    Default Iraq's New Flag.....

    So... some of you have probably heard Iraq has been "given" a new flag. As it turns out the Iraqi people don't like it, think it looks a bit like the Israeli flag, and simply don't want a new flag right about now.

    So... my question for you is thus:

    What do you think a flag designed by Iraqis for the USA would look like?

    If Saddam changed the flag then they should change it back, but otherwise that's just asking for trouble.

    Saddam added the words "Allahu Akbar" (Allah is Great) to the flag in 1991 during the Gulf War -- that's the only change he made.

    The older flag was adopted in July 1963, after the Qassim regime was overthrown. The green stars were originally placed there for the proposed Union with Egypt and Syria (United Arab Republic) who both had a flag with two stars in the middle at the time. They would have changed to three if the Union had not fallen apart.

    Iraqis disliking something the US crams down their throats? There's a shocker.

    Lol omg this is priceless.

    Seriously though, I can't imagine why the Iraqi people should just accept it like that. Whatever happened to "for the people"?
