TEHRAN US President Donald Trump's claim over Iran's defeat in wars throughout history is being mocked as social media users remind him that the Islamic Republic has never started a war, but won almost all the wars, even at the period in history when there was no country named America!.
On Monday, Trump in yet another controversial tweet claimed that despite Iran never winning a war, the Islamic Republic never lost a negotiation.
It comes after the American president had admitted that "it is getting harder for me to make a deal with Iran", as he seemed to refer to the new agreement to replace the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Posting photos of the nationaly-mourned hero, Mohsen Hojaji, who was martyred by the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (known as ISIL/ISIS or Daesh) in Syria in 2017, alongside a crying American soldier, an activists stated that the pictures show all about Iran and the United States.
Trump's tweet has since sparked hundreds of comments and tweets in protest and in despise for the US president, mocking Donald Trump's fictitious narrative.
Alluding to the revelations made by recently-resigned Britain's Ambassador to the US Kim Darroch - who had sent a diplomatic cable to Downing Street saying Trump had abandoned the Iran's Nuclear Deal for "personality reasons" because it had been agreed by his predecessor Barack Obama - another activist condemned the American leader's desicion to quite the 2015 landmark agreement, and said Trump's worthless actions risk the lives of millions.
Tensions mounted between Tehran and Washington last May, when Trump pulled the United States out of the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, and re-imposed harsh sanctions against the Islamic Republic in defiance of global criticism. The American leader and his hawkish advisers National Security Advisor John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have since been stepping up pressure against Iranians.
The tensions saw a sharp rise on the first anniversary of Washington's exit from the deal as the US moved to ratchet up pressure on Iran by tightening its oil sanctions and sending military reinforcements, including an aircraft carrier strike group, a squadron of B-52 bombers, and a battery of Patriot missiles, to the Persian Gulf region. The Pentagon has also announced it was sending 1,000 additional US forces and more military resources to the Middle East.
Tensions between Washington and Tehran hit a new high in June after the US sent a number of military aircarft to the Iranian skies under a tense climate of escalating threats, forcing the IRGC Aerospace Force to shoot down one of the intruding American aircraft.
Iran has stressed that it will not be the initiator of any war, but reserves the right to self defense and will give a crushing response to any act of aggression by the United States.
