Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, tweeted a graphical representation of how he feels strongly against U.S. President Barack Obama. In a post dated July 25, a silhouette of America’s commander-in-chief is seen with a gun aimed in his head.


The tweet, which was first spotted by USA Today, came with a cryptic caption that could send chills to the bone with its cliffhanger.

“US president has said he could knock out Iran’s military. We welcome no war, nor do we initiate any war, but..,” the caption reads.

According to the report from USA Today, the Twitter account is yet to be verified. A quick check by Morning News USA saw the account has more than 140 thousand followers and was set up on March 2009. It also has a Spanish version and is also reeking of anti-U.S. and anti-Obama sentiments. The series of tweets, specifically aimed against Mr Obama, were posted in the days after the landmark Iran nuclear deal was inked.

In another tweet, the Supreme leader quoted Mr Obama as saying that he could knock out Iran’s army. “Of course we neither welcome, nor begin war, but in case of war, US will leave it disgraced,” Khamenei posted.

He also called for U.S. officials to come clean and admit that they have it all wrong about Iran. He said U.S. was wrong in the past and it was again wrong at present, pertaining to the signing of the Iran nuclear deal.

In one tweet, he said that past presidents of the U.S. as well as Mr Obama at present have wished to make Iran surrender, but Iran had always hold out. He accused the Obama administration of being a Zionist regime, supporting terrorists and child killers. With or without the Iran deal, Khamenei said it will pursue its rhetoric against America and will continue to support those who were being oppressed by the administration, namely Palestine, Yemen, Syria, Bahrain and Lebanon.
