Here is an excellent rebuttal to that comic. I enjoy reading the Oatmeal; it's a very good comic, but in the end it is still a comic, and due to the limitations of the format cannot tell the whole story when it comes to a complicated history lesson like the Current Wars, about which volumes and volumes have been written and, like any other historical event, continues to be argued today.
