"The Other Iraq": Vacation in Kurdistan

Tell me that Iraq isn’t embracing democracy now! Well, okay, some of it is still a little dicey, but not a good sized chunk of Iraq called Kurdistan.

Did you know there’s a “Kurdistan Development Corporation“? The group has recently created some advertisements seeking to lure vacationers and investors to the region. They’ve come up with the tagline of “Kurdistan: The Other Iraq.”

Like any state here in the United States, they’re also spending money on ads. There are three of them that you can watch here. Or, watch them on The Daily Show as Jon Stewart provides running commentary.

Here are a couple of other suggested slogans for the Kurdistan Development Corporation:

“Thanks for nothing, liberals”

“If beheadings aren’t becoming to you, you should beheading to us”

“It’s a gas, but only in the American 60’s sense of the word”

“Suck it, Saddam”

“Iraq Lite: All the flavor, 1/3 less crazy”

“I’d walk a camel for a mile”

“What happens in Kurdistan, stays in Kurdistan”

“Where loose lips sink… absolutely nothing — this is the desert!”


Seriously, I hope this all works out well for them. The Kurds better be careful — if they become too prosperous among the backwards areas in the region, they’ll become the next Israel. “Incoming!”

I might give Kurdistan a shot, but it can’t be more fun than my vacation in Afghanistan.
