I'd like to think declaring war on another country is against Twitter's terms of service..

Violence: You may not make specific threats of violence or wish for the serious physical harm, death, or disease of an individual or group of people. This includes, but is not limited to, threatening or promoting terrorism. You also may not affiliate with organizations that — whether by their own statements or activity both on and off the platform — use or promote violence against civilians to further their causes.

This has got to be the clearest violation of their rules that twitter has ever seen. Will they act on it?

Tbf I feel bad for their CEO/owner... "I just meant this as a small feelings aggregator, not a military telegram!"

It would be hilarious to read in the history books.

"Historians generally place the beginning if the tensions leading up to World War III around the year 2018; and while a precise date for the beginning of the hostilities would be hard to determine, the first outspoken declaration against Russia came from US president Donald J. Trump, who announced the start of military operations with a tweet on the Internet"

It's the same type of embarrassing that it used to be to tell people that you met your wife on an "online dating service". The stigma will go away very soon.

However, he's a moron for announcing shit like this on Twidder.

This kind of stuff used to be announced in Presidential press briefings, or as a message to the nation on television.

During his campaign any time anyone asked what his military strategy would be, he said "I don't want to tell our enemies what I'm going to do. But trust me, I have a strategy. The best strategy."

Aaand now he's just straight up tweeting his strategy.

Yep that was mental when i saw it on history channel, basically you just can go to the white house by yourself and lobby for your own cause until the late 19th century when a president was assasinated by a guy who felt the president declined his requests.

A former head of secret service once said the biggest reason that the president avoids being assassinated isn't the security but the fact that peoole hardly ever try to do it. And those that do often have mental issues and don't plan it very well.

Tweet 1 (Trump)

Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!

Tweet 2 (doesn't sound like Trump)

Our relationship with Russia is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War. There is no reason for this. Russia needs us to help with their economy, something that would be very easy to do, and we need all nations to work together. Stop the arms race?

Tweet 3 (back to Trump, clearly deflecting)

Much of the bad blood with Russia is caused by the Fake & Corrupt Russia Investigation, headed up by the all Democrat loyalists, or people that worked for Obama. Mueller is most conflicted of all (except Rosenstein who signed FISA & Comey letter). No Collusion, so they go crazy!

We have a two party system here that has worked for 240 years by both sides coming together to work difficult solutions out for the betterment of the country. This us vs them shit has to end now.

Same problem I have with the NRA, their videos literally paint fellow American citizens as the enemy. This is bullshit. America was founded on different view points, not one lock step you're with us or you're against us brainwashing.

Coming from a veteran, here's a pro tip. Just say no if they draft you. You are not a slave, and they may try to take legal action against you, but just say you won't go to war. I have nothing against draft dodgers, conscientious objectors, or anybody who refuses to join the military. And neither should any other veteran, who fought for your FREEDOM. If a nation can't fight with a volunteer army, it doesn't deserve to win that fight.

I'm a bit ignorant in these matters. Why are everyone saying this will lead to WW3?

I don't get it either. It will probably result in the US hitting a few Syrian installations, probably a bit of collateral damage as well, as is tradition. Russia may indeed shoot down a couple of missiles. And then it's back to where it was before. I don't see the US and Russia going on a direct war against each other (even if confined to the Syrian borders).

I'm sure his Generals are smashing down his toilet stall door down right now to rip his phone out of his shit-stained hands...

Like, I get the purpose of warning Russian leaders beforehand; but not literally every Syrian soldier with an internet connection. They're probably evacuating airbases right now because they all just got a fucking push notification from BBC news.

Yep.

Syrian bases are currently evacuating and moving to Russian bases.

I'm on mobile so I'll try to find and paste the source as soon as I can.

Edit: from the French la figaro

That is a actually a pretty good article. It does note however, that Syrian troops began transferring their military to Russian bases on Monday in preparation of a retalitory-strike.

Thanks

that's weird considering Trump threatened to pull out of Syria immediately and his Generals had to calm him down,

after that incident Trump had a complete turn around and now wants bombing, weird.

What's interesting is Trump didn't get the purpose of a warning in the past. He complained about announcing invasions/attacks because the enemy evacuates before you get to kill them.
