Pressing Their Luck

In retaliation for the killing of Qasem Soleimani, Iran launched missile attacks at U.S. installations in Iraq. Apparently the Iranians would like to get another up close and personal view of our drones.

Multiple air bases housing U.S. troops in Iraq came under missile attack from Iran on Tuesday night, according to multiple reports.

Jennifer Griffin, the national security correspondent for Fox News, tweeted Tuesday that a “senior US military source in Iraq” confirmed an attack on the Iraqi and United States Armed Forces’ Al-Asad air base. A second attack occurred at the Irbil base, the Pentagon said in a statement.

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps said they fired the missiles in retaliation for the killing of Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani in a U.S. drone strike on Jan. 2, the Wall Street Journal reported.

“Under missile attack from Iran,” the source said. “These are either cruise missiles or short range ballistic missiles. All over the country.”

The good news is karma immediately struck the world’s leading terror sponsor. Fifty people were killed in a stampede during Soleimani’s funeral, of the fifteen missiles fired, four landed in Iran, a Ukrainian airliner crashed in Iran shortly after takeoff, and Iran enjoyed a 4.9 magnitude earthquake.

All in the same day.

I’d like to thing the good Lord had something to do with that.

  1. There’s been a lot of speculation as to whether or not the missiles Iran fired last night were paid for by Obama’s pallets of cash.
    Turns out, they were leftover fireworks from Hillary’s planned election night celebration!

    The missiles were fired by Iran for domestic consumption. “Look at us! We’re defying the Great Satan!” The missiles didn’t hit anything of importance because the Iranians knew we could crush them like a bug.

  2. Proof – True enough. It’s also fair to mention many airline experts believe the Iranian anti-aircraft shot down the Ukrainian airliner, thinking it was a US warplane making a missile run. They’re saying the speed and climb rate is not consistent with engine problems.

    TX Nick – I love the fact the president specifically said the missiles were bought and paid for by Obama.

    Ronni – The president said he was placing even more sanctions on Iran after that, so good luck Mullahs!
