What’s different now is we have a president, we have a leader who has the gonads to use both of these — the economy and the military — to protect this country from little maggots around the world like this General Soleimani and ISIS and all the rest of them, ’cause that’s what they were. They’re not even in our league. It is only our restraint and our acknowledgment of our status as the world’s lone superpower and our morality — the fact that we are the good guys — that stops us from literally wiping the world out of these people.
But if you hit us, we now have a leader who is going to make you pay the price for it, and this is frightening and scary to children on the left, frightening and scary to adults who are children on the left. They have no comprehension of deterrence, no comprehension of strength. – Rush Limbaugh, 1/7/2020
FoxNews.com reports that
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.
President Trump tweeted a response late Tuesday evening: “All is well! Missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in Iraq. Assessment of casualties & damages taking place now. So far, so good! We have the most powerful and well equipped military anywhere in the world, by far! I will be making a statement tomorrow morning.”
The White House previously said he would not make an address to the nation Tuesday.
White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said right after the attack: “We are aware of the reports of attacks on U.S. facilities in Iraq. The president has been briefed and is monitoring the situation closely and consulting with his national security team.” It was not immediately clear how the U.S. may respond.
The Pentagon added: “In recent days and in response to Iranian threats and actions, the Department of Defense has taken all appropriate measures to safeguard our personnel and partners. These bases have been on high alert due to indications that the Iranian regime planned to attack our forces and interests in the region. As we evaluate the situation and our response, we will take all necessary measures to protect and defend U.S. personnel, partners, and allies in the region.”
Meantime, Iran state TV claimed Tehran launched “tens” of surface-to-surface missiles at the Al Assad Air Base. State TV described it as Tehran’s revenge operation over the killing of Soleimani.
Iran’s Revolutionary Guard then warned the U.S. and its regional allies against retaliating over the missile attack in Iraq.
The Guard issued the warning via a statement carried by Iran’s state-run IRNA news agency: “We are warning all American allies, who gave their bases to its terrorist army, that any territory that is the starting point of aggressive acts against Iran will be targeted.” The Guard in the warning also threatened Israel.
The latest U.S. intelligence assessment showed Iran had more than 2,000 ballistic missiles, Pentagon officials told Fox News.
The USS Harry Truman aircraft carrier strike group has been in the Gulf of Oman along with guided-missile destroyers, a guided-missile cruiser and at least one submarine. The Navy warships and submarine together had hundreds of Tomahawk cruise missiles with pre-planned targets locked into the missiles.
The ships would be ready to fire if given the order, two senior Pentagon officials told Fox News.
As I sit down to write this post, it is around 9:30 p.m. Central.
All of the guests which Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham have had on have had some interesting theories, including the theory that Iran missed on purpose, in order to show “strength” while not torqueing off “The Great Satan” too much.
I do not know if that is the case of not.
I am sure that President Trump will give us more information when he addresses the nation.
Here is what I know:
Iran hates every single American, including Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats. Like Neville Chamberlain and the Nazis, Pelosi and the Democrats are too blinded by their own arrogance to realize that they are being played.
There are no sane and intelligent people left among both the religious and secular leadership of Iran. They were all killed during the Iranian Revolution. That’s why wealthy Iranians sent their sons to American Colleges at the time, where most of them majored in engineering while romancing and marrying American coeds in order to stay in American where it was safe.
Iran is a Rogue Nation of Radical Islamic Barbarians which is widely acknowledged to be the leading sponsor of terrorism.
Iran has continued to work of the development of a nuclear weapon, laughing at the stupid naivete of Former President Barack Hussein Obama, while using his gift of $150,000,000,000 weapons, such as the missiles which they fired at those Air Bases in Iraq.
Finally, I know that I am glad that Donald J. Trump sits in the Oval Office and not Hillary Clinton.
Because, if the way that Pelosi and the Democrats are taking the side of Iran against the country which they are supposed to be loyal to is any indication, we would be royally screwed.
