BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – A base housing U.S. military personnel near Baghdad was reportedly targeted by several rockets this evening, the AFP News Agency reported.

“4 rockets target base housing US personnel near Iraq capital,” the AFP reported, citing a security official.

Prior to this report, several claims appeared on Twitter about an alleged Iranian-backed attack on the Al-Taji Base, which is located near the capital city of Baghdad.

Lucas Tomilson, a journalist for Fox News at the Pentagon, said U.S. official denied the attack on the Al-Taji Base.

How clever! Everyone else are idiots but you. Even people in their own country who want all US fores to go out of Iraq are idiots because of their idiot desire according to you. So clever!

First it started by US planting their bases all over ME, then they organised head-choppers to attack Iraq and Syria, then they illegaly occupied those countries, all in preparation for war with Iran. Now it is the open shooting war between their proxies, guess what is just around the corner? but don’t be guessing who started it all as that is a historic fact and no amount of prosstitute spinn is going to change that

Well, if these idiots retaliated to US retaliation, we can expect that all Iraqi Hellbollah’s bases will be trampled under Godzilla’s foot soon.

USA have less than 5000 troops….Iraqi shia PMU( 100.000) and are part of Iraq armed forces…in case of open war..USA would have to leave Iraq like they did in Somalia or Lebanon 1983!
