Anti-American Art: Forget Darfur, Remember Vietnam
Set of stamps issued by Cuba in 1966 to note "US Genocide in Vietnam." The depiction of bombs falling, gas warfare, and poisoned water buffalos are brilliant miniature examples of mid-1960s Cuban graphic art. The flag of the National Liberation Front of South Vietnam (the Vietcong) makes up the background to each horrifying vignette.
