This week, I traveled to the beautiful country of Iraq. All my life I'd heard of the war in Iraq and how dangerous it was to visit, but I wanted to go there and explore if for myself to hear the stories that didn't make it into the media. So, along with Drew Binsky, Lexie Alford and Cory Martin, we were taken around Iraqi Kurdistan by our amazing guide, Baderkhan.
Thank you to Lexie Limitless for joining us on this crazy adventure:

Kurdistan for independence from Iraq Iran Turkey the time has come to give the kurds a homeland they can call their own country shame on the British and French governments of the 1920s for not giving the kurds their own country

Southern Iraq holds so many bad memories for me. The fight for basra opened my eyes to war as a fresh 18 year old just out of basic training a few weeks before the invasion the initial battle wasn't bad it was what came after it the suicide bombings then blue on blue friendly fire incidents that really freaked me out a little. Couldn't sleep for about two days when home on R&R in the mid summer I seen the vivid image of a young girl laying halved in two from a mahdi army ied. I dont know why I didn't leave the army in 04 when I got home instead I stayed in the military until I was left severely injured and disabled in 2010 in nad-e-ali I wish I had listened to my mother and my girlfriend now my wife at the time when I came home in 04 maybe I just would have my sanity and my limbs on the right side

I'm from India & follow one of the world's oldest religion : Zoroastrian which was followed in Persia as well as throughout the region. Who is this wonderful, marvelous & ever so inspiring person from Kurdistan? I am so motivated by his outlook to life & the way he says ' when you laugh, you give as much of positive energy to get it back ' Is he a USlift'er too ? Can I subscribe to his channel ? May the Good lord bless him always. 🙏

I live in Basra Iraq there was no reason for you guys to get scared to go into Iraq and the host scared you as well obviously the soldier is gonna ask who they are especially around that area but even if they knew who you were they wouldn't have done anything. if you wanted to see the real Iraq come to Karbala Baghdad Basra. btw the 100$ behind the glass is a currency exchange and he takes his precautions there's definitely a weapon hidden near him. I did love the video though.... much love from Basra Iraq.

The Iraqi Christians people are called Assyrian and Chaldean. They are not Arab or Kurdish. The world needs to know the truth. Don’t believe when they say Christian that they are talking about Kurds or Arabs. Please people do some more research.
