Dumbshit damn near starts WWIII today and hardly anybody notices [View all]

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/apr/11/trumps-russia-tweets-show-how-misinformation-can-lead-to-global-crisis



Donald Trump’s Wednesday’s morning Twitter storm warning Russia to “get ready” for US missiles fired at Syria was a frighteningly clear illustration of how wars can start by miscalculation.

While the trigger points in the president’s mind are unknowable, it seems likely from past experience that he had seen something on the morning news – most probably a version of remarks by a Russian diplomat in Lebanon that may have been edited or mistranslated to make them sound worse than they were.


If a democrat did this, they could not be elected dog catcher.
