suggested a new slogan for anti-war protesters: "Save the Statues". How about "Save the Palaces"? Several people have objected to the "looting" of Saddam's palaces by US soldiers.
Here's "Road to Surfdom" blogger Tim Dunlop on the subject:
These were soldiers who had captured the enemy leader's dwelling. How detached from reality do you have to be to complain that they examined documents? Does Dunlop think that the 3ID needs a search warrant?
(I learned from the comments section that it's fun to be a lefty blogger. Cause if anyone criticizes you, you just call them "freepers" and morons, then move on to your next triumph.)
And here's a letter to the editor in today's San Jose Mercury News:
The palaces are not "the property of the Iraqi people". If anyone from the Iraqi government ever said that, it was a lie devised by Saddam to excuse his corruption and greed.
It seems to me that if Schneyer is going to take dictators' word as gospel, then he must also object to the liberation of 100 Iraqi children from a children's prison. After all, the Baathists would also classify that prison as "property of the Iraqi people".
