It was the flag our dumbass President tried to stuff down the Iraqis throats back in 2004. The Iraqi's did not like it.
They liked the flag they had for 40 years prior to Saddam. This new flag, dreamed up in Washington by someone with about as much knowledge of Iraq as Ryan at Jokers to the Right
, and unfurled even before a parliament had been formed or a constitution ratified, consists of a pale blue crescent on a white field and has three stripes at the bottom -- blue, yellow, and blue. It looked a lot like the flag of Israel to the recently "liberated" Iraqis. The new flag was a dumb idea. Like the war itself, it was not a great concept to begin with and was not given a heck of a lot of serious thought. Michael Castle STILL supports the dumb idea embodied by this flag and the dumbasses who came up with it.
