Iran has given a chilling warning to President Donald Trump threatening the US with ‘another Vietnam war’ in Syria in a disturbing shot of bows.

Syrian President Bashar Assad recently slammed the US, the UK, and France for supporting terrorists in Syria, adding they are responsible for all the bloodshed in the country.

Top Iranian official Ali Akbar Velayati said:
“The Americans themselves have created the ISIS and the al-Nusra in Syria and now they have come onto the scene and occupied Eastern Euphrates.
“They should know that Syria and Eastern Euphrates will be another Vietnam for the US.”

The attack was in response to an alleged chemical attack carried out by Assad on rebel-held Douma.
Trump branded the attack the “crimes of a monster” and said it was a “massacre”.
And that came just weeks after he promised:
“I want to bring our troops back home”.
The US President had said they have “almost completed” the task of eliminated ISIS and added, “I want to bring our troops back home”.
