US embassy staff and the US ambassador in Baghdad have been evacuated, according to two unnamed Iraqi Foreign Ministry officials cited by Reuters, as hundreds of Iraqi protesters swam the embassy compound.
Iraqi supporters of a powerful Iranian-backed militia were attacking the outside of the fortified zone that surrounds the US embassy compound in Baghdad, protesting against American air strikes that killed 25 fighters from the group, news agencies reported.

I’m so happy the Iraqis appreciate what we did freeing them from the rule of Saddam Hussein.

Yeah that worked out real great :)
Nobody was asking us to free them.
It was a BS war that killed and injured a tremendous number of our best.
But at least a FORTUNE was made by Cheney et. al. :)
Or did someone think Islam and democracy were gonna work together just fine?
As the mentally-challenged GW Bush said, “the Iraqi people are thirsting for freedom”. Apparently, the freedom to kill us.
To be fair to Trump, he was against the Iraq War, and inherited a mess from Bush-Obama. Rotten way to start the year, but not a shock that Iraq has deteriorated.

Iraq Protesters Storm US Embassy in Baghdad - LIVE BREAKING NEWS COVERAGE
Fox News reporting hundreds of “Iraqi protesters” in Embassy compound.
I missed the moment when they asked to be freed.
Be careful with these ‘news’ reports. We’ve got Australia on fire, India in a deep freeze, climate change hysteria, multiple terror attempts worldwide, and on the heels of these are CNN, BBC, UK Guardian lefty reporters.
George Soros groups, rogue intel operatives are not sitting back while the US proceeds against deep state players like Brennan. Manufactured crisis after crisis, spending ammunition, these incidents are not random.
What is being witnessed are the dying throes of progressive, globalist causes.
No doubt there’s some warm weather down under, but it’s not unusual for this time of year. But leftists must find any pretext for exaggerating a crisis. Mercenaries will be paid to make attacks. Lefty reporters will be scripted to be in place with all these incidents.
The left absolutely must control the information channels in the view of their masters.
No, Ambassador and staff were evacuated. Unlike Bengazi where Hillary left them to die.
Pro-Iranian protesters tried to storm the US embassy in Baghdad in demonstrations over strikes on an Iran-backed militia group in Iraq
We apparently still have military inside the compound...
There are still some #US Military Guards currently within the Embassy. (video at link)
Saddam Hussein was the only thing that kept Iraq stable. The U.S. went in and destroyed that, letting every mutant crawl out of its hole to turn the place into a dump.
Think of him like the Daley family in Chicago.
You are very right.
Not even close.
The goal of progressivism /globalism is communism...and communism is, in the final analysis, not really a utopian vision but a means of a few authoritarians to round up the masses and put them in a zoo where they can be controlled.
It is not going to die.
Send Blackeater , or the equivalent, back with a green light to fire at will. Minigun mounted Little Birds . Napalm
