US colonel offers Iraq an apology of sorts for devastation of Babylon

“All of these things have combined to do a lot of damage to what is one of the most important, sensitive archeological sites in the whole world,” John Curtis, curator of the British Museum’s Near East department, said last year.

Col Coleman’s repentance was qualified. “If it wasn’t for our presence,” he told the BBC, “what would the state of those archeological ruins be?” – a repeat of the US claim that had its forces not occupied ancient Babylon, the site would have been laid waste by looters.

“Is there a price for the presence? Sure there is,” he declared. “I’ll just say that the price, had the presence not been there, would have been far greater.” >>>>>

For him to believe this means that his apology is not sincere in the least bit.
