Looting, Iraqi style

Yea, against those oppressors at the school and the Sheraton Hotel....

A group of looters targeted schools and shops and one man walked with a chandelier under his arm. And at the Sheraton Hotel, people loaded chairs and sofas into horse-drawn carts. Some even wheeled the hotel's grand piano down a street.

Lookie, lookie, some of that looting is being done against the fine people of Iraq we were to liberate! Must be some more collateral damage, oops!

But they appear to be just as terrified, if not more so, of their new rulers - a little-known Iraqi militia backed by the US special forces and headquartered in a compound nearby.

The Iraqi Coalition of National Unity (ICNU), which appeared in the city last week riding on US special forces vehicles, has taken to looting and terrorising their neighbourhood with impunity, according to most residents.

Re: Re: Looting, Iraqi style

I never said anything even clsoe to what you claim. And yes, the Sheraton is a part of the regime that opressed the poor people of IRaq. No, the Sheraton corp isnt...but the extravagance spent on visitors and the regime, vice the quality of life for the bulk of population, is evident. All made possible from the the regime that you steadfastly support.
Sad.

I agree totally. They have been surviving on crumbs while their leaders eat cake. Its time they took it all back!!! For the formally oppressed and now liberated Iraqi's:

GO GET U SOME!!
