What's an alternative/replacement for a Thanksgiving cranberry sauce if you find yourself in a place where there are no cranberries available? (In Iraq, for example)

You could make a chutney with cherries and/or plums - some mustard seeds, onions, pomegranate molasses to add tanginess.

Oooh. Tough one. Perhaps a very tart apple/cherry based sauce? Crabapples would be ideal, but I presume if one cannot get cranberries, one cannot get crabapples. Or -- and obviously the flavor profile would be very different -- how about a Jezebel-style sauce, based on a red preserve (strawberry, raspberry, cherry) of some sort with lots of horseradish?

Quince jelly or quince jam.

Make a nice fruit salad with whatever you can get. A tangy/sweet fruit salad always tastes great with what is usually a brown mushy meal.
