Social media users have reacted to the killing of Iran’s most powerful military commander, General Qasem Soleimani, by a US airstrike in Iraq.
The 62-year old spearheaded Iranian military operations in the Middle East as head of Iran’s elite Quds Force.
He was killed at Baghdad airport, alongside local Iran-backed militias, early on Friday in a strike ordered by US President Donald Trump.
The killing of the Iranian military leader has led to panic of a third world war on social media.

If you understand international relations, you’d know one thing. Starting a war with Iran is not like starting wars with Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. This is a whole different ball game that will not end well.
I always knew Donald Trump would destroy us all to save his fat ass.

This is an extremely serious situation. There’s a clear danger of further violence and escalation in the Middle East. We need to engage, not isolate Iran. All sides need to de-escalate tensions and prevent further conflict. https://t.co/ro2bJpk7jl

Tweeps.. in May I did a thread about what an Iran War would mean. This is now something I have to do again. If you are not CERTAIN that it is IDIOTIC for USA to consider a war with Iran… please please please read my thread and consider. Hold on, takes a while to set up (next)
