2 missiles struck first after some time they were given orders to check the places hit for damage and casualties etc. so he gets sent off in a Jeep with others I guess etc. to check out the ground zeros. He says during this patrol, they noticed orange lights in the sky and then the orange lights just came straight down real fast hitting the areas they were just at blowing those places up. Obviously while telling us he was excited and indicated to us he is a bit shell shocked. Also says he will never look at the sky the same.

Wow, that sounds like a close call! I'm glad your son and the troops he was with are OK! I hope that they continue to be well after this event.

Did he mention if there were any alarms or alerts related to the 2nd wave of missiles that came in? If so, did they come before they saw the orange lights in the sky if at all?

Yep, its on!

Hezbollah affiliated channel posted '' Revenge has begun ''

Multiple strikes at US/Iraqi military base originally thought to be MLBS

The "revenge" had already started when Soleimani was meeting other world terrorists in Iraq to see how to attack the U.S., and allies... AKA kill Americans and other people.

Killing Soleimani was the right thing to do. There are reports that terrorists have been fleeing Iraq after they saw that President Trump is no former President Obama, whom liked to kneel before terrorists, complain that their attacks were caused by the U.S., and in general, just like the left-wing media and the majority of the "never Trump crowd" are doing President Trump would not stand idle when terrorists kill Americans, or our allies.

Or perhaps the "left with the rest of the never Trump crowd" wanted to give the Iranians more than the 116 metric tons of Uranium the Obama administration allowed Russia to send to Iran, and pay them billions of dollars meanwhile the Iranians use that money to get stronger and continue their "nuclear weapons program"?...

A logical conclusion, to a logical situation.

I suppose Iran had its chance, they should have got rid of the old order of religious talking bubble heads, there about as tarded as goats, only not even a quarter as useful, and got with the more magnificent system we have here in the west. You know were we constantly bicker about which figure head did what during which dinner party they attended constantly feverishly and oh so full of gusto and bravado.

As you know, our way its only about as tarded as fleas on a dog. Which is a great improvement over the majority of the world. I must say.

All truth to tell, our western system, it is quite an upgrade from the older systems. And so, once again, what and why is everybody fighting over? Not like I don't know the answer to my own question. But long ago the thought was in precedence, there are far to many people who are alive, which should not be.

You all have been warned. You little warmongering worriers you. As a general rule, and this goes for everybody, if you don't start nothing, there will be nothing. But seems most cant help themselves.

I think the efficiency and accuracy of the missiles surprised the Pentagon. Iran did not even use their advanced missiles for the strike. You can see in air images they moved against drone hangars, taxiways, ramps, and depot tents, and command-and-control structures. They went after the base where drone took off to kill Soleimani.

We would would be too busy at war with Russia if Hillary was President. Do not forgot get the DNC started the whole "Russia Hacked us" Hoax )leaks are not hacks fyi( which could be considered an act of war luckily she did not and we have another sandbox to make into glass. Middle East becomes a land of glass that would reflect the suns rays back to space fixing global warming.

I'm seeing this from multiple sources on Twitter, from BBC Correspondents to NBC, claimed to be confirmed from military commanders on the ground that it's happening.

From senior US military source in Iraq:
“Under missile attack from Iran. These are either cruise missiles or short range ballistic missiles. All over the country.”

No regular links yet, no report of damage of casualties.

BBC: BBC: US airbase in Iraq hit by rockets - reports


ABC: Iran launches missiles into US air bases in Iraq: US official

A U.S. official confirms to ABC News that ballistic missiles have been fired from inside Iran at multiple U.S. military facilities inside Iraq on Wednesday morning local time. The facilities include Erbil in northern Iraq and Al Asad Air Base in western Iraq, the official said.

Is it likely Obama-Biden sent these Rockets to Iran, and now Iran is attempting to kill Americans in Iraq with them?

Please President Trump...spare the Iranian people, and save American/Allies lives on the battlefield.

Kill the leadership, ASAP. TODAY. RIGHT NOW for God's sake.

He left for Mar a Lago didn't he?

Edit to add: nevermind, I'm tired, didn't check the date, wasn't until I looked for news on this.

Time for bed methinks.
