When they say no, remind them so Iraq is sooo accessible these days, that anybody in London can just hop on an Iraqi Airways flight and be there the same day. That’s right, as reported by the Guardian, as of April 26th, the 20-year-old ban on flights between the two countries has been lifted.
Then knock their cup of ramen over in a sign of hostility and turn and walk away. It will feel so good.
