    Islamic State isnít just destroying ancient artifacts ó itís selling them

    I guess their allowance from our military-industrial complex isn't enough.

    Islamic State isn

    Islamic State militants have provoked a global outcry by attacking ancient monuments with jackhammers and bulldozers. But they also have been quietly selling off smaller antiquities from Iraq and Syria, earning millions of dollars in an increasingly organized pillaging of national treasures, according to officials and experts. The Islamic State has defended its destruction of cultural artifacts by saying they are idolatrous and represent pre-Islamic cultures. Behind the scenes, though, the groupís looting has become so systematic that the Islamic State has incorporated the practice into the structure of its self-declared caliphate, granting *licenses for digging at historic sites through a department of ďprecious resources.Ē

    That's actually better than destroying them.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    This belongs in a museum!

    ...did any of Indiana Jones' artifacts actually end up in a museum?
