What's Going On In .iq?

Hey, let's visit with another domain name extension. This time we'll be visiting the pages of Iraq (.iq).

I'm going to be linking to pages that are in the English language. Please realize that whatever I'm reading might be tailored for an English-reading audience.

One might think that there would be a plethora of Iraqi pages in English, but one would be mistaken.

So what's on Iraqi websites?


Ministry of Electricity - Rationalization

University of Baghdad working to be active partner at the Proposed Initiative of MIT LINC (University of Baghdad e-Portal -- 03/16/2008)

Traffic Martyrs Pictures (Iraq Traffic Police)

Ministry of Trade discusses impediments conveyance the ration card items and make the solutions in front of the council of ministers. (Iraq Ministry of Trade - News)

Iraq Operation unit in Amman (UNHCR - The UN Refugee Agency)


If you want to do your own searching of the .iq domain, you can use Google to enter your search criteria, adding the text site:.iq.

For example, here's a search for Splotchy:

Did you find any Iraqi porn sites?

That Iraq "traffic martyrs" was just too tempting to not click, but holy hell it's creepy. What's with the cartoon-ized photographs? And just what must one do to be labelled a "traffic martyr?" Die in a car wreck? Be blown to bits in the street by a car bomb or a US missile?

I need answers, Splotch. You can't just leave a link like that and not provide some info, sir!

dr z, none that I would recognize as such.

d, I dunno what to make of the martyr website. I don't have answers, only questions. Sorry!
