Okay, so, the thing is…
The reason the soldiers are in these places is to be sitting ducks waiting to get bombed, so that the US can have a chance to “strike back.”
At least two-dozen American military personnel based in Iraq and Syria were injured in drone attacks last week that officials said were launched by Iran-backed proxy groups.
The largest attack carried out against a US base was on Oct. 18 when 20 troops suffered “minor injuries,” after numerous one-way drones targeted al-Tanf Garrison in southeastern Syria, US military officials said, according to the Washington Post.
All injured personnel have since returned to duty, the officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told the newspaper.
On the same day, multiple drones also targeted the US and its allies in two different attacks on Ain al-Asad Air Base in western Iraq that left four people with minor injuries, the Washington Post reported. Those injured also returned to duty.
They’re right at America’s doorstep!
A US citizen working as a contractor died the same day after he went into cardiac arrest during a shelter-in-place order at the base.
The Pentagon has said the groups behind the attacks are supported by Iran and its Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.
Yeah. I know. Iran admits that. Stop pretending like it’s a revelation of some kind.
“What we are seeing is the prospect for more significant escalation against U.S. forces and personnel across the region in the very near term coming from Iranian proxy forces, and ultimately from Iran,” Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder, the Pentagon press secretary, told NBC News.
By the way, do you guys know what this skull face with the braces on it that Elvis Dunderhoff now puts in every article is?
I keep thinking it is from some 1980s metal band. It’s not Iron Maiden, I know that. Is it from Megadeth? I have been trying to figure it out for weeks now. He puts the pictures in every article.
It’s kinda cool looking. Maybe a little tired of it at this point.
