Drawing: A.I.D.

The US Agency for International Development, set up to do what its name said, assist other countries, was often a cover for covert operations. Under the guise of their mission, military aid was often furnished, and not always for good causes. Death squads were funded, as I am depicting here, in the situation that was at its height in the 1980s under Reagan, where leftist revolutions seeking land reform and redistribution of wealth were put down violently, including involving the abducting and murdering of mere supporters of such revolutions, in the name of anti-communism. I did this drawing in 1990, in ink on illustration board.

Thanks for coming. What do you think?
