Baghdad is an ancient and beautiful city with many important sites of historic interest. When Saddam has gone, it may be possible to visit it freely. To fully appreciate the beauty of Iraq, I recommend learning Iraqi Arabic. Start with the Muslim "gilit" dialects, such as in this recording, and then make your way to the Jewish/Kurdish "qeltu" dialects, listed here. If you need any help, just write to RibbityFrog@netscape.net.
