    Uh... Fail.

    This is just one of several accepted spellings of "Iraq".

    Somehow, it doesn`t feel right to ridicule a family that is celebrating the return of their son/daughter/husband/wife/... from Iraq.

    Besides, as heavypred also noted, most languages spell Iraq with a k, so there!

    Uh, when have you seen Iraq spelt Irak in the English Language? Let`s face it this photo likely represents ignorance rather than someone deciding to use an alternative spelling to show how smart they are.

    Accepted by who? I`ve never seen it spelled any other way than "Iraq" in English.

    If they were trying to spell it the way Iraqis would, it would be in Arabic. If they were trying to spell it the way the French or Germans would (which is indeed "Irak") then that`s equally weird, unless you often start referring to countries in a different language.

    "How was your holiday?"
    "Oh great thanks, Allemagne is lovely this time of year!"
    "... what?"


    It`s far more likely that they simply don`t know how to spell Iraq.

    @McGovern1981 - HA! That doesn`t make sense since the rest of the sign is English!! More likely that they are ignorant idiots that don`t check their spelling before they post up a sign.

    Irak is also correct, depends on what country you are.
    That`s like saying Deutschland is incorrect, because the correct term is Germany.

    @Edgarska19,
    Judging by the American flags and English used on the other signs the photo is from the United States. We spell it "Iraq" here. What planet are you from? Also, regarding your Deutschland analogy, this is more like calling it Germank.

    You don`t have to be educated to sign up to die for your country. Indeed, it`s an impediment.

    Maybe it is an inside joke, and the soldier always corrected a family member that called it
    "I-Rock" so they put up a sign to make fun of it.

    During Irak 1.0, I remember seeing a billboard for a local radio station that had a picture of a tank rolling over Saddam`s head and it said "Iraq and Roll"

    Or it could be ignorance....
