If I had the opportunity I'd do it. 160k for two years trade work is extremely good pay. Then, it's over, you can retire (or at least take a long break), and you got an exciting story of danger to tell the grandkids. It's not that risky, especialy if we get a regime change next January.

160k for 2 years isnt all that special. 80k a year can be done inside the US or in SAFER countries with the right skillsets.

it would take at LEAST 160k a YEAR to get me to iraq.

Dude........It is SO dangerous over there. They hate Americans....Americans steal from them and burn their houses down. You don't hear that on the regular news, but I have been hearing about it on Democracy now....it is not a safe place, that's why they are offering you the cash!

If you consider the amount of americans over there and the amounts of deaths for non army its probably safer than driving around in a crazed city!

I don't know, I have never read statistics, just know it's crazy. Who knows though, maybe it would be a damn good adventure. I'm sure there is plenty you could do to help people out too. I wouldn't do it though!

you realize tons of places there dont even have running water? Refrigeration is hardly anywhere, its not safe to be outside at all of your compound without armed guards.. etc.

My work is split base in India and the US. Let me tell you, India is lightyears safer and more 'comfortable' then IRAQ is right now and my coworkers come back with nothing but horror stories.

seriously, where do you guys get off thinking 80k a year is a ton of money?

once you get past 22 and have a real job, 80k aint SHIT to risk your life over.

80k is like a nice/good/better then average job here in the states. Let alone to fly across teh world to a hate filled country torn apart with no life luxaries and risks of illness, death, sickness etc.
