History in Flames

Jeremy talks about the burning of Iraqi libraries and museums, some of which house items thousands of years old:

As I say, I'm having a hard time with this so don't expect rational arguments from me. I guess Bush and company can be happy that their war finally achieved something that will keep it in the history books for a long time to come.

Like our Shrub, I went through a period in my life when I didn't value museums or libraries, too. I think I was about six. 🙁

  1. Oh, come on. The people complaining about these museums are the same people who wanted to leave Iraqis in oppression. Be consistent.

    What does bombing the hell out of Iraq have to do with its museums? Do you also burn kittens for fun?

    There is nothing to be consistent about.

    1. I am against the war on Iraq.

    2. I am for impeaching Shrub (as firmly as any libertarian, green, or democrat).

    3. I am for preserving history, which is what those museums represent and contain.

    These things are not connected in any way, you Rush-licking moron.
