Less than three days into the new year, and #WWIII is already trending.

It looks like not enough people wished for world peace in the new year. It’s been confirmed that one of Iran’s most powerful men, Qasem Soleimani,was killed in a drone strike on January 3rd and it has started a global crisis.

Not long after the attack, the Pentagon issued a statement and verified that the US was responsible for the attack which happened near Baghdad Airport. The statement also claimed that the attack was a defensive measure to protect US personnel abroad.

Later in the day, the Pentagon issued another statement to let the public know that “General Soleimani was actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region.” The statement also had mentions about how Soleimani was responsible for the recent attacks on coalition bases in Iraq.

The whole situation started trending around the world and on social media under hashtags such as #TrumpsWar and #WorldWarIII. While hundreds rushed to the US Embassy in Baghdad to protest, others on the internet were genuinely curious about why this attack was not carried out before if it was a well-known issue for a long time.

To add an extra layer of genuine Trump flavor to this custard of political cataclysm, back in 2011, Trump made a video criticizing then-President, Barrack Obama. In said video, Trump claims Obama will start a war with Iran some time before the [2012] election in order to get re-elected. And of course, there was also a tweet.

It’s odd then, isn’t it, since Trump is also in an election year. And now, he’s potentially started a war with Iran. Right after he’s been impeached. Sounds fishy. Dare we say, Illuminati confirmed…

Back to reality.

Some people are genuinely voicing their opinions in a more formal manner, while others are expressing theirs the only way they know how, memes. As Chandler Bing would say, “I use comedy as a self-defensive mechanism.”

It is hard to believe that we are only 3 days into 2020 and the first hot topic of the year is World War 3. This either means that it will be a year filled memes or this will be the last meme we will ever remember! How did we get from raiding Area 51 to potentially being sent to war. This is not funny government, this is not how you get even with us.

Whichever it may be, the following days will surely be a roller coaster ride for those who are eligible for draft. And no, we don’t mean the NBA Draft.
