Barack Obama was the first United States President to use Twitter, or any social media site, to connect with the world – particularly the citizens and residents of the great United States of America. Mr. Obama was the first POTUS in office when social media actually became popular all around the 190-odd countries throughout planet Earth, too.
Current POTUS Donald J. Trump uses Twitter, too, though his marks have traditionally been highly inflammatory – whether you agree with his actions, behaviors, and views or not, his tweets certainly are inflammatory – a line of thought that held true at 5:57 a.m. Eastern Savings Time, April 11, 2018.
“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!”
Russian government officials soon after shared – the following is paraphrased – that they don’t engage in diplomatic – or not-so-diplomatic – talks over Twitter.
Donald Trump’s tweet came after official reports that certifiably found evidence of deadly chemical gas attacks by Syrian leader al-Assad’s governmental camp less than a week ago. Such chemical weapons are internationally considered inappropriate for war, which desperately calls for at least one other nation – in this case, it’s slated to be the United States of America, according to Trump, as well as considering the history of the U.S. to get involved in wars around the world throughout the past century or so – to enter the fray, hopefully protecting the citizens of Syria against further biological weapon attacks.
Such news came from official United States intelligence officers, claiming that they were “confident” in their assertions that at least one deadly nerve agent was used in such attacks last Saturday.
Sarin is a deadly nerve agent that has been used by al-Assad – the head of Syria’s government – in the past, combined with chlorine, a combination that can effectively, unfortunately, render virtually all those people nearby dead on contact with the mixture.
Trump’s tweets involving Russia came as the United States of America, among other nations not on Russia’s side – which is pretty much all nations across planet Earth – believed that Russia was deeply involved in such attacks, supporting the Syrian regime.
