Let Slip the Tweets of War

"My fellow Americans…" mutters a Deputy State Department spokesperson before clicking post on a series of five tweets announcing new military action in Iraq. I wonder, when are you supposed to turn to your child and give the speech, in this new scenario? Do you give your stoic, "sometimes the country has to make hard decisions, and people get hurt," talk as you fav or retweet? Do you shake you head and say, "war is never the answer, it only begets more war, never forget this," as you close the browser tab?

"I wonder, when are you supposed to turn to your child and give the speech, in this new scenario?"

That implies there's ever a time when we're not regularly flying airborne explosives at people somewhere in the world.

In fairness, Predator drones have a wicked Instagram feed.

So what is it that makes them "terrorists"? Can we pin point that? Sure they are murderous fucks. But did we call Viet Cong terrorists? Nope. How about The Zetas? Nah. All those evil Balkan warlords tried in Hague? Ne. But these guys… oh, yeah. See, it's because they are Muslim Arabs. No brainer: they are definitely terrorists.

@Niko Bellic : Fuck the War on Terror, but I would 100% support the War on Murderous Fucks.
