The War of Maps by the unruly school boys and school girls of NATO

These crazies are the ones who are going to bring our world to an end.  Forget about global warming, the environment, comets hitting us, earthquake disasters, plagues and everything else. It's NATO's unruly children which will bring about the end of the world with the upcoming world war they are cooking up to poison us all.

Not that I didn't find it funny, I did.  But, their actions on Twitter proves to me that their actions in important matters to do with life on Earth will be something akin to a competition and tit-for-tat and that means these people have disastrously dangerous mindsets.

Russia Twitter-Fights Canada  in Ukraine Map Dispute

When all other avenues seem to be exhausted, maybe Twitter is the place for international diplomacy — and conflict — to play out. Canada and Russia are taking the border dispute over Ukraine to the 140-character platform.

On Wednesday, as Kiev was accusing Russia of sending troops across Ukraine’s border, the Canadian Joint Delegation to NATO’s Twitter account posted a map showing Russia and labeling Ukraine as “not Russia.”

The tweet was accompanied with the text, “Geography can be tough. Here’s a guide for Russian soldiers who keep getting lost & ‘accidentally’ entering #Ukraine.”

The map quickly spread on social media — with even the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Powers reposting it. 

Not to be outdone, Russia’s NATO account followed up Thursday, saying they were also trying to help educate Canada about “contemporary geography.”

Russia’s map marks the disputed Crimean peninsula as part of Russia. It also highlights the disputed areas of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, which were split off from Georgia in 2008.
