An Iranian regime-run media outlet claimed that more than 80 Americans were killed in an Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps missile strike on US forces in Iraq early Wednesday. "An informed source at the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps said over 80 American troops were killed and some 200 wounded in the IRGC's missile strikes on the US airbase of Ain al-Assad in Anbar province in western Iraq," Mehr News reported on Wednesday.

It'd be kinda hard to say no one died if there were really casualties. Sooner or later the families will want to know where their loved ones are.

Hmmm, what to believe... propaganda of a foreign nation, or a source closer to the affected area?

Like Iraq? I mean this is the kinda of obvious -------- you'd expect from Baghdad Bob or Iragoldberg but try to keep perspective.

80 KIAs would fill the floor of a C17. It would land at Andrews, then to grave's registration, then released to the family for burial. There isn't a way in hell to keep this stuff secret.
I am really over joyed this Iranian general got his seat in hell, we were trying to kill the SOB 18 years ago. He was a money and supply man, built infrastructure that killed many more Iraqis than the US Army ever thought about. Believe it or not, the Sunni and Shea got along fairly well until he organized kill teems to wipe out Sunni in the An-bar.

It's pretty obvious this didn't happen. Not even sure why it's worth parroting Iranian propaganda here...

Not now that you know, but when it wasn't known MSN and the rest of the DRLeft were willing to parrot this propaganda ...

You would aw well, until you looked the fool....

Why would anyone believe the Liberal media, or for that matter anyone on the DRLeft?

What are you even talking about?
Also, why?

Of course Iran is lying.

Their Hero General was killed.

They can't just ignore it.

So. They're saving face.

If 80 Americans were actually killed, you think Trump would pass up an opportunity to lead the nation into war?

Especially since he needs a distraction from the impeachment and a bridge into his re election.

You guys wanna do an over/under on how many emails Karen has already fired off to the manager over at The Times of Israel?

I'm going with 5.

The propaganda wasn't intended for consumption by anyone outside Iran or their proxies.

There is a simpler, more likely, conclusion (occam's razor). And it has precedence....

Both sides are lying.

Plus, the article is in an Israeli publication.

All 3 sides are lying.
