Fox News reports:
Iran fired as many as 15 ballistic missiles into Iraq, targeting U.S. military and coalition forces early Wednesday, officials said, in a major retaliation by the rogue regime after the U.S. airstrike that killed Iranian Quds Force Gen. Qassem Soleimani last week.
Ten missiles hit Al-Assad Air Base, one missile hit a military base in Erbil and four missiles failed to hit their targets, according to a U.S. military spokesman for Central Command, responsible for American forces in the Middle East. The attacks unfolded in two waves, each about an hour apart.
Initial assessments showed “no U.S. casualties,” a U.S. military official in Baghdad told Fox News.
A hostile enemy of the United Sates and the world’s biggest sponsor of terrorism attacked us. I wonder what democrats, AKA members of the U.S. Government, have to say about this:
As we pray for our troops & civilians, there is still no coherent strategy from @realDonaldTrump. The @WhiteHouse can’t adequately answer simple questions like, what are our goals with Iran? Did a drone strike advance those goals? Does Iraq voting us out advance those goals? https://twitter.com/JenGriffinFNC/status/1214701875158814720 …

✔@RepAdamSchiffWith reports of missile strikes launched by Iran against U.S. bases in Iraq, my thoughts and prayers are with our service members, diplomats and other personnel at risk, and with their families.
Praying for the safety of our troops and personnel in Iraq right now. https://twitter.com/cnnbrk/status/1214693068185710592 …

At least 10 rockets have hit an airbase that houses US forces in Iraq https://cnn.it/2QAaPdQ
Closely monitoring the situation following bombings targeting U.S. troops in Iraq. We must ensure the safety of our servicemembers, including ending needless provocations from the Administration and demanding that Iran cease its violence. America & world cannot afford war.
As you can see, democrats, who think thoughts and prayers are offensive to victim of mass shootings, are offering their thoughts and prayers to our troops who were not killed in this attack.
But surely the Muslim democrats must find this attack disturbing. Eh, not so much:
None of our daughters or sons in the military, nor the innocent Iraqi people, deserve more war and violence.
Congress must act now to stop this madness. https://twitter.com/IlhanMN/status/1214716419218296833 …
War doesn’t have a reset button, I learned this lesson at the age of Eight.
Lives will be lost, many innocent lives will be lost and the future of generations will be impacted.
Let’s call for peace.
Democrats can’t bring themselves to condemn this act of war because they are on Iran’s side over the United States. These democratic lawmakers, elected representatives of the American people, are in fact also the enemy of the country they pretend to serve.
