Haha No I still didn't get there but I got pretty close. At Mt Bental I was standing on the UN trenches and I could see the fence for the border. I could see the border crossing I couldn't use and I could see what was left of Deriq and the new city built in its place.
The ********s at ISIL bombed a kindy in Damascus (the oldest capitol city in the world) last week and they are advancing on Bagdad so I will probably never get to see these ...
