Over 2 Million Deaths in Our Last War. Stop the Gulf War Now! Printing: Commonwealth Printing Design: Glen Ruga
Acquisition Number: 1993-171
Making a visual link to child deaths of the Viet Nam War intensify this poster against the first Persian Gulf War. The terrified child is a foreground detail of the 1972 Pulitzer Prize winning photograph by Nick Ut, showing Vietnamese children running after a napalm attack. Realizing how damaging photographs were to U.S. military interests in Viet Nam, the American government subsequently censored news coverage and photographs during the first war against Iraq.
