The US didn’t steal these things, it was some Indian dude who trafficked them. The US did the prosecuting and returning.

The US government can always be relied upon to do the right thing. After they have exhausted every other possibility.

But I thought we Americans were all bad?

Just when Americans go around and kill half a million civilians in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan after slaughtering millions in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. Or toppling democracies in Latin America to install right wing dictators.

All to open them up for exploitation by US corporations.

The people support the politicians that allow this to go on actually might be quite shitty though.


Evil-Cartographer t1_iw8woj4 wrote

My point exactly. And then half started foaming at the mouth with racism when the possibility that some from the countries we destroyed could become refugees here. Like who do you think made them refugees?

Yes, because the United States stole womens rights from Pakistan.

Just like to U.S to do the right things eventually, but by this point Grandma has a family here.

It was a criminal art dealer who stole the artifacts, not the US. The US didn’t even know he had the artifacts until they arrested him.

Country returns another countries treasures that they should have never of stolen in the first place.

Hurr durr, America bad! Oh, wait, let's try actually reading the article...

>187 were seized pursuant to the Office’s investigation into SUBHASH KAPOOR, while the remaining were recovered pursuant to other ongoing criminal investigations.

>(...)the Office indicted KAPOOR and his seven co-defendants for their conspiracy to traffic stolen antiquities.

Why read the article when I can just read the headline and make uninformed opinions.

What's that George Clooney movie "The Monuments Men"? In WW2 they saved 5 million pieces of art that had been stolen by Nazis.

"Many were the product of looting by Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. Others had been legitimately evacuated from museums for safekeeping. Monuments Men oversaw the safeguarding, cataloguing, removal and packing of all works from all these repositories."

They had to make up all the procedures because no army had ever thought of saving cultural property in this way before.
