I am told from US official these are short range ballistic or cruise missiles being fired from Iranian territory at multiple US bases and targets inside Iraq. https://t.co/xKh2NPiDyz— Jennifer Griffin (@JenGriffinFNC) January 7, 2020
PRIVATE SOURCE: This is only the first wave, depending on US military movements, it can be the last. A very small attack compared to what is to come.
Seems that the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps elements involved need cluster bomb thank yous.
If they are coming from inside Iran this would be an official act of war.
Hold your britches, Iranian mullahs are in for a bad night...
If Americans were injured or killed - well respond at a time and place and in a manner of our choosing.
I would not want to be anywhere near the launch site of said rockets.
Probably being fired from cultural sites. Well,Trump did warn them...
Stealth Bombers pick up line 2 please.
Unless those missiles were fired from the back of a Toyota Pickup, shoot and scoot, we have the exact coordinates of where those rockets were fired.
If they came from a base or semi permanent firing pad, they will become history.
Here’s hoping every single one of their nuke facilities is on the top of Trump’s list of 52. Destroy their nukes and as much of their military infrastructure as we can, then leave.
assuming out troops are use to missiles firing at them, it depends what the Iranians are firing..
The tooth fairy?
Destroy their oil infrastructure. Although that might have too much of an impact on the civilian population (starvation, for example). Save that for last.
9 rockets does not seem particularly heavily. Look at what Russia did in Ukraine to see some heavy rocket artillery in action.
Good Lord, they need marketing help.
The Anal Assad Airbase?

Someone is reporting that these missiles are coming from INSIDE IRAN and are being shown on Iranian TV.
