About World War 3 Claims After Iran US Conflict

On the other hand, amidst the US airstrikes and growing tensions in Iraq, claims about impending World War 3 surfaced widely. In fact, WW3 trended worldwide online, especially on Twitter. Consequently, some people expressed serious concerns if all this will cause the outbreak of World War 3. On the other hand, some also made funny comments and memes out of WW3.

World War III is hypothetical third worldwide large-scale military conflict subsequent to World War I and II. The term is in use since many decades and keeps surfacing sometimes during escalating tensions among powerful nations. As of now, these are merely speculations and both US and Iran are also known for their rhetoric. In fact, Iran cannot match the United States in terms of its military assets. Moreover, on 3rd January 2020, Donald Trump tweeted – Iran never won a war, but never lost a negotiation! It’s perhaps a hint to Iran to negotiate and not retaliate. So, it is unlikely all this will cause World War 3.

Hoax or Fact:
