That's funny but just to be a kill joy I'll pick it apart... it's based mostly on media hype (which I fell for too). The red flag's a symbol of martyrdom for mourners to rally around & it's flown all the time. Martyrdom in Shia Islam is a big deal for historic reasons.

 

There's pressure on Iran to strike back, primarily for reasons of national security but also for national dignity - General Solomeini had been deliberately built up as a public figure to gain regional support in their fight against ISIS since 2014. He became a national hero as a result.

 

The Iranian govt knows how to manipulate the people with religion & have even managed to fool the West with this red flag stuff. This makes the meme even funnier if you think about it.

Iran would not be able to beat USA in any shape or form with direct combat, their missiles are rather shite and its their only power in their military.

Irans only option is to gather allies be it Russia or China or anyone else who could put absolute pressure on the USA.
