    Story is unfolding as I type.

    Iran has launched another volley of missile strikes on a number of American facilities in Iraq, according to the semi-official Tasnim news agency. The new round of missiles follows the first by just over an hour.

    “A few minutes ago [3:30 am local time] the second wave of Iranian missile attacks on the US base is launched,” the news outlet reported.

    The ball is now in Trump’s and Iraq’s court. Iran retaliated against Trump’s blundering warmongers as promised and where this all ends up is anybody’s guess. If this goes as badly as I suspect, US war in Iraq will be kid’s play compared to US war with Iran and possibly others.

      I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".

    Iran has launched missile strikes aimed at US troops in Iraq in what it said was retaliation for the killing last week of top Iranian general Qassem Suleimani.

    The Pentagon confirmed that al-Asad air base in Iraq’s Anbar province, and Erbil base in northern Iraq, which both host a US contingent, had been hit by a salvo of more than a dozen missiles launched from Iran.

    Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), of which Suleimani was a member, issued a statement saying: “The brave soldiers of IRGC’s aerospace unit have launched a successful attack with tens of ballistic missiles on Al Assad military base in the name of martyr General Qassem Suleimani.”

    Iranian news sites showed video footage of missiles being launched into the night sky.

    This is happening a heck of a lot faster than I thought.

      I agree that’s why I thought my initial report was mistaken….the Humanist is just now reporting on it but nothing from the news outlets….But yes, I thought that Iran would have to consult with allies like China and/or Russia….

      But having said that, I don’t think that Iran, though not a super power, is any push-over…I’ve been impressed the more I’ve learned about Soleimani…and what I’ve heard is that they are adept diplomatically and militarily…I think that they must have been getting a lot of messages with the US pull-out of the nuclear treaty and other negative signals from the Trump Administration (relations with Israel, etc.) and like all sovereign states in their situation made contingency plans accordingly.

    Interesting that they seem to be  specifically targeting property rather than people..
