Today’s meet 75 years ago of the first attack with a nuclear bomb history, at the end of the Second World War on the japanese city of Hiroshima, which it is estimated, killed more than 150,000 people, and that three days later would be repeated in Nagasaki. To commemorate this date, the President of the Government of Spain, Pedro Sanchez, has been published this morning a tweet in the condemning the attack and makes a bet for the coexistence and peace, so that it does not happen again anything like it. The funny thing about all and that’s why we bring you to our page is the image used, that you can see below:

As it could not be of another way this error has created quite a stir and many jokes on Twitter, what has caused Fallout 4 is a trend in Spain in the course of the afternoon.
Great picture of the Fallout 4, Peter. Here you have another catastrophic event: when Daenerey of the Storm swept Landing of the King on the back of Drogon, and that also shows us that if you have swords and slingshot is best not to get farruco with something that throws fire through the mouth. pic.twitter.com/hBd3jkEnYc Froilán I of Spain 🇪🇸 (@FroilLannister) August 6, 2020
The war, war never changes
This is not the first time nor will it be the last in the a medium of communication or a personality used by mistake an image of a video game mistaking it with a real event. Pulling a newspaper library, we have found a political pakistani confused GTA 5 to reality, or the iranian television to believe that images from Medal of Honor belonged to a real combat.
