'It is the death of history.'

'2,000 year-old Sumerian cities torn apart and plundered by robbers. The very walls of the mighty Ur of the Chaldees cracking under the strain of massive troop movements, the privatisation of looting as landlords buy up the remaining sites if ancient Mesopotamia to strip them of their artefacts and wealth. The near total destruction of Iraq's historic past- the very cradle of human civilisation- has emerged as one of the most shameful symbols of our disastrous occupation.'
