Iran launched more than a dozen missiles at two Iraqi bases that hold US troops in what appears to be retaliation for the American airstrike that killed a top Iranian general last week, the Pentagon said Tuesday.

Well that did not take long.


God help peace in the Middle East now.

Please don't let Trump do something just as mental.

Because it will simply all end in tears.

At what exactly?

Instigating a possible third world war?


I mean you ken how the first one started, that being with an assassination.

Got home from my son's baseball practice and saw this. Everyone needs to keep an eye on this. Will be checking for uptdates, Praying this didn't take any lives and will DE-escalate the situation, prayers to our brave men and women that no one was hurt.

America United, unstoppable....

Trump left Iran with no alternative but to retaliate in some way.

Now that it appears it has it would seem that Trump will probably feel the US has no option but to further escalate things.

Absolute madness.

Good time to knock out their nuclear facilities.If they aren`t taken out, sure as the sun rises there will be a nuke attack on a American city.War with Iran has been inevitable since the Islamic zealots took power in 79,longer the US waits the more likely a nuke exchange becomes.Sad it`s coming but only a revolt in Iran or collapse of the US could have stopped it.

Madness is a perfect assessment of the whole situation.

Sad state of affairs brought about by rather a sad excuse for a Human being.

Yes let's spread possible radioactive isotopes and contaminants into the atmosphere, that will work.


Good time to let cooler heads prevail if you ask me.

But chance would be a fine thing indeed.

No, it was payback for the hundreds of Americans and allied people that general killed first. Self defense.

Funny how some people think they can just keep on killing our friends and family, then when we finally fight back and kill one of theirs, it is called an assassination that requires revenge.
See how ridiculously unbalanced that thinking is?

Hell of a lot less than seeing New York or LA go up in a mushroom cloud and then every city in Iran would go up.

All MSM was reporting yesterday 3,500 US troops deployed to Iraq, video of a lot of troops boarding planes

Next day those bases are bombed

Thanks MSM, I’m sure to Iran it was obvious where those troops went let’s hope not to many dead

Well, he does know all the big words.


Maybe he does not, and is just a bloodthirsty bastard megalomaniac with the onset of vascular dementia to contend with.

After all, just about anything is possible or so it seems where Donald is concerned bar common sense.

I ken the difference between the Kurds and the Iranian Quds Force, are you sure Trump does? LoL

Yet apparently you feel the US had alternatives to retaliating against hundreds of US deaths the terrorist Iranian regime has sponsored over the past decade? I'm sorry, but your logic is off kilter. Peace at any cost, when dealing with an enemy that is on a religious crusade, only leads to laying in a ditch raped, beaten to death, and beheaded. We're dealing with an entity that doesn't speak tea and crumpets, they speak death... it is what they worship and what they respect. We simply need to find the magical threshold at which the tolls is too great and their mind and body are broken. That's called "war" and it is the language the Ayatollahs speak. You may value a country that cowers before that to avoid it at all costs, I value a country that rolls up her sleeves and proceeds to exact a pound of flesh for every hairline scratch acquired.

If you look back at the history between Iran and the USA - Iran will run in and perform their 'token revenge'... Which will not amount to anything and then they'll run away like the dogs they are. (Not the people of Iran, the governing bodies)...

I sure hope the President knows his history (Operation Praying Mantis, etc).

It's time to deescalate - not go farther!

Iran has not overtly attacked anyone without good cause in the past 200 years.

Im pretty sure Trump can't remember his last Big Mac nevermind history.


The deescalating i definitely agree.
