More on the looting:http://www.msnbc.com/news/902234.asp?0cv=CB10Were Iraq's antiquity thieves ready? They may have known just what they were looking forbecause dealers ordered key pieces well in advance... Whatever their tribal and religious differences, all Iraqis can be proud of one thing: On their soil modern civilization was born. Cities were invented in what is now Iraq. So was writing and even an early form of democracy. So it doesn't sound overblown when Elizabeth C. Stone, a professor of anthropology at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, ranks the looting of the Baghdad Museum with the burning of the Great Library at Alexandria or the rape of Aztec and Inca cultures by the conquistadors. Iraq, says Stone, is a country “whose past has been decapitated.” Ellen
