What a really good thing that the US Congress voted to tie the President’s hands or we would be in BIG trouble !
Sirens on and Jets are flying over the area.....The Coalition confirms small rockets impacted the Iraqi base hosting troops in the International Zone, Feb. 16 at 3:24 a.m. (Iraq Time). No casualties. Investigation ongoing.
Maybe they should send all those missiles they confiscated back to Iran.
Harassment. Likely an Iranian proxy. The Iranians want to provoke us into a shooting war hoping the Doves in this country will wail against any response by President Trump as an escalation the dems can use against him in an election year and claim President Trump will be the start of WWIII.
NOT a coincidence that this comes shortly after 8 “Republicans” joined ALL the dems in voting to limit President Trump’s ability to conduct military action against Iran.
US officials ‘confirm’ multiple rockets targeted the US embassy, located in Baghdad’s Green Zone. This is the 19th attack on American interests in Iraq in 4 months. No casualties reported.
Extremely unlikely that that mullahs took that Congressional vote into consideration, right ?
Hmm.., what would Hussein Obama and ValJar do ?
Going off line now.....trust people will stay on top of the news about this....goood Night all...
They would get Susan Rice to go on all the Sunday talk shows and lie her ass off.
Why did we invade Iraq again? Don’t blast my question. I was there twice with BOTH father and son as CIC.
Hmm..., let’s see, if you were in the US Embassy in Bagdad would you prefer President Trump or Hussein Obama and Hillary (what difference does it make?) Rodham in charge ?
Why the hell are you asking me that?
Sorry, just rhetorical, not directed at you.
OK, sorry! I mistook it as directed personally.
To answer; I’d storm the gates of hell if Trump had my back.
At the very least, the practical reality of what Congress did to President Trump, was to significantly invrease motivation for further attacks against all U.S. targets in the CENTCOM AOR.
The no-moral-boundaries, religiously militant, anti-American left-wing, (embodied in the DNC/RINO/Deep State Party), could have even been involved at this point.
Just like multiple cyber attacks were conducted CONUS, to provide the DNC with the false narrative it needed, has been proven and broken down here —
— I wouldn’t believe for a moment, there aren’t anti-American leftists in our own IC, or fake humamitarian NGO’s who wouldn’t prod, or pay for these types of attacks OCONUS attacks, to manipulate and increase anti-Trump narratives.
The more the left gets away with, the more violent and brazen their efforts and attacks become.
The first time it seemed like a good idea at the time. I thought so, but I was 18. Anyone who would invade a neighbouring country must be Hitler.
I think the second time was because a bunch of Saudis under the people in Afghanistan gave W an excuse to invade the Islamic countries of his choice, and he thought it better to invade Iraq than Saudi Arabia.
We should have occupied Mecca.
What a really good thing that the US Congress voted to tie the Presidents hands or we would be in BIG trouble !
you misunderstand ... its big trouble if we do not follow the Constitution else how would the “greatest deliberative body in the world” get to exercise its prerogatives? I’m sure the bad guys will leave plenty of time for debate after they launch their nuclear missiles.
