    I note this comment on that article:
    'This resort is a symbol of corruption as it is owned by the warlords!'

    If you want to ski in the USA for 5 years after might be worth a re-think

    3hr drive from the capital city of ISIS in a corrupted country?

    In the Kurdish area, security is probably ok, . Anyone from ISIS near there is a dead man walking (literally). And besides who wants to go to the USA anyway, probably more chance of getting shot there than in Kurdistan.
