"La historia de gran garrote"
A poster with Uncle Sam holding a big stick reads: "La historia de gran garrote". The English translation is "The history of the big stick." In addition, countries and dates are listed, including: Nicaragua 1933, Cuba 1961, Vietnam 1975, Angola 1976, and finally, Centro América 1983... The ellipsis signifies that this struggle is not over and is to be continued. All of the countries and dates represent numerous struggles where the United States was involved, and the poster negatively depicts this influence. Uncle Sam, representing the U.S., appears to be attacking and remaining victorious over the other nations, until the end where his stick, U.S. influence, has shrunk in size.
