CNN laid out non-stop Cakewalk Science... They still are.

All the science $20 trillion worth of weapons systems and spying gear could buy.

Much the gear and science purchased from China.

Fifteen years after looting, thousands of artefacts are still missing from Iraq’s national museum


The loss of these sites and artefacts is disastrous for humanity. The Baghdad looting has shown that in times of conflict, not even a museum can necessarily provide a sanctuary, without meaningful policies of protection. Sadly, it appears we have not learnt the lessons of April 2003.



Some speculate that this war and invasion was about covering up new discoveries that would have upturned our entire mainstream provided history.

But it would be a mistake to assume that Rumsfeld’s strategic preference for speed, the rush to war, or even the tactical decision to punch into Baghdad were the only factors sealing the fate of the museum. There were also deep-seated, longer-term structural impediments, within both the military and the Bush administration, that blocked the development of assets capable of being deployed to protect museums and archaeological sites, had Pentagon policy makers or United States Central Command (USCENTCOM) planners wished to do so




Against all military protocol, forces made a direct bee-line for the museum, not even reinforcing their lines of supply.
***All in my opinion of course***
