Breaking: Iran Backed Troops Just Attacked U.S. Forces

Iran is really pushing their luck here. If we had any other leader in office they would have been dealt with already. But hopefully, Biden is starting to realize that the nuclear deal talks are not working. Iran’s latest abuse is its attack on U.S. Forces in Iraq…

U.S. troops stationed at a military base in Iraq were attacked on Wednesday with a barrage of Katyusha rockets that landed inside the base.

“According to an Iraqi officer, an Iraqi base housing U.S. troops in the western Anbar province was hit with five Katyusha rockets on Wednesday evening; three other rockets fell outside the base’s parameter,” the Associated Press reported. “The officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations, said U.S.-led coalition forces at the base were forced into shelters by the barrage.

Sources said that there was no immediate sign of any significant damage or causalities from the attacks.

U.S. officials have warned recently of attacks from Iranian-backed proxies in retaliation for U.S. forces killing Qassem Soleimani, the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Qods Force (IRGC-QF), a U.S.-designated terrorist organization, in 2020.

“Two explosive-laden drones were shot down on Tuesday by Iraq’s air defenses as they approached the Ain al-Asad air base, which hosts U.S. forces,” Reuters reported.”

“U.S. officials in recent weeks had warned that they expected an uptick in attacks against U.S. forces in Iraq and Syria, in part because of the second anniversary of the killing of top Iranian general Qassem Soleimani.”

“A similar attack was foiled on Monday, when Iraqi air defenses downed two drones as they approached a base hosting U.S. forces near Baghdad’s international airport.”

We should really do something about this attack, but seeing as how we took months to get Americans out of Afghanistan, and how the Biden Admin claimed they would fix the border crisis, it’s doubtful that we will act with any urgency, that is if the Biden Admin responds at all.
