First of all, perps are Shia muslims. They have DESTROYED the majority of artifacts in museum, not looted them.
the stuff is still there, but in tiny shreds. Floors are covered with debris. From the description of the way how museum was destroyed I see there was deliberate plan to destroy in a such way that no reconstruction will be possible. Total write-off.
Liberal are appealing to our emotions and project the picture of poor city dwellers who stole a tile or two to feed their children. Not so, very few items will resurface on the grey antiquities market, because DESTRUCTION was the goal, not theft.
The biggest damage was in the subteranean vaults, because those items were never analyzed by archeologists.
Someone has ordered, organized and orechestrated destruction. With fake stories of looting liberals are protecting those criminals.
Why this was allowed to happen is totally different issue. U.S. Army is responsible for not preventing desctruction. One roof-mounted gun and grenade launcher on a Humvee could prevent it.
