In the present climate taking a vacation in Iraq may seem a little unwise, but Basra's tourism manager is confident his country's ancient heritage and beautiful beaches will lure holidaymakers.

Wow, this guy may have something here. I don't think it's what he is imagining, but he does have something here.

This is so pitiful that I don't know if I should laught or cry, I feel so sorry for the people of Iraq that not apology is enough to aliviate their their sorrow. Nice link BOHICA.

How can people don't feel the pitiful attemps of this people to restore something close to normacy.

Iraq such a rich country in history and relics has been turn into rubble. what a pity.

O.K maybe in about 30 years or more Iraq will become a tourist attraction but certainly not this decade with all the kidnappings going on it wont help there country flourish.
