The thing formerly known as a tweet has been removed, without retraction, explanation or apology. Coward.Viral Video Claims to Show U.S. Marines Landing in Israel
Russia’s war in Ukraine prompted warnings that World War III was imminent, and similar alerts are now proliferating in relation to hostilities in Israel and the Gaza Strip. In a recent viral example, Matt Wallace—an account boasting more than 1.3 million followers— posted a tweet purporting to show “thousands of U.S. Marines” landing in Israel. “WW3 HIGH ALERT,” it says. The tweet had more than 14,000 likes and 2.9 million views as of October 27.
Opps, busted. People are SO gullible!Wallace’s tweet, however, shows neither U.S. Marines nor Israel. The referenced video is actually from June 2022, when members of the U.S. Army’s 101st Airborne Division arrived in Mihail Kogalniceanu, Romania. According to an image of the arrival released by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD), units from the 101st were sent to “support the Army’s V Corps’ mission to reinforce NATO’s eastern flank and engage in multinational exercises with partners across Europe to reassure allies and deter further Russian aggression.”
Matt Wallace is a Trumpette and big time fanboy of antisemitic Elon, or he's one of Elon's sock puppets. He also hates Bill Gates, Bud Light, Joe Biden and Barack Obama:
