Baghdad Diplomatic Shop Offers Strictly the Necessities: Tactical Gear, Liquor

Print comment Post Comments
How do you get your hands on a bottle of Gordon's in the middle of a war zone?

If you're a diplomat/ambassador/whatever and you're lucky enough to be stationed in Baghdad and not some hellhole like Paris or Tahiti, your options are fairly limited.

But Foreign Service officers and other officials in Iraq have the luxury of stocking up on supplies at the diplomatic shop in the Green Zone, which, according to its operators, is "easily accessible from all other areas of Baghdad International Airport , International Green Zone, Victory Base Complex and US military camps."

The Iraq Duty Free website proudly claims:

This shop has two specialties -- liquor, tactical gear.

And that sort of covers the absolute essentials in Baghdad these days, no?
POSITION:  No positions in stocks mentioned.
