August, 1991

In August 1991, the United States had reason to believe Saddam Hussein was pursuing his ambition to secure nuclear weapons just months after his Iraqi army was ousted from Kuwait as a result of Operation Desert Storm. Concurrently, actress Demi Moore created controversy by posing both nude and pregnant on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine. This cartoon satirically combines that imagery with Saddam’s efforts to raise a nuclear family in the 1990s.
