Propaganda Postcard - Germany

This is an interesting propaganda postcard issued during 1940. These (along with other such postcards) were distributed in Lisbon (Portugal), by the German embassy during WWII.

The text is in Portuguese which reads:

"Nations of all world benefit from all the goods of earth"

Basically, it is sarcastic comment on America and allies where postcard shows D. Roosevelt helping Winston Churchill with cigar while a Chinese, an Indian (shown as sardar [Sikh]), an Arab and an Vietnamese or some south Asian is tied to same log.

The log has label which states:

"American Peace"

The postcard shows what is the meaning of American peace where Americans are using all other countries for their benefit.

The intention seems very clear which is to divide the allies [nations].
