Rockets Fall Near US Embassy In Baghdad Injuring Five As World War 3 Fears Mount by Dannybammz: 3:06am On Jan 05, 2020
The rockets fell in the Iraqi capital's heavily fortified Green Zone which houses government buildings and foreign missions a day after the US ordered the execution of top Iranian General Qassem Soleimani


Several rockets targeting Celebration Square and the Jadriya area in Baghdad, and the Balad air base in Salahuddin province, with no loss of life. Further details to come," the Iraqi military said in a statement.

There are currently not believed to be any deaths.


It comes a day after Donald Trump ordered the drone execution of top Iranian General Qassem Soleimani at Baghdad Airport.

After his death, the country's supreme leader Ali Khamenei sparked fears of war as he announced revenge, adding: "I and the government and the nation of Iran strongly condemn this American crime."

The phrase "World War 3" began trending on Twitter and searches for the same sentence also spiked on Google within hours of the air strike in Iraq.

So Iran plans using rockets to take revenge on the US?



Whoever cares for Iran should advise her to apply wisdom. It's ok to rant, but don't get carried away thinking you'can keep up hit for hit with America. They better just rant and let it slide, for their own sake.


>>Modified: For those who quoted me saying Russia and China will give aid or step forward to assist Iran, it seems they've not checked the military strength of the United States of America. Russia is the only country with more nukes than America, and the difference is insignificant(they both possess over 6,000 nukes), but America has more nuke carriers(bomber jets, warships, aircraft carriers, army bases in over 10 countries). The budget allotted to defence in America is more than the combined budgets of Russia, China, and North Korea. America has Britain, Israel, India, and other NATO countries as her allies. India alone is enough to neutralise whatever military contribution China plans, or at least minimise it. Britain can pretty well settle the score with Russia.

America has high stakes both home and away. they know war wouldn't be good for them. But America is like David who will account for the lives of every sheep in his flock. Kill one America and they'll even the score. That terrorist deserves what he got. If Iran wants to retaliate, they better reconsider the repercussion.

A country where the lives of citizens count is truly a God own country.

It's a mistake to push a man to violence when violence is what he has dedicated his life to perfecting. Iran doesn't know their mates.

Iran should thread with caution. They shouldn’t let fake support from other countries push them to war with the United States. Because in the end, they will be left alone. They will lose in all areas.

Nothing to gain, just terrorism trickling down to the subsaharan region. This government does not understand simple economics.

Clear throat, abeg no waste innocent souls. Let there be peace between Iran and US. Casualties of war are mostly women and children who never participate in the real war. I say NO to blood.

Burp!

What World War 3

Look at the following

Iran: We have identified 35 targets

USA: We will strike 52 positions in Iran if...

You can see that both of them are about to disappoint again- particularly Iran. Nonsense. sad

I am not going to lose all hope yet though.

Don't just be too sure.. Very soon they will draw empathy or wipe it up from powerful anti-US nations then you know what that means.
Leaders are meant to act more responsibly... World needs peace not wars
