Kennedy by an unknown Cuban artist

Kennedy was not enormously popular in Cuba, as you may expect. Along with the Cuban Missile thing, JFK also launched the botched "Bay of Pigs" invasion of the country in an effort to depose Communist President Fidel Castro.
This cartoon, published in one of Cuba's state-run papers shows the president in a collar that symbolizes the fact that he is a slave to capitalism and fascism. The text at the bottom reads "a different dog, but the same collar," indicating the supposedly liberal Kennedy is really no different than any of the presidents who came before him.
