Note that date: George Bush the Elder was still Vice President.

    Not quite the same, thank every good god, past, present and future. Take another look at the flags. 🙂

  2. James Joyner says:

    Yeah, I noticed that. But the red Soviet flag on the red background was so subtle as to be almost non-existent.
