    Ha ha ha, spinning your wheels now joG. I'll ignore the slander and just point out that not only did Bush fail to protect in some instances, he purposely destroyed antiquities in others to make room for airfields and bases.

    Reuters breaking news headline:

    Breaking News: ISIS overruns Iraqi defenses east of Ramadi: police and pro-government fighters

    It appears that ISIS is currently waging a large-scale offensive. I'm not yet sure whether the defenses in question were those that lay between Ramadi and the gathering Shia militia. However, ISIS did carry out a rather small-scale probing attack aimed at the militia since the fall of Ramadi. If, in fact, ISIS now has a clear shot at the militia, another major battle might be forthcoming.

    Repeat until you're blue in the face, if you wish. Middle eastern cultural antiquities are all of importance, not just the ones that are threatened by the Islamic state. I suppose the ones you are unconcerned about, the ones that Bush failed to protect, along with the other ones he destroyed to make room for hello pads and base infrastructure are an embarrassment to you and as such, better ignored.

    LOL. I wouldn't dream of keeping you from the visceral hate that seems to drive your one sided opinions.

    Hahaha, that's your defense of Bush's failed ME policies. No surprise ignoring it is all you've got. Obviously, cultural antiquities, and their preservation, is low on the fringe rights totem pole.

    You should consider changing up the rhetoric every once in awhile.

    The US damaged historical sites and allowed looting...fine! No denials! Satisfied? Good!

    Now, let's go back to discussing ISIS, hmmm?
