A second round of missiles has started against our men and women.

That would then rule out a rogue commander launching a strike.

I pray tonight for no US or Allied casualties.

A very sad day for the people of Iran.

I have been watching FOX news all afternoon and evening. I am watching it now. They have not said anything about a second round of missiles.

Trump says no casualties.

Iran won the toss and has elected to receive.

I didn't hear this part. I'm supposed to be working there starting next month.

I was also supposed to be heading to Erbil next week, fortunately that got canceled. I'm dodging bullets left and right :???:

This is getting weird....



I’m fairly certain that Iran’s rockets aren’t accurate enough to pull that off, particularly if fired from more than a mile or two away.

I think Iran was at least smart enough to give Iraq a heads up, who let us know the target to make sure there would be no deaths. It makes sense, they can tell their people they retaliated, and we know they really don't want an escalation. They will claim troops died and we are lying about it. It's very similar to something we would do.

Iran will not give black box to Boeing.

They accidentally shot it down?

On purpose since it was Ukraine?

Trudeau is a wimp..Canada will do nothing if it turns out the jet was shot down either accidentally or on purpose by Iran.

Donald Trump may indeed be willing to take the gloves off when dealing with Iran, based upon this unaired 1980 interview. Some of the things he said back then are very interesting.

No casualties. Iran and US maybe taking a step back?

I've read that Iraq was given advance warning, and that information was passed to US troops. Iranian state TV also showed the missiles being launched. It smells like a show to try and gain favor with the hardliners in Iran while at the same time not provoking a response from the US.
Do what you say you're gonna do.
