Kindly, read this report by a Chicago University Professor about the Cultural Tragedy in Iraq , a full report on the looting of MUSEUMS, ARCHIVES and SITES .
...and don't forget that for decades Iraq has been at the forefront in protecting its vast collection of antiquities...even to appointing our own Dr George to the post....and, of course, the tragedy and destruction was brought to the art of Iraq, just as it was to the people, by foreign Christians who've plundered Iraq better than any Mongol horde could have...and they're still at it.
..But Christians have a long history of destroying sacred art, very like the Taliban in Afghanistan. Untold art treasures from centuries before were hauled out of churchhes and smashed by Christians...in Christian lands. Being such barbarians where their own religion and traditions are concerned it shouldn't be surprising they would behave this way towards Iraq...and everyone else.
