What is it that the cartoon is trying to support though?
I think the dominos in the cartoon are lined up wrong. The first four are part of the US economy not seperate from it. The Market domino should also be between the US Economy and World Economy dominos.
My point being, it is possible the world economy will get along just fine without the US. Who knows it might actually thrive.

I believe this is a subtle play on a tactic used to support the Vietnam fiasco. I.e, if Vietnam falls, all of SE Asia will follow like dominos. Then, there was the other one also currently being used by the GOP: “We’re fighting them over there so we don’t have to fight them here.” Well, Vietnam fell and all of SE Asia did not fall as was claimed; nor did we have to fight them over here! I had hoped that after loosing over 56,000 of our finest, the American people would have learned and would not let this happen again. But, I guess I was wrong; the same old scare tactics are again being used to support the Iraq fiasco!
