The below post is key from your link. It identifies the market Alisveris Merkezi and a reference to Besiktas, which (I'll search) I thought was a section of Istanbul where the Alisveris Merkezi is located.

courtesy of C. Karaca:

As my surname would indicate, I can be considered an authority on things Turkish. I was ASTONISHED to learn that this photo is actually being used as a scene of contemporary Baghdad! You have done an astute job pointing out the obvious reasons why this photo CANNOT have been taken in Iraq, here are more specifics to back you up:

"Edo" is a popular ice cream parlor in Turkey
"2. Noter" means second notary in Turkish
"Alisveris Merkezi" is the name for shopping center in Turkish (appears in the right side of photo)
"Carsi..." means market in Turkish (appears on yellow banner) -note: the "carsi" associated with the futbol team Besiktas is a fanatical group
of, well, fans
There is also a Turkish police car in the middle of the pedestrian zone and the taxi in the foreground is most definitely a signature Renault

All other observations about body language, apparel, etc. are spot on. Good to see the GOP can't pull the wool over everyone's eyes!
