Metallica vs. Iraqis

Lars Ulrich is upset that the US military is using Metallica music music to “torture” Iraqi POWS. Somehow he seems to missing the point that the military is, by definition, giving a concert to Iraqi prisoners and that this is obviously a case for the RIAA so that Metallica can get their royalties.

Of course, as Lars so eloqouently put it: “What am I supposed to do about it” […] “get George Bush on the phone and tell him to get his generals to play some Venom?”

No Lars, we’re trying to punish the prisoners.
