It should just come out of the billions the government gives to Israel every year.

My buddy's an electrician. Can't get any work around here. Went to Iraq to make (at least) double pay, no expenses, etc. to help get that shithole up and running. Fucking joke. Can't make a living here but can make $ rebuilding desert that didn't want it.

Good luck to your pal. The money is there for any tradesman willing to take the risk. Is he a master or journeyman? Is he union? (I'm guessing probably not.)

The rule used to be that Plumbers and Electricians were immune to recession. I guess that's not the case anymore.

Beer is probably difficult to get over there... But then again I'd earn 95k and probably lose 20lbs.

Tough call.

Some of you are absolute retards.

1) You couldn't pay me a million bucks tax free to live and work in Iraq.

2) Playa del carmen isn't 1/100th as bad as any other part of Mexico and you are an absolute moron if you avoid it as if its a war-torn part of the world.

like Sim said, its gorgeous and the people are wonderful.

Cancun is like any other city in the world. Go where you're supposed to go and you're fine. Go where you're not supposed to go and look out.

MCA you have a family. Obviously you don't take that risk.

But it could be very lucrative. I can see why people would do it.

Kid if I was single I wouldn't do it. I'm a Jew who won't EVER travel to Israel.

WTF do I want to GO TO A WARZONE for?? I'm the same kid who said I didn't like taking the Red Line to its end.

My friend got offered 200k to go to Tel Aviv to be a consultant for a jewelry company(?) and told them to go fuck themselves. But I'd go to Iraq in one of those army/security protected compound.
