Translation: 
Know the Enemy - Lessons at Home in English and German
Description: 

This image features half of an American flag next to half of a German flag, both behind half of the face of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and half of the face of American President Barack Obama.  The sticker is a personal satirical advertisement for someone named Lorenzo whose telephone number is written at the bottom of the sticker.  The phrase “know your enemy” speaks less to specific political strife at the time, but rather to the fact that the United States and Germany are two nations close to Italian affairs through global imperialism.  The sticker addresses the need for bilingual skills in an increasingly global market.
