Pyramid schemes in Iraq: Stephanie McMillan, Minimum Security

March 11th, 2007

In the comic, Nikko is sipping a drink while he and Bunnista watch Kranti pick carrots. Nikko says, “Some politicians want to continue the Iraq War so the soldiers who've died won't have been killed in vain.” Kranti replies: “So MORE soldiers dying in vain will prevent the previous ones from having died in vain?” Bunnista: “It's a pyramid scheme of slaughter!”
