Oil vs. Art:Guess Who Wins? You may have heard by now, but amidst all the looting in Bagdhad, many museums filled with millenia old artifacts were stolen or destroyed. The US military did not stop the carnage of this nation's heritage, but it did protect the Oil Ministry.Gee, I'm so glad that Washington was so willing to care for Iraq's percious treasure. On public radio this morning, a caller basically said we should not put our men and women's lives at risk for art. So, we can put their lives on the line to gas our SUV's? Methinks our priorities are really screwed up. If you want to read more about this sad spectacle, read Joe Conason's piece in Salon.
