indiana jones and the temple of loot

whoops! magpie links us to a report that says those nutty baghdads (apparently, no baghmoms involved) are not just stealing from saddam's palaces, but from their own cultural heritage as well!

looters ransack baghdad museum:

thousands of valuable historical items from baghdad's main museum have been taken or destroyed by looters.

nabhal amin, deputy director at the iraqi national museum, blamed the destruction on the united states for not taking control of the situation on the streets.

on saturday, unesco - the un's cultural agency - has urged the us and britain to deploy troops at iraq's key archaeological sites and museums to stop widespread looting and destruction.
