Sad thing with hookahs and supplies in the Iraqi markets is that its really better in the states sometimes than it is over there, the country has a lot of issues, and getting better tobacco and coals isnt anywhere near the top on their list of things to do

I haven't been in Iraq since before the invasion and as bad as things were then with the embargo, weekly bombing raids and sponsored sectarian mayhem I found a lot to like. The people seemed very friendly and highly educated and polite to a fault. Narghile wise the country was a dream with lots of black moassel and tons of fruity brands you never heard of from all over. I wish I could have visited prior to the embargo but I never had the chance.

These days between sectarian murder squads, the Americans, mercenaries, a quarter of the population refugees, a lack of electricity, water or sewage treatment the prospect of going there just depresses me.

Bummer PL. I hope you make it out of there with with your body, mind and soul intact. I wish you could have seen it before the war, especially the book district in Baghdad (the name slips my mind) since it was really something. When I was there the economy was basically shot (but far better then it is these days) and I didn't come upon any locally made moassels but my guess is that they went under as a result of the embargoes.
