Depends. Was he wearing beer goggles at the time of said poking?

On this day in 2001 some amateur pilots lost control of some planes they were flying and accidentally crashed into some buildings.

Some have called this an act of terrorism, but as we have come to understand things now that we are woke, it was just an accident, not some deliberate act.

People who still call this a deliberate act of terror are now publicly shamed, humiliated and called xenophobic.

From History.com

On Sunday, September 2, (1945) more than 250 Allied warships lay at anchor in Tokyo Bay. The flags of the United States, Britain, the Soviet Union, and China fluttered above the deck of the Missouri. Just after 9 a.m. Tokyo time, Japanese Foreign Minister Mamoru Shigemitsu signed on behalf of the Japanese government. General Yoshijiro Umezu then signed for the Japanese armed forces, and his aides wept as he made his signature.
