"We Won!"

Pen and ink on board, 1991

One of Mauldin’s final published cartoons, this piece serves as a fitting culmination of his more than 30 year editorial cartooning career. Mauldin visited Saudi Arabia as U.S. troops prepared for the invasion of Iraq. While he enjoyed his time with the soldiers as they prepared for combat, he felt that years of U.S. involvement in the Middle East had been utterly ignored, and that any action in the region could not be won by force alone.

We Won!
