    They fled the Saddam Hussein regime because people were being beheaded or told to leave if they were Kurdish or Iranian. They had no choice but to leave. My family moved to the UK in the 90s.

    Have you ever been to Iraq? Always thought it was completely off limits but i recently saw a news documentary about a bunch of elderly british tourists who still decided to visit iraq (including baghdad) and took pictures of all the ruins etc and said that the news just makes it out to be a danger zone but its actually quite safe. makes me tempted to go and visit, i bet there is a lot of beauty there.
