A friend of mine has written:
"Iraq! You gave us a war! vs., we'll give you Haftsin."
Isn't this sentence wrong? AFAIK we can say: "Iraq, you gave us a war; but we['ll] give you Haftsin".
I have never seen vs. like that in a sentence and I feel it is incorrect, but since I am a foreigner learning English I thought it's better to ask.
ps. Haftsin (meaning 7 Ses) is a tradition in Iran in which we decorate somewhere (at Nowrooz, which like Christmas is the beginning of the year) using seven things which begin with Sin -which is the equivalent letter to S in Persian.
