: ... all the museums and universities that have raped and looted Iraqi artifacts for generations?
xxx That's the way I see it, too. BUT, what else can we do, anyway? I mean, this shouldn't be the way it is, but it is, so this is the best we can do for now - look at & appreciate the artifacts, via the web, that OUGHT to be in Iraq but are showcased in various European & U.S. institutions. We've degenerated to a "nation" that DEPENDS on a virtual reality to exist.... & pretty soon, we might not even have the rights to see these things on the web.... We'll all end up in some prison for being possible terrorists.
