The United States should take great comfort that an organization we spend roughly $36 billion a year on is comparing wars that cost billions of dollars and lives to movies.
No wonder President Trump has talked for years about withdrawing from NATO. $36 billion could be spent rebuilding our national supply chain and taking care of our citizens.
The official NATO Twitter account posted an eerie message on Wednesday comparing the Ukraine conflict to famous fantasy films like Harry Potter, Star Wars, Braveheart and more. NATO claimed the words came from a Ukrainian army soldier.
A related tweet read: We are Harry Potter and William Wallace, the Na’vi and Han Solo. We’re escaping Shawshank and blowing up the Death Star. We are fighting the Harkonnens and challenging Thanos.
🗣️ Ukraine is hosting one of the greatest epics of this century
❝We are Harry Potter and William Wallace, Na’vi and Han Solo. We’re escaping Shawshank and blowing up the Death Star. We are fighting the Harkonnens and challenging Thanos.❞

The reactions were absolutely brutal and hilarious:
Russia should win because of this tweet.

They should continue… “At Charlie and the Chocolate Factory we’re the fat kids, trying to cram as much candy into our mouths as possible. We’re the kids at Super Bad McLovin trying to buy alcohol with a fake ID. “

This tweet is reason enough to cancel NATO.

“We’re fighting the Harkonnens”

Jesus Christ was a real person who wrote it. Even an adult.

We are brave little toasters.
We are Chip and Dale, Rescue Rangers.
We are M&M spokespeople (but not Red for obvious reasons).
