The REAL problem in Iraq

Have you ever noticed how, in all the pictures of violence in Iraq, the belligerent young kids— you know, the ones throwing rocks and ululating over burning car wreckage— are all wearing collared polo shirts?

Uh. Maybe this is the problem. When i was a kid, I used to hate wearing collared polo shirts, especially if they had the little alligator on the front. My mom said, "Oh, you'll looks so nice for the guests," but really, it just pissed me off. Enough to set fire to a Humvee? I don't know...
