Slightly different take on the issue here. If I think of Bagdad and try to forget Sadam, the dust and the oppression, it feels like the city would be a beautiful enchanting place. The kind of Aladdin and Jafaar type place with temples and spice markets. Am I mental or was this the case, has it been deadened and greyed by all the conflict and oppression?

The same could have been said about Lebanon 40 years ago.... (Bethlehem 40 years ago....)

so the answer is yes then? I wonder if anyone knows a website that doesnt focus on the war that could back up my imagination?
sorry yes the answer is yes - it is because of our inbuilt requirement to bomb the [email protected] out of everything that is wonderful in this world, that we are destined to go to ruin.
Are you after the Arabian Nights type of pictures comloulou? This is quite a large site, the historical link should give you a flavour of the place. http://users.pandora.be/juergen.forster/Iraq_Anfan

thankyou Cetti!
Well, have you noticed the live pictures from Baghdad? I mean, when there's not bits of the city flying around the place. It looks quite nice, green, with beautiful buildings; in fact, one of the first civilisations on earth was started in Baghdad, or near enough - the Babylonians. Maybe you could go on holiday there...or then again, maybe not, considering the possibilities...
