Just try to imagine how much older some of these peaces are compared to the United States itself. ...gone forever.

Ouch. It's not just people in Iraq who are angry about this stuff for obvious reasons. Some of the stuff ripped off pertained to the Sumerian inventions of our system of telling time--everytime you look at a watch or clock, that's a Sumerian system you are looking at. Ditto for calendars, and writing! They had the first alphabet! This is a monstrous crime that affects culture all over the globe, not just in Iraq.
