On Tuesday, mourners with an Iran-backed militia stormed the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad as the Iraqi government refused to intervene. Protesters lit the embassy on fire and shouted, "Death to America!" The attack followed U.S. airstrikes on Sunday against the Iran-backed militia after an American contractor was killed last week in a rocket attack on an Iraqi military base.
"Iran killed an American contractor, wounding many. We strongly responded, and always will. Now Iran is orchestrating an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. They will be held fully responsible," President Donald Trump tweeted on Tuesday morning. "In addition, we expect Iraq to use its forces to protect the Embassy, and so notified!"
After the rocket attack last week, the U.S. blamed Kata'ib Hezbollah, an Iraqi state-sanctioned militia backed by Iran. The airstrikes on Sunday killed 25 members of the militia, the Associated Press reported.
The mob originally gathered to mourn the slain militia members, but later marched to the U.S. Embassy chanting, "Down, Down USA!" They raised yellow militia flags and taunted the embassy's security staff, spraying graffiti reading, "Closed in the name of the resistance."
AP journalists saw the mob try to scale the walls of the embassy, shouting, "Down, down USA!" and "Death to America!" and "Death to Israel!"

Time for a joint operation with Israel, using enormous air power, and taking out ALL of the Iranian military and weapons research facilities. This should be followed by seizing of all Iranian assets held in the US.
Has the Fake News media asked Barry the Muslim his thoughts about his friends in Iran?? What about John Kerry, he is also buddies with the mullah’s??
Inquiring minds want to know.
Why are we still in Iraq? The neocons are salivating at starting a war with Iran. Trump will lose in 2020 if the neocons get their way.
The Rats cant run as the Anti-War Party if there is no war. The Deep State players will happily give them one.
This is why removing the Baathists was a horrid idea. Iraq is little more than an Iranian vassal state now.
Chanting ‘Death to America!’
Sounds like half the Democrat Party.
Why are we in the middle east?
Just bring all troops home and let them kill each other.
We’ve already shown that we can outproduce them in oil, so just pull out.
Misleading Title. The embassy hasn’t been stormed yet.
Don’t they get tired of the same old tune? Probably not. Their minds have limited capacity, so they can concentrate on only a few things: sex, hate America, sex with underage children, slice necks, pork bad, Jews bad, sex with goats.
Tlaib and Omar haven’t been seen in a couple of days. Coincidence?
Thru Iran,Russia and China Hezbollah has assets all over the world just waiting.
In 1224 the Arabs invented the condom by using a goat intestine.
It 1837 the British refined that idea by taking the intestine out of the goat
I have a feeling Obama, Kerry and others who support Iran are stirring up Iran/Militias to get us into a war in attempt to hurt President Trump’s election.
Just think Obama would have ordered the embassy to surrender
It would be consistent with who they are, and would not be surprising in the least.
