    Their time in power is much less tonight, they're screwing around with the wrong President. I think the dust will be blown off a lot B-52s before the next few hours pass.

    Iranians take credit for rocket attack on base housing US troops



    By Hamdi Alkhshali, CNN
    Updated 6:51 PM ET, Tue January 7, 2020


    (CNN)At least 10 rockets hit al-Asad airbase in Iraq, which houses US forces, a Sunni commander of the paramilitary forces in a nearby town told CNN.

    Qatri al-Obeidi, a commander in the nearby town of al-Baghdadi, said that the shelling has stopped for now. President Donald Trump visited the base in December 2018 to visit troops after Christmas. Vice President Mike Pence also visited the base in November 2019. The attack follows last week's deadly US drone strike that Trump ordered to kill key Iranian General Qasem Soleimani.

    Iranian state TV reported that the Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, or IRGC, "has hit U.S. Ain al-Asad airbase in Iraq with tens of missiles." The IRGC warned the US of of more "crushing responses in case of new aggression," according to state TV. The IRGC said it will target any regional state that becomes a platform for US aggression, a second banner on state TV read.

    No reports of American casualties yet, thank God. If this holds up I think the President will respond with restraint. One dead American and all hell will break loose.

    These mullahs need to dusted, if they aren't they will soon have a nuke and that makes everything moot at that point. I think it's coming real soon and it was mentioned they would or might buy a nuke, that will bring in another player who we have to deal with, it would be russia of course because I think China is too smart to sell a nuke to anyone, the russians on the other hand aren't the sharpest knives in the drawer.

    I have often wished that Iran would have won the asshole lottery instead of Iraq. we would not be dealing with this bullshit now. Saddam was in a box he was no threat militarily I think we kicked sadamís ass and Libyasí ass because they wanted to get off the petrodollar.

    Am listening to this latest news on FNC, while reading BB ...

    And agree with & praying for, what a poster in there wrote tonight:

    Iran has now fired missiles targeting U.S. troops in Iraq. Pray for President Donald J. Trump and his National Security Team, that God would give them wisdom as they make very difficult decisions.

    And pray for the safety of our military personnel and other innocent Iraqis who may be in harm’s way.
