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:

    "We just don't like politicians/politics no matter who you are." Can't agree anymore! "Some politicians/regime spread hate in order to rule people easily." Hope more people could know this.

    lol. kurds never kicked saddam out of north iraq, opposite they kissed his feet even tho he massacred them, they did not fight him they was slaves for him. i cant believe they have balls to say they kicked that evil bastard saddam out of north iraq lol. there is so many evidence on the internet prooving otherwise and they were kissing his feet lmao.

    Please do not repeat the word Iraq ... You are here in the land of the Kurds (Kurdistan) and we are the people of Kurdistan, "most of us" do not like to hear the word Iraq on its land, because we have been subjected to injustice and persecution at the hands of the Iraqis .... and also because we deserve to be an independent state as a natural right We have (self-determination), and this is what Iraq and the neighboring countries do not want

    What a different perspective you guys have given on the Middle East... makes me happy and sad at the same time. I live in the states and was a young adult when 9/11 happened. It truly had skewed my thoughts on the Middle East in such an unfair and biased way. Thank you for sharing this.

    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 SEtoos'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.
