On Wednesday, March 11, 2020, two U.S. troops and a British solider were killed in a rocket attack on a military base in Iraq, according to a U.S. official.
In addition, the official reported that roughly a dozen coalition personnel were injured during the attack. However, this was the initial report and could be subject to change.
Foreign coalition members suffered wounds ranging from “light to critical”, a coalition official told AFP.
Britain’s Defense Ministry stated it was “aware of an incident involving UK service personnel” in Iraq and an investigation was being conducted.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson described the attack as “deplorable” and said the UK foreign minister had reached out US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
Coalition spokesman Colonel Myles Caggins revealed that more than 15 rockets struck the base, which is located close to Baghdad.
Previously, the Iraqi army said the attack on the Taji base did not bring about any injuries or damage.
According to Iraqi security forces, they discovered the launch vehicle that was allegedly used to carry out the attacks.
Images posted on social media showed a vehicle that was converted to launch Katyusha rockets.
The U.S. government has blamed Iran-backed factions from Iraq’s Hashed Al Shaabi military network for recent attacks that shared a similar M.O.
After Wednesday’s attack, three warplanes likely belonging to the US-led coalition attacked Hashed positions on Iraq’s border with Syria, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
“Ten explosions shook the area near Albukamal,” said the organization’s head, Rami Abdulrahman.
Tensions have been heating up since the U.S. government took out Iranian military leader Qasem Soleimani earlier in January.
This is another illustration why the U.S. should completely abandon the Middle East, a region that is condemned to instability.
Hopefully, Trump gets the memo and starts pulling troops out of the region.

America First Patriot Kris Kobach Believes Democrats are Using the Wuhan Virus Crisis to Push Socialism
U.S. Senate Candidate Kris Kobach believes Democrats are politicizing the Wuhan Virus to push socialist policies.
He asserted, “Many Democrats are exploiting the coronavirus pandemic to launch a full-bore push for socialism—making the socialist rhetoric of the early Democratic presidential debates look tepid by comparison.”
The former Kansas Secretary of State believes that Democrats are taking advantage of the Wuhan Virus pandemic to push for a “centralized, national health care system.”
That means “No more private insurance, private clinics, or private hospitals.”
Kobach correctly notes that “the communist country [China] that unleashed this plague upon the world was the epitome of centralized control.”
But for radical Democrats, that does not even enter the equation. For them, it’s control at all costs.
Sanders is not alone.
New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio called for “a nationalization of crucial factories and industries that could produce the medical supplies to prepare this country for what we need.”
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo established a state-run hand sanitizer factory, and has even threatened the use of state power to control prices. This is only a testing ground for even larger collectivist schemes.
From a big picture perspective, Kobach understands what Democrats’ endgame is with these calls for government involvement in the economy during the pandemic:
Many on the Left are also calling for massive expansions of the welfare state that have little or nothing to do with the coronavirus. This is what the socialist Left has been demanding for decades. Their demands aren’t about bringing the coronavirus crisis to a swift close; they are about enlarging the dependency class. They are exploiting the coronavirus for all it’s worth.
Kobach called attention to how private companies such as General Motors and Tesla are stepping up to the plate to produce ventilators, when many naysayers only think the state should be involved.
In his view, “Only a robust private sector free from government regulation will be able to pull the American economy out of the impending recession when this crisis is over.”
Kobach gets it.
The former Kansas Secretary of State is a certified immigration patriot and understands the value of limited government.
He’s the only choice for America First patriots who believe in constitutional governance.
