Here, there, and everywhere.
The recent gains by the radical jihadist group the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) and its assorted allies helps to perpetuate this view. Iraq seems like a hopelessly broken place.

But before its decades of war and totalitarian rule, Iraq was a quickly modernizing country. The British archival footage company Pathe recently shared a travel reel that showcased the beauty and diversity of scenery found throughout the country between 1950 and 1959 on YouTube.

Below we have some photos that highlight what Iraq was like before decades of war and conflict affected the count:

No doubt propaganda. I only say so because I know a guy who was in the army who went back as a body guard for a number of years. Iraq is totally different to what is portrayed on the news and media. You do get the odd area that's war torn, but the majority doesn't look like that, according to my mate that was there.

I can't find a reason why my mate would lie to me.
