So the good people of Hawaii for 38 minutes knew what it felt like to live in Palestine, Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen & other places US + allies bomb.
Except for of course that the people we bomb in those countries don’t generally get a text alert that we are about to blow them up.
How this message got sent, what happened when the White House was informed, (was the White House informed or were they too frightened to tell Trump?) and could these systems be hacked to exploit and frighten large populations are all questions to be answered, but our Western Privilege desperately needs to be challenged here. Images of terrified people running in Hawaii should be a reminder of all those who never get warnings when American bombs rain down.
