Driving around our country.

We take it for granted being able to tour around in the Uk. We do not worry about being stopped by Police or being attacked by locals in another part of our country. We just jump into our cars without much thought and enjoy the countryside and seaside resorts.

Iraq is riddled with sectarian violence and the 6 million residents of Baghdad live from day to day in the fear of violence against them. They naturally want to get away from it all but where to? They can remember holidays to places within Iraq that they enjoyed before the illegal invasion of Iraq in 2003. Baghdad Treasure writes about the anxiety of his trip with friends to Northern Iraq. He wonders if he was jumping from the frying pan into the fire. This tale informs the reader of the gritty reality of life in Iraq for the average man in the street where you wonder if the Police are actually police and whether the locals may suddenly turn very nasty indeed. Terror has no religion and can strike unexpectedly as this 1 minute 04 seconds of video shows. It is a mock up of a suicide bomber but excellently shot, as a piece of advertising footage it is top rate and gets it's message across very well.
