Well the assistant sos of near East affairs is very disappointed with Iraq's lack of efforts to reign in Iranian backed militants and their attacks on coalition forces. As a result, he says that we will continue to conduct pre-emptive measures against these groups in an effort to keep coalition forces safe and eliminate Iranian attempts to essentially push their hegemony on the Iraqi government. So now Iran is fighting the USA in Iraq, Israel from Syria, and Saudi Arabia from Yemen. At what point will enough be enough??

Iran continues to spread it's terrorists across the region further deteriorating the security and humanitarian situations there. I strongly believe The time to launch an allied offensive against the regime is now. They must be shown that these provocations cannot and will not go unpunished.

WASHINGTON — A week after a rocket attack killed three coalition personnel in Iraq, the State Department said today it was disappointed with the Iraqi caretaker government's performance in protecting US and coalition troops in Iraq. If the Iraqi government does not do a better job of protecting coalition forces, the United States will be forced to take actions to protect its personnel, a US official warned.

“The Iraqi government is at a decision point,” Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs David Schenker told journalists on a State Department call today. “If it doesn’t take steps to hold accountable those responsible for the attacks on coalition forces, which are there at the invitation of the Iraqi government, the US will be forced to continue to protect our forces proactively.”

“It is no secret that we have been enormously disappointed with the performance of the government of Iraq in protecting American and coalition forces, which are in Iraq at the invitation of the Iraqi government,” Schenker said. “That remains a point of contention.”

“We have been told by the government of Iraq that they will investigate thoroughly and bring to justice those individuals responsible for the most recent attacks,” he continued. “And they did in fact do some operations to arrest people. But I think the proof is in the pudding. We have heard this before from the government of Iraq.”

Are Iran and North Korea still the only holdouts?? I think Cuba capitulated under Obama, but I am not sure. The Sudan was conquered awhile ago, and now the UAE and Saudi use their mercenaries from Sudan to fight in Libya and Yemen.

Then US forces should expect more reprisal attacks.

They must be shown that these provocations cannot and will not go unpunished.

Do as we say or die ...

Hopefully the pilots become bedridden with the virus so the government has to reverse this moronic decision. Can’t bomb anyone when your pilots are all on a sick day.

Iran thought they would be able to use the stupid US to take over Iraq and other Arab countries. With Obama they had it all. A few kick backs and all would have been controlled by Iran. Iran went into Iraq and fought against the US with guerilla warfare.

Enter Trump. If you use illegal warfare techniques against American soldiers. You will likely end up as dead as them.
