“World War 3” Is Trending After Soleimani Strike, And So Are The Memes

After the U.S. assassination of Qasem Soleimani, who was considered to have been the second most powerful individual in Iran, it wasn’t long before every possible version of the phrase “World War 3” was trending on Twitter. While it’s unlikely that war with Iran would be anything like the kind of conflict that has been labeled a “world war,” people were still feeling pretty freaked out and were coping in the usual way: With WW3 memes.

The assassination has been roundly criticized by people who noticed that Donald Trump, who ordered the attack, tweeted multiple times claiming with absolute confidence that former President Barack Obama would start a war with Iran to boost his poll numbers and/or get re-elected in 2012. Obama never did, but in the election year of 2020, Trump fulfilled that prophecy himself.

Some experts have speculated that the U.S. public is too weary of the constant wars in the Middle East for this to boost support for Trump. This might be supported by the many memes about draft-dodging and the end of the world as we know it.

The bottom line is that you should be concerned, but you shouldn’t despair. If you are despairing, comfort yourself with some memes.

Depressed that 2020 has barely started and you had convinced yourself it was going to be a good one? Memes.
