Ok, then I misunderstood the issue. That 160 limit in the UAE sounds real dangerous, considering there are a lot of SUV's there. My cousin got killed doing 200 kmh between Dubai and Abu Dhabi, her brother (passenger) survived miraculously.

There is no 160 limit in the UAE. The maximumspeed is 120 km/h on motorways. I have never seen a higher limit there.

I hope Iraq will be once again a free-happy country. Thousand of years old Mesopotamia culture will eventually find its way out.

And Iraq probably would still have good infrastructure if it hadn't of decided to wage war on it's neighbour.

You can't blame the US for that, the sanctions it suffered were justified!

No they weren't. The U.S. prevented much needed civilian aid from reaching the country by classifying it, absurdly, as "dual-use", as if somehow food and medicine could be turned into weapons.

As a result of these nefarious sanctions, 500,000 Iraqi children died and the country became one of the poorest and least developed in the world. But then again, the West never cared for the welfare of the Iraqi people. Hussein was a good guy compared to the butchery the two U.S.-led invasions caused.

America should suffer sanctions as a result of its egregious and murderous war.

And this self-loathing rant has to do with Iraqi roads in what way?

Yeah, 10 years of lost wars with your neighboors have nothing to do with it at all...

No the limit is 120 km/h, but speed camera's in AD won't flash until you're driving over 160 km/h. So everybody drives 160 km/h...

In Dubai they do flash when you go over 120 km/h though!

Many roads in Iraq were built by Brazilian contractors in the 1980s, does anyone know more about that, like which roads?

It's not easy to go to iraq. you have to have visa and you have to go in caravans not by your own. And now I am not in Iran.
