The text on this Afghan war rug is unusual, it seems to say something about making peace in union with the USA army. The rocket above the F-16 is nicely drawn.
There is some abrash in the red color inside the map of Afghanistan. The top is a brighter red than the lower rust color. Also, there is minor bleeding around the bottom border.
