When the passenger ship, the Lusitania, was sunk by a German submarine in 1915, it became one of the pivotal moments of World War I.  Should any individual have “salvage rights”–which means the right to strip the Lusitania bare and sell the artifacts (think about the Titanic)–to a critical part of world heritage?  The Irish government is doing the right thing, trying to protect it from possible exploitation by a profiteer.  Good work, Ireland.
