Monroe Didn't Forsee the Frogman
Nikita Khrushchev here is depicted as a Frogman, which was a WWII term for someone who is trained in scuba diving in a military or combat capacity. A “Monroe Doctrine” flag is seen flying above a ship in the background. This refers to the fact that President Kennedy was using the Monroe Doctrine as a justification for action in Cuba at the time of the Cuban Missile Crisis. Russia was very secretive about its operations in Cuba; so indeed Monroe couldn’t have foreseen this sneaky frogman coming.
