    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:

    36. Nina Kurdishhh

      Beautiful video but we’d really appreciate it if u don’t call us iraqis bc it is really offensive to kurdistan people idk why baderkhan didn’t tell u maybe it was okay for him but for majority of kurds it is :)

    37. HunterOfJoke

    51. Rozhin Sabir


    52. Benjamin D

      The Iraqi Christians people are called Assyrian and Chaldean. They are not Arab or Kurdish. The world needs to know the truth. Don’t believe when they say Christian that they are talking about Kurds or Arabs. Please people do some more research.

    53. Pascal Konzack

      I love this mans laugh. You know it's not staged!

      This really changed my perspective on Iraq and its beautiful people. Thank you for the work you do, Yes Theory 🙏🏽❤️

      1. Blue Planet

        It's Kurdistan north of Iraq. It really is very different than actual Iraq. You are more than welcome if you want to know more about it to ask. Much love and Respect! 🙏

    58. Elicia Eldridge

      It does feel strange that there aren't many women around hopefully this can also change in the next generation.

    59. XXXxxxXXX

      This video made me very emotional. I was born in Iraqi Kurdistan and escaped because of the war. I've never seen my homeland until now. Thank you!!

      Long live Kurdistan

    64. Dylan Chiarello

      After watching this, i can see how ungrateful people here in the U.S are... this really changes my mindset on the world, they have so little and have been through so much yet they laugh and make the best of it, coming from me someone who lives in Miami there’s people upset they don’t have a Mercedes... it just shows you how you really don’t need anything in this world but family, love and a different perspective to be happy! I’m very moved by this!

    65. MIchael B

      What a masterpiece! Thank you for sharing this!

    66. Official Toxins

      Baderkhan stole the show with his great personality

    67. KURDISTAN [NS]

      My lovely brother we are not iraq we are kurdistan i agree with you that we are not country but the day we come and we will be country

    68. duro says hi

      Looks Awsome there ! My dad is currently deployed there in the war he tells me the candy and foods are Awsome there but it’s still super dangerous because his base got attacked, but he’s fine .And that’s why it’s never safe in country’s like that .

    69. Ro plays

      We're going to go to kurdistan during summer I can't wait to see family there that we haven't seen for 6 years crazy🤯🤯

      Hay Guy, that is not Iraq. Only part of Iraq, it means only north part Iraq. So, come to central Iraq where is Baghdad. Welcome, I am in Karbala, my nationality is Korean.

    73. matin lurkurd

      Kurdistan is not iraq, we are just kurd , plz dont insult us by calling us iraqi

    75. Kaushik B

      In india we say "if you laugh too much u will cry later". It's like maintaining a perfect balance as all things should be

        Same in Turkey🤣

    76. Up Syndrome Dog

      Brilliant vid I love all your videos

    77. WindsorEssexrocks

      Though I’ve been slowly exploring all the yes theory adventures, this vid was the one I shared with several friends and family members. Exploring places no one was allowed into through the connections of your guide, Baderkahn and his contagious laugh, it just needed to be shared. Got an ad to seek discomfort merch and was browsing the site when Lexi expressed the difference between male and female travellers. I couldn’t clap loud enough and I’m glad she raised your awareness. I wish I could have gone the places I wanted when I first lived in Europe but I was too scared. She’s inspirational thank you for sharing. Lookin forward to my merch! 😻

    78. Ondřej Zelený

      Its ironic how the stereotypes tend to fill our heads what a butthole of a world these countries are (Iraq, Afghanistan), but holy moly, people who life there are the most beautiful, friendly people i have ever seen. I live in central Europe and people in here are so disconnected.

    79. Ahmed Bassem

      This is only part of Iraq, you haven't seen all of Iraq.

      This is a very wide eye opening for everyone. We are all people, even if we don't have same religious beliefs but we all have our own God. We all deserve to be loved. "Changing one mindset, even if slow progress. One will call me tourist and not terrorist'" I was really touched by this. Thank you so much Yes Theory!
