: Roger L. Simon says he’d loot:
What’s with all this tut-tutting in the media about looters in Iraq? Gimme a break! If you were the citizen of a country where you had to live under the thumb of a sadistic, psychotic, homicidal maniac dictator who had his people murdered, tortured and raped and stole practically every penny they had on top of that for twenty-four years, wouldn’t you do a little looting after liberation? Hell, I would. In fact, I’d probably do a lot of looting. I’d probably grab everything I could from those assholes that wasn’t tied down by a thousand pound lead weight!
And I wasn’t at all surprised to read in John Burns’ NYTimes article that two of the most popular places for pillage were the German and French Embassies. Right on!
