    Basrah is not the same as 20 30 years ago , it was an open city, find women working in bars , as at that time there was no coffee shops , now days extremist shiaat clergies from ALFADHILA whose gone wild , killing and bombing such recreation places , unless Iraq is gone moderate , otherwise \ situation becomes worse . it is not Basrah , but if you have notiv=ced that most of local TV do not broadcast folk songs , Iraq , specially south , is famouse of breading local folk singers , no government ever stopped or was against folk singers like KHUDHAIRI ABU AZIZ , JWAD WADI,

    In time of Baath party everyone wears green Military fatigue , just like senior Baath party members , now every one becomes SAID , or shiaat clergies , you find them stealing public wealth , but in the same time prohibits alcohol , coffee shops , even production of alcohol for industrial use is banned by laws passed by the ill fated iraqi parliament , both sunni and shiaat voted for the prohibition , both are thieves , rovers , pimps( believe it or not ), both compete for higher political positions ,but they are after higher stake of Iraqs wealth , both never knew what is sovereignty means , both works for a neighboring country , shiaat for Iranians , sunnies for Saudi Arabia, QATAR and TURKEY, both wants to have the upper hand on there own people , resulting in disasters for Iraq , coffee shops , resorts are an ancient history in iraq < not including KRG , wher you can have any recreation you want , even it is not to the European standards, but at least you are free to drink a cold beer whenever you want .
