Tweets of War

Posted on November 15, 2012 1:00 pm

Some people are still down on Twitter, but this tweet from the IDF is pretty awesome:

And then the militant wing of Hamas responded with this:

So Israel and Hamas are in a Twitter war (along with the actual war). Anyway, I hope Israel totally annihilates them on both fronts.

But man, isn’t this something war previously missed — to live insult your enemy as you blow them up. Like think of Patton tweeting trash to Rommel as he led an attack. That would have made WWII far less boring. Also, color photography would have helped.

Well, that’s the magic of the internet: We can instantly connect with anyone now, even the enemy we are blowing up.

    The ability to simultaneously kill terrorists and publicly mock them is pretty much the awesomest thing since bacon.

    Somehow, Patton gloating, “Magnificent bastard, I read your Facebook wall!” doesn’t have the same effect.

    Sorry, but I just don’t see the “blessed hands” having the same reach as an IDF sniper armed with a match-grade Remington Model 700.

    Alqassam Brigades
    @AlqassamBrigade @IDFSpokesperson Our blessed hands will reach your leaders and soldiers wherever they are (You Opened Hell Gates on Yourselves)

    1) Your “blessed hands” are gonna find it difficult reaching then when your targeting intel is “wherever they are”.

    2) “(You Opened Hell Gates on Yourselves)” and threw in a buch of Hamas scumbags.

    3) I got $5 says this was posted from underground.

    Settling battles with Dance Wars would also make war history more interesting.
    1.2.3.4. I declare a Dance War!

    Just saw Carolyn’s comment…. Looks like we both thought of almost the same thing after reading this.

  10. silaS marreD says:

    OK, Twitter is less stupid than it used to be but using the word “Tweet” still sounds gay!

  11. Son of Bob says:

    Well, war has been called a lot of things: evil, awful, nasty, frightening, dangerous, etc. …but now, thanks to Twitter, it is also gay.

  12. Doug says:

    Just more Twit for Tat.

    I don’t know why they didn’t use it. The movie Wizard of Oz was filmed in color in 1939. A little-known fact is that the entire movie was filmed in color. The scenes set in Kansas were filmed on location in Kansas, which actually exists in black and white (as did Iowa until 1993).

    Blessed. Is that towel-head for “bloodstained” or “sh!tstained?”

    Dear Israel:

    THIS time do what Yahweh told you to do in the first place. Eliminate them all; men, women, children, and even their livestock. Wipe them and their lines from the face of the earth, and you do not have to worry about them ever again. Their cousins to your east and north still will not love you, but they’ll by Yahweh FEAR you, and maybe leave you alone. If not, then you go through the process again and again, until they learn not to screw with you.

    Sincelerly,
    The Ogrrre
