The United States should take great comfort that an organization we spend roughly $36 billion per year on is comparing wars costing billions of dollars and lives to movies.
No wonder President Trump for years has talked about withdrawing from NATO. That $36 billion could be spent on rebuilding our national supply chain and taking care of our citizens.
The official NATO twitter account posted a bizarre message that went viral Wednesday comparing the Ukraine conflict to famous fantasy films such as Harry Potter, Star Wars, Braveheart, and more. NATO claims the words are from a soldier in the Ukrainian army.
The relevant tweet reads: We are Harry Potter and William Wallace, the Na’vi and Han Solo. We’re escaping from Shawshank and blowing up the Death Star. We are fighting with the Harkonnens and challenging Thanos.
The responses were absolutely brutal and hilarious:
Russia should win for this tweet alone.

They should keep this rolling… “We are the fat kid in Charlie & The Chocolate Factory trying to shove as many sweets in our mouth as possible. We are the kids in Super Bad trying to buy booze with the McLovin fake id…. “

This tweet is reason enough to abolish NATO.

“We are fighting with the Harkonnens”
Pretty much sums it up perfectly. pic.twitter.com/f50ya8Jx4p

We are the Brave Little Toaster.
We are Chip and Dale, Rescue Rangers.
We are the M&M spokescandies (but not the red one for obvious reasons)
