What Happens There Stays There. Luckily.

Hamoud Mohsen al-Yacoubi, the director of the Iraqi tourism board, is trying to attract visitors to the country who don’t wear U.S. military uniforms. Sure Western sightseers would probably be kidnapped or killed, the infrastructure isn’t what it used to be when it was still in one piece, and many of the biggest tourist attractions have been damaged by careless troops, at least it’s not boring old Paris again. What they need is a catchy slogan, something like “See Iraq while there’s still something left” or “Iraq—it’s more than just oil.” Or maybe “I Iraq.” Book your vacation today while the hotel’s still standing.
