The Two Tweeting Twits

The two tweeting twits are country neighbours. Tweeter Number One fired 59 cruise missiles in an illegal act of war on Syria, a country that never invaded his. He also enjoyed eating chocolate cake as his missiles were fired.  His military also dropped “The Mother of All Bombs” (MOAB) on Afghanistan. One might ask, is he “nuttier than a fruitcake?” Oh well, perhaps it takes all kinds of nuts to run a country, and it helps if there is “entertainment.”

 “When the so-called Mother of All Bombs was first tested, in 2003, the largest conventional weapon in the United States arsenal set off a mushroom cloud visible for twenty miles. The potential damage from the twenty-two-thousand-pound bomb was so vast that the Pentagon ordered a legal review to insure that the device wouldn’t be deemed an indiscriminate killer under the Law of Armed Conflict, the body of law that regulates behavior during wartime. The MOAB was compared to a small nuclear weapon. It’s so large that no U.S. warplane is big enough to drop it: it has to be offloaded from the rear of a cargo plane, with the help of a parachute.” Robin Wright, April 14, 2017.

What’s next for the Chocolate Cake “Warrior”? A Nuclear Bomb to make “America Great Again"?

Tweeter Number Two, just like his tweeting, chocolate cake-eating neighbour, likes to tweet too. He sent out a tweet that went around the world, welcoming everybody to his (soon-to-be) pot-approving land. Now huge numbers of illegal arrivals are crossing his country’s border and seeking asylum. But hey, he is a “caring” kind of tweeter. Before he came to power, he voted with the other politicians to bomb a country in an illegal war. That country never invaded his. Now he is “helping” the refugees he helped create. Is this not the equivalent of an arsonist starting a fire, then helping to put the fire out, and aiding and commiserating with those he made homeless by his actions? Is that bizarre or what?  Or is it just “normal behaviour” for a pot-approving tweeter?

Still, some people are wondering if this tweeter is turning their country into a wacky world of weed smokers. He is going to legalize pot so that the whole country can be a pot smokers “paradise.” Welcome to Tru-dope-ia.

Meanwhile Tweeter Number One is going to make his country “great again.” Before he became leader of his country, he promised to “drain the swamp.” Now he has appointed a whole slew of swamp dwellers into his government, and is feeding and consorting with them.  Did he lie while campaigning, or is he a stranger to the truth?

“Dishonesty from politicians is nothing new for Americans. The real question is whether we are lying to ourselves when we call this country the land of the free.” Jonathan Turley, The Washington Post, January 13, 2012.

Truth has always been a casualty when politicians get to rule, or to use that old saying, “How do you know when politicians are lying”? Answer: “Their lips are moving.”

The “wisdom,” or should we call it B.S., that emanates from the lips of the Two Tweeters should be a concern to all thinking people. Tweeter Number One is the “leader” of the “free world” and Tweeter Number Two has been described as , “ Canada’s Prime Sycophant... by endorsing Trump’s missile folly” in an article headline by Michael Harris, iPolitics, April 9, 2017.

In closing, one has to ask this: Will the Two Tweeters and their tweeter toadies on the “world stage” give us “The Final War Message”?
“We set the world on fire, created a massive funeral pyre. In the bunkers we survive: and millions are dead, but we are alive. Democracy and freedom has been saved, but we destroyed the human race.”
