Showcase The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly

with one comment

I understand that showcasing Saddam Hussein’s palatial riches is a testament to Iraq and the Iraqi people’s freedoms and empirical inheritance. But these opulent jewels, artwork, and historical treasures were bought and paid for through the blood of dictatorship, torture, and genocide.

Hopefully the museum will also have a “Chamber of Horrors” that will be a memorial to all those who died under Saddam’s tyranny so the world and the Iraqi people never forget.
