is it took them longer compared to the instant death offered by the atomic bomb. a few days after the first bomb was dropped, another, dropped in the land of the rising sun. up of 15o,ooo dead in a five minute period. many more died through the years of radiation poisoning, and cancers and illness attained from merely living at thsoe sites. the world powers unleashed the seal of fate upon themselves on THAT day.

(btw, i know it'd be worse if we had invaded, but more civilians were sacrificed that way. either option was a sad one, and we can only live with the one we have made to be true)

Phoenix Cross the alternative was to invade millions would have been killed and had looked it up you would have seen that was apparent.

Mokuhadzushi you making assumptions based upon what is apparently a prejudice.

We did not go over there to becoem museum curators, we went there to liberate the people. It is not our job to watch over a museum. This is nothing compared to the attrocities Saddam and his sons did to the Iraqis.

Funny coming from a poster who lives in a country who was Iraq's primary weapons supplier knowing that those weapons were used on Iraqs own people to suppress them and kill more than in the US lead invasion. A country who claims it wants the best for Iraq but is not willing to forgive Iraqs debt which would help its new government and is more than the value of the stolen art. Funny how that works.

Also kind of hypocritical considering WWII. But of course that was just childs play compared to a huge screw up like some art being stolen (and of course no blame is given to the Iraqi police who should have been guarding it. They fled dispite not being targets).

Oops, to make it clear, I am poking fun.

posted on Apr, 20 2003 @ 07:26 PM
why are people blaming the US. Shouldn't we blame the people of Iraq who stole this crap, FOR STEALING IT?!?!?!?

posted on Apr, 20 2003 @ 07:43 PM
And I don't think this is part of the NWO. Maby if a demoncat was in office, because "It would heighten internat'l friendships, and provide jobs to millions". I think Bush wouldn't want to share his power with anyone else. (which is a good think, until a Red-diaper-doper-baby gets back in office)

HAHHA this is great this shows we won the war. If this is the only thing the liberals have to complain about mean we were pretty much flawless in the rest of he campain.
Its not like we bombed the musem or burned it down it was the civilians who took it. What about the muslims a couple centuries back that burned the Alaxadrian Library that erased thousands and thousands of years of writting from the face of the earth many one and only one books burnt.
Also did yall know Saddam looted the musem prior to him hidding? Did you know he took hunreds of ancient gold coins and melted them down for his personal treasury. Wonder how many priceless artifacts he kept for his private collection????? Also didnt the Iraqis anticipate the war i think we gave them enough time to get the stuff out of there. ONCE AGAIN BLAME THE CIVILIANS NOT BUSH!!!!!!!!!!
