Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, January 26, 2020

One rocket hit a dining facility Sunday on the compound of the US Embassy in Baghdad, a US official told CNN. The official said at this early stage there are reports of minor damage. Neither the Pentagon nor the State Department have made public any reports of injuries and have not returned requests from CNN for comment on the incident.

The US is calling on the government of Iraq "to fulfill its obligations to protect our diplomatic facilities," the State Department spokesperson said.

Now that's just funny.

Better tell them to get on the next flight home because the US can't guarantee their safety.

Didn't donald just send a few thousand marines there to secure this place?

That said, if these are just those cheesy "grenade on a stick" rockets they lob at Israel it's not a big deal.

I would love for Europe and the ME and wake up the next morning to find all the US bases empty of everything...gone.

No troops, no furniture, nothing but empty buildings.

Unless it's over your neighborhood, am I right?

They did ask us to leave if you don't recall. Its the host nation's responsibility, if they don't do something we will, then you will complain about that.

You know what's pathetic?? American arrogance that's what is pathetic. We forced ourselves onto their country. We destroyed them set up shop(Green Zone) and now we demand that they protect our embassy. If I were Iraqi I'd tell America to KMA. That's what is pathetic Andrea. FULL STOP.

Sorry. Maybe it is just me but I have 1000x more concern for our troops than our 'diplomatic'staff. These are clinger ons that accomplish nothing and should be eliminated as positions. We need staff for visa processing, nothing more. Get our people out of that country and let evolution take its course.

GET OUT OF OUR COUNTRY!

I'm pretty sure if there were any injuries, the Trump administration is lying about it.

You are sorry. Pathetic even. I am concerned for any and all Americans. These "clinger ons"? They are there to do the will of the President. I know current and former diplomatic staff. All of them are good people. Some conservative and some liberal but all people serving this country. US Troops signed up knowing the possibilities and in theory given the capacity to deal with them. Diplomats on the other hand are the olive branch and who SHOULD be used to avoid involving troops in countries like Iraq.

Based on his opinions on this site, IraGoldberg wholeheartedly supports the ultimate "clinger-on" -- Israel. He is happy to see Americans die for its behalf.

If you think that, you have reading comprehension problems.

Wow. I never hear Laura talk about "karma" when it comes to muslims hanging gays and transgenders in the street. I wonder why?

Hey. It's just a little possible brain damage. What's a little brain damage amongst Republicans? Not big deal!

They were not using them anyway.

Wow. I never hear Boazo talking about the Russians hanging gays and transgenders in the streets. Wonder why that is?

Not to be confused with a firm but unfair mattress.

We also have one of those around here.

It's a shame Dems want other countries to rocket us and not let us do anything about it. We killed an Iranian leader for killing our people and Dems STILL say we shouldn't have done it. Basically, Dems are on record saying they are OK with other countries doing whatever they want to us. But, as always, that rhetoric will change when a Dem is in office.
