According to Drudge , the embassy has not been evacuated and embassy staff members are in a safe room.

I guess i misread. Sounds like the ambassador was evacuated ~8 hours ago, but not everyone!


Some local staff were evacuated from the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq, while others remained inside a safe room within the compound as thousands of protesters and militia fighters thronged the gates in fury at U.S. airstrikes in Iraq, the AP reports.

Well if they raid the compound i guess US defence personel has no other choice and open fire.

It is that or be lynched , burned and hung from a bridge.



.


it's that or stop bombing their countries... they mob the embassy because they know nothing will happen to the US, no sanctions, no punishment, no protests in America just another 'oops our bad, we're cool' moments



they bombed Iraqi personnel backed by iran? they killed 25 people? along with some militants operating under Iraqi law enforcement?

Or it could be China pushing its narrative of Hongkong being a color revolution initiated and sustained by western powers and this being their way of "diplomatically" suggesting that they are willing to stir up things in return.


All of that from a laser pointer?

It was probably a masonic shape shifting reptilian jew pointing it.....

Bomb the living @#$% out of Iran. Should have been done immediately. SInk all their ships, bomb their bases. Mess with the bull get the horns. I assure anyone, there will be no further problems with Iran for a long long time.

Typically lasers for weapons are IR, meaning you can't see them.

Looks like some idiots with some laser pointers to me.
Small arms are more often than not red lasers in the visible spectrum, or green.

very expensive set ups


The OP said they were "laser targeting" the building. As in laser designation for a missile strike. At least that's what laser targeting infers. Which are IR.

I'm not talking about lasers on rifles.

If they were paining the target, it'd be a smoking hole by now. Also, unless I'm mistaken, the lasers used for that are a different type anyway.

It was fear tactics/intimidation with a cat toy, nothing more.

Barry? What are you doing there? (/sarcasm)

On another note I was told by a friend Sigonella is on high alert?

I would think so...?

To me, that sounds like plan B.
Plan A should be "look, I know we've been dicks for your entire life- but we're leaving now kbye!" and pull out everything. No support, for anyone. All military bases close, all troops come home.
Leave the embassys open, I guess.

Then, if they STILL want to mess with the most expensive military on the planet.... How hard could it be? We've already got drones that can fire bullets or detonate small explosives. Simply detonate anyone who shows offensive for a few years. Go away, we're baitin'.

It wouldn't be difficult to sterilize the entire region- but that's just rude. If we're doing that there are a LOT of places that need it, to get the human race back on track for the correct landmass to population ratio.

No. Just take out the leaders. The CIA has ways of doing that with an illness.

I heard they sent two apaches also along with the troops.

Well heck. I didn't know wtf was going on. I was watching the feeds, saw these black robed dudes with guns, and a few minutes later saw red and green laser spots on the building looking for the US troops on the roof, exactly where they had been. Reported it here. Turned out to be Iraq security forces, I guess. (Still not dead sure of that.)

But the bottom line is Trump and the Pentagon acted, sent in troops, and Apaches lit that sky up with flares. I think this game is over. No way they'd dare attack that embassy now.

He was on a scheduled leave/vacation and is headed back.

The Iraqis stated he "evacuated", no one else (if you care only to read the quoted old sources as this was hashing-out almost a day ago).

Many sources state the same:



-[snip]-
Ambassador Matthew Tueller is headed to the embassy in Baghdad following an attack on the facility by Iranian-controlled militias, cutting short a trip amid claims that he abandoned the post.

“Reports that he has been evacuated are false,” a State Department spokesman told the Washington Examiner. “He is returning to the embassy.” Tueller, who took over as the top American diplomat in Iraq in June, was “on previously scheduled personal travel for over a week” prior to the attack Tuesday, the spokesman said.


Not hard to find, but the fact he cut his trip to return speaks volumes amid fanning flames.

Edit: from your Axios source you posted:



A State Department spokesperson said in a statement that "U.S. personnel are secure and there has been no breach," adding that Ambassador Matthew Tueller, who had been on a scheduled vacation, is returning to the embassy.

It makes me so angry listening to how badly our domestic-terrorist media organizations want the Iraq situation to deteriorate.

CNN just now: "This embassy siege is far from being over."

I read here often, post rarely unless a topic I am well versed.

Here I am at a loss, with the exception of oil business (or water my last adventure inside waste water industrial management and potability).

Too much US and international money in Iraq, Syria is a "wild west" for nations, Yemen...hell not going to list here.

Oil will remain stable.

Out of curiosity, how much oil did the USA profit from out of Iraq?

I know Zero by the US Government or affiliates.
But investment has been in near 3/4 a billion.

The candidate President Trump is so afraid of, Joe Biden, said this weekend that if we don't stop relying on Oil, we're all dead.

Maybe we should go to solar, before we kill ourselves?

I've never had an avatar in 10+ years of ATS membership. But if I were to one day develop the urge, it might be a YODA avatar, since "Care We Must" is something Yoda said in an old Star Wars movie, which caused me to choose CareWeMust as my username in 2007.
