I believe that Iraq's future depends on many factors. One of those factors includes the strength of the connection that is built between Iraq and every other country in the world, not just First World Western countries. I believe that aviation will help Iraq prosper and build great political connections with other countries. We all know that 100 years ago the Earth shrunk dramatically with the first controlled, powered flight, by the Wright Brothers. I can see Iraq creating a partly-government subsidized airline, as well as many foreign carriers taking advantage of the many route opportunities that now exist. Aviation in the Middle East will never be the same again! I can't wait to see what kind of aircraft will be used on the Iraqi routes by all of the airlines that will eventually fly into Baghdad Int'l and the other airports within Iraq!
WITHOUT POSTING A POLITICAL EDITORIAL ON IRAQ AND STATING YOUR BELIEFS ABOUT THE WAR IN IRAQ, WHICH IS ENTIRELY UNNECESSARY TO PARTICIAPTE IN THIS DISCUSSION, what do you believe aviation's impact will be in Iraq?
