I'm not sure what you're trying to say.
was the flag of Iraq when this episode was written
and aired. It is similar to the Syria Independance Flag. Just the Red and Green and switched. The middle east has had many variations on the three
striped flag with stars in variations of red, white, black and green.
All I'm saying that it is probably more likely that the writers picked a random flag from the middle east. The whole episode is about joining the
fight in the middle east. "Drop Da Bomb" specifically names Saddam Hussein. The writers may have accidentally picked that flag instead of the
current Iraq flag [which are nearly identical] or they may have chosen a flag at random. Another inconsistency is that the US actually sided with the
rebels against Assad when SHTF. So really, if this was forshadowing something it should have been the US bombing vehicles with
flag... which is the same as Iraq's flag but with one less
Are you seeing the trend? All the flags out there are inspired by each other, and a mistake could easily be made in identification. And like I said,
the US was against Assad's "regime", so why would the Simpsons have the navy fighting rebels anyways?
