    Just look at them killing those defenceless statues! Even the modern copies weren't safe!

    The destruction of ancient artifacts in Iraq would never have happened had Saddam Hussein still been president of that unfortunate country. Thank GW Bush and the Neocons for unleashing the dogs of hell!

    Yeah Saddam was such a nice person. Y'know, when he wasn't being too busy with torturing little children and all.

    Oh well.

    I realize these aren't lives, but they are Priceless artefacts from Mesopotamia/The Cradle of Civilization.
    Many Assyrian and Akkadian.
    Video within Guardian Link but I will supply another at the bottom of this post from youtube; more easily watched and slightly longer
    The original is said to be 5 minutes.

    I remember the last time this happened and rare and precious antiquities were looted and destroyed. As soon as Bush invaded Iraq and failed to secure them. I wonder how many more countries Americans are going to allow their leaders to destroy before there's something done about it?

    That's right!
    Blame it on America.. and the Buddhas al-Qaeda destroyed too.
    And the perennial Destruction of Jewish Artefacts near the Temple mount and ie, Jew's Third Holeist Place, Joseph's Tomb, too.

    Of course, destruction of other's artefacts is a 1400 year old Tradition in Islam.
    I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.

    Saddam was a brutal despot, but he was a secularist and had this Islamic fundamentalist insanity under control until the U.S interfered.

    He wasn't much better-but we got rid of him. This president directly contributed to the rise of ISIS by losing the peace in Iraq.

    I don't have to blame anything. Are you denying the loss of antiquities in Iraq as a result of Bush's 2003 invasion and occupation of that country, hmm?

    Just like Assad had it under control over there in Syria until those Americans intervened eh?
    And what kind of logic is there in advocating one type of crazy over the other? Saddam had tormented far more souls than ISIS did so far.

    You keep repeating this without any evidence. Can you show us what made Iraq peaceful in 2008? I'll wait.
