The decade is starting with a bang, guys.
We thought 2019 was rough, but at least it didn’t start with floods, mass fires and a potential US-IRAN war.
On January 3rd 2020, The Trump administration ordered a drone strike in Iran which led to the killing of Iran’s top general, Qasem Soleimani.
Iran swore to avenge this killing, quickly announcing that it was shaking off restrictions on its uranium enrichment under the Obama-era nuclear deal. Iraq’s parliament voted to expel US troops while the whole country took to the streets to mourn the General’s death.
Have you EVER seen such a sea of humanity in your life, @realdonaldtrump?
Do you still want to listen to the clowns advising you on our region?
And do you still imagine you can break the will of this great nation & its people?

This development deepens fears across the world of a potential world war 3 if the Islamic state is successful in its retaliation.
Meanwhile, Nigeria places Police officers at red alert in case the US-Iran tensions escalate. Remember Nigeria has been battling the Islamic Extremist group Boko Haram for over 10 years now.
In other 2020 news, Wildfires have raged across the Australian continent in recent months, killing over half a billion animals and 17 people so far. Australia is said to be facing a “humanitarian crisis” as food, water, and fuel begin to run out while out-of-control bushfires continue to spread.
Among the worst-hit areas has been the region surrounding Sydney, where many roads are now impassable and petrol stations and surf clubs have been turned into evacuation areas.
The country is venting frustration with Prime Minister Scott Morrison over what many view as a nonchalant response to the disastrous blazes and his unwavering dismissal of climate change.
In more positive news, an unusual philanthropist Kaylen Ward, 20, has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to help aid the Australian bushfire relief by offering nude photos in exchange for donations.
The Los Angeles influencer and online sex worker was recently looking at coverage of the fires in Australia and wondered how she could help.
I’m sending nudes to every person who donates atleast $10 to any one of these fundraisers for the wildfires in Australia. Every $10 you donate = one nude picture from me to your DM. You must send me confirmation that you donated.
