A straight-forward and heavily propaganda influenced depiction of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. The World Trade Center is depicted with flames erupting from the points of impact with two blue planes approaching the towers. A popular image in propaganda, an American flag is displayed next to the flag of Afghanistan with a dove with an olive branch flying between them. An outline of the country of Afghanistan sits behind the towers. Below the scene sits an aircraft carrier deploying jets and a missile (labeled 'MSILE'). The grim nature of the main imagery is contrasted with the green and orange flowers in the red main border.
