US Personality Identification Playing Cards
This deck of playing cards, manufactured by the US Flag King Leisure Products Company, dates from the Second Bush-Iraq War in 2003. These cards were developed by the US military in order to facilitate the capture of the Baath Party regime bureaucrats and military leaders. This was critical since being Arabs and all having moustaches they were effectively identical to the US occupation and therefore difficult to capture. This is what is called satirical flourish.
