Additionally to a wide range of tensions in military, diplomatic and economic spheres, the US and Iran appear to be involved in a meme war on the highest level.

Commander of the Quds Force, General Qassem Soleimani, has responded to US President Donald Trump’s announcement of a wide-scale anti-Irainan sanctions with a Game of Thrones-inspired meme of his own.

“Come! We are waiting,” Major-General Soleimani, head of the unit of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards responsible for their extraterritorial operations wrote on Instagram on November 2. “I am your enemy. Quds Force is your enemy,” added Soleimani. “You start this war, but we will finish it.”

ترامپ قمارباز؛ من حریف تو هستم #Sanctions | #iran | #?? ‌‌ ‌‌ شما برای ما خط و نشان می‌کشید؟ ایران را نمی‌خواهد، نیروهای مسلح ایران را نمی‌خواهد؛ من حریف شما هستم، نیروی قدس حریف شماست. بدانید هیچ شبی نیست که ما بخوابیم و به شما فکر نکنیم. به شما می‌گویم آقای ترامپ قمارباز! بدان در آنجایی که فکر نمی‌کنی، ما در نزدیک شما هستیم. در هر کجا که تصور نمیکنید ما در کنار شما هستیم. ما ملت شهادت هستیم، ما ملت امام حسین(علیه‌السلام) هستیم. بپرس ما حوادث سختی را پشت سر گذاشتیم. بیا! ما منتظریم؛ ما مرد این میدان برای شما هستیم. شما می‌دانید این جنگ یعنی نابودی همه امکانات شما، این جنگ را شما شروع می‌کنید اما پایانش را ما ترسیم می‌کنیم. بنابراین نباید به ملت ایران اهانت بکنید، نباید به رئیس جمهور ما اهانت بکنید، باید بدانید که چه می‌گویید. از پیشینیان خودتان بپرسید. از تجربه‌ی آنها بهره ببرید. یقینا در داخل آمریکا کسانی هستند و موسسات مطالعاتی فراوانی هستند که اینها را مطالعه می‌کنند، به او گوشزد می‌کنند و به او یادآوری می‌کنند. ۹۷/۵/۴

International diplomacy reduced to B theatre. An era of darkness and madness is upon us.


True. However, “You start this war, but we will finish it.” reminds me of Babylon 5, where it is a powerful quote, but in a different context. I’d wish though, there was more sober diplomacy. It’s still not a hot war, thankfully. I don’t expect better from the US, but Iran could do better than that.

Since too many years. I were told the Elite dropped Judaism and now try Hubbards Dianetics.

Meaning the whole world is being “desensitized” by endless war, refugees, violence, frauds and meaningless Kabuki theater, endning up as ignorants living only for momental joy.

Its the only language the Talmudic Rabbinical Jews who essentially run the U.S. understand. The language of annihilation.

War and darkness has descended on the people of the Middle East since the creation of the Zionist entity in 1948. Since then, perhaps millions have died, or suffered immensely. Time is fast approaching to put a stop to this genocide.

Long Live Iran.

And You run nothing. If Russia and China took over, it would be same thing. You run nothing.

Thast Your main problem, You are not raised to run things.

Brother Thomas

“Long live Iran”, indeed. However I do not wish “death” to anyone – the dark counterpart to that slogan.


Yeah…. Bring it on U.S….you are nothing but a Loudmouthed Chickenshit Coward… I Bet you are Going to Love a Little bit of Asymmetrical Warfare….Send in your Psychopathic Cannonfodder and an equal number of Bodybags…


If that happens then the federal government will be done. When we have to face serious casualties and the body bags start to flow no amount of propaganda will stop the downfall of my government. We will see the real state of our economy. There will be no place for the evil politicians and the rich to hide. Unless they leave the country. Then I ask that you send back what we could not contain so that they may be dealt with.


Well basically Humanity as a whole should make sure these Criminals have no Hiding place upon this Earth any Longer….even if they hide in Caves… Smoke’m out….they should face a court for their Crimes… stripped of their Sacrosanct Immunity….That these Criminals gave themselves…


I agree with you completely but I don’t know where you’re from. I don’t like the idea of the world cleaning up any more of our trash. You’ve dealt with enough from US. Humanity should do what they feel is right.


Holland…we always took part in every American expedition & adventure… my Government also an accomplish

When so many muslims come here not being exactly wanted, we could send those of ours, we dont wish.

It dould be a good idea to arm the too :)


Their Deluxe Underground Bunkers should be perfect.


Their Deluxe Underground Bunkers easily Become Deluxe Tombes if you pour enough Concrete on them

Hisham Saber

Simple. Deal with your Jews, who have subverted the U.S. government and society. Expel or exile them. They are nothing but trouble. Since the days of Babylon. Nothing has changed.

Do you know why the Byzantine Empire was the longest lasting Empire in history? Because they enacted, and strictly enforced 3 laws.

1- No Jews in Government

2- No Jews in Finance

3- No Jews in Education

Jens Holm

Thats historicly totally incorrect for all 3.

In the first century after taking Konstantinople the Ottomans welcommed jews and asked for them.

You also ignore that jews by good reasons educate themselves well by their own and all jobs are not in Governess as wel as being sodiers.

Again we see, You not even know Your own history just nationalism of the worst kind. And facts are easy to find:

It’s almost too late for the US. The termites have eaten through the woodwork and all that’s now left is a rotten frame. The only Americans that are ready for the huge structural collapse are the alternative lifestylers who have learned how to live partially off-grid and non-reliant on the decrepit system . . .and the militias . .


Meme wars have been going on in the US since 2015.

Iran has responded well. Good for them.


Reality is going to be a MF’r for my country and I’m not looking forward to it. As they say “what goes around comes around.”


Buckle up. The next couple of months are going to be interesting.

Jens Holm

Where ?


The US.

Empire's Frontiers

George R. R. Martin must be tickled, really.


Is this legit General Soleimani’s twitter? Because I doubt it. And if it hypothetically is, I still doubt he did it.
