Alright, there's been some debate on that and I think it is a good example of why Garrison labels every goddamn thing in his cartoons. He is incapable of making things clear when he tries to be subtle.

Note the literal "Jew nose" on the skull, the skull has also been labeled as "WAR" which, I suppose, implies that the Syrian war is a Jewish plot that Trump and Putin have been dragged into unwillingly. Also there's some other symbol carved into it but I'm not sure what that is.

I originally thought that the cartoon is critique of Trump's actions but clearly the REAL culprits according to Garrison are the Jews. Don't ask why or he'll probably go on an hour rant on how Jewish cabal control the world.

Trump and Putin seem upset which implies that they didn't want the war and they are merely prisoners of the Jew-war-skull.

False flag event, which is also a flag because this is about as clever as Garrison can get also appears to imply that Assad didn't do the chemical attacks or whatever and it's just another ploy. (Possibly by the Jews.)

Syria being represented by a Syria shaped (and labeled) piece is pretty clear.

Needs more labels.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

The sign on the side of the skull is a Sikh religious symbol. What It's doing there, I have no idea.
There is no plague more evil and vile to watch spread than the plague that is the Von Habsburg dynasty.

...OK, now that is confusing.

Did Garrison confuse the Muslims with the Sikh? Is there finally a conspiracy theory NOT based on Jews being the source of all evil, but this time it's the Sikh? Fascinating but odd.

No, it's the symbol from the Iranian flag.

After looking at it further, you are correct - the Sikh symbol is extremely similar but a morning look reveals the differences.

Plus your explanation makes a ton more sense.

It's The Handmaid's Tale vs. The Strawman.
Does anyone take Donald Trump seriously, anymore?

As well as pinot, apparently.

You gotta love the false dichotomy too. "White women have two choices: an alt-right lifestyle or a degenerate one."

You gotta love that their ideal world is literally The Handmaid's Tale. They set the bar really low by way of me taking them seriously.

Also, a Nazi dyson sphere?  Sounds like a plot to an especially weird episode of Star Trek.
