A new bumpersticker for your SUV

Americans love their ribbons and their bumperstickers. But it's been a while since we've had a new fad. How long have we been putting U.S. flags and "Support Our Troops" on our SUVs now? It's time for a new one.

If we really want democracy to flower around the globe, we have to not only support the troops who deliver it, but also the people who are fumbling with it for the first time. We have to Support the Iraqis! Bush said so:

The commitment to a free Iraq now goes forward. Terrorists and insurgents will continue to wage their war against democracy, and we will support the Iraqi people in their fight against them. There's more distance to travel on the road to democracy. Yet Iraqis are proving they're equal to the challenge.

So I propose a joint U.S./Iraqi flag bumpersticker.

We don't need the stripes anymore. We have 50 states. The 13 colonies are so like yesterday. I feel the American people will be more than happy to have the joint U.S./Iraqi flag bumpersticker (it has to be a bumpersticker--it won't work on a ribbon) flying proudly from their SUVs.
