UPDATE: An earlier version of this post said that it was the first time in Iran’s history that the red flag has been raised. According to newly obtained information, this is not the case, and the post has been updated accordingly. ~Mockarena
You guys, this is just creepy. Creeeeeepy and eerie.
Express news has reported that Iran has raised a red flag over the Holy Dome Jamkaran Mosque. The red flag is a warning of war.
People who are motivated by religious fanaticism are particularly dangerous and scary.
I am not scared in the sense that the USA has the most powerful military in the world.
However, any war has bloodshed and extreme human suffering.
I am hoping that cooler heads prevail amidst all the posturing and threats in response to the U.S. taking out Iran General Qasem Soleimani.
