Cool. I wonder how long it'll be before some of the smaller portraits and statues they have over there start ending up on ebay. I know somebody that collects dictator-related artwork who'd jump at the chance to grab some of that stuff...

What I really want is an iraqi office chair.

Heh. The guy selling all the stuff has labelled one of the auctions "SADDAM currency desert storm iraq sex adult 1". "Good luck bidding and bless our troops," he goes on to say.

I've got the same sentiments... Someone else is willing to pay $500 for an iraqi palace chair. check it out.... I wouldn't pay that much though.

If I read that auction right, the guy is willing to take an iraqi palace chair off someone for the fee of $500. That sounds like a pretty sweet deal, actually. $500 and a throne!
