It is alleged that 3 bases has been hit. IF any US soldier is killed in these attacks, I strongly fear the next action Trump might take.

Just imagine taking out a fully fledged legitimate army general of a sovereign country because of alleged killing of a US contractor.

Iran design the launching of the Rockets Knockouts to ensure that no US personal were hit....am even sure they gave the US advance notice.

It was launched in the night when everyone was sleeping to limit human exposure and the casualties counts to US after Iran fired more than a dozen Knockouts into 3 US bases is zero.

Iran did this to safe face at home that, see....we retaliated....they know US is not going to response if their are no casualties...Remember Iran downed US drone a few months ago and since there were no casualties, the US let it go.

No one want war, including the US....but all these are just games by both sides and for the US defense contractors to sell their stockpiles of weapons.

Over 30 US soldiers dead already. Trump not addressing the nation tonight.

Stocks lost 300 points instantly.

Oil prices went up swiftly.

Just glued to Twitter and waiting for Trump's tweet

I ain't sleeping till I get his tweet.

Now, who lied? Iran didn't want the smoke. Good for everyone, no more war, at least for now.

For all its knowledge and wisdom, America continues to create more terrorists and enemies for itself.
It's not a matter of who is more powerful, its a matter of who is wrong and in this case America was wrong for starting this mess.
As for those who thinks it does not concern Nigeria, just see what Obama has turned Libya to, and how the anarchy in Libya had extended to the Sahel region including Nigeria.
God save us all

You are very thoughtful.

Other presidents had the option to dispatch Soleimani, but they forewent it because US already had Iran in a good place.

Mr. Impeached could not seat still because new impeachment evidence against him was coming to light by the hour, so he went to do what he predicted in 2011 that Obama would do to get re-elected: declare war on Iran.

Iran is three times bigger than Iraq, and US spent more than a decade warring Iraq. Anyone who says It'll be easy to wipe out Iran must be eating a plate of half-fried akara with a can of Black Bullet.
You are so outdated and uninformed. If you use the old status of US in war times judge their ability now you better go back to school. Iran is NO MATCH one bit for US.

I expect Trump to react within the next 24 hours. He had promised to hit Iran so hard and fast should they retaliate. But that will be very foolish of him. Americans have more to lose if this crisis escalates beyond this.

Since there's no casualty, no American life was lost, I expect Trump not to strike back and de escalate this conflict. It's going to do the world a whole lot of good and Americans importantly.

NB: Putin might have just saved us from WWIII
All American allies are pissed with Trump because he didn't notify them before attacking Soleimani, China are now tactically backing Russian, and Russia is Iran's biggest ally.

It's a win win for Iran IMO
You just sit and think things will play out like you want? Prove your claims of China and Russia now.

Hmmmm


Some people think Iran will only be the ones with casualties?

US go hear am.

This is a war propelled by so many things, revenge, religion, etc.

Iranians so much loved the man that was openly assassinated. If they tell trump now to drop the evidence that the man killed is a terrorist, will he?

Trump perceived him as a terrorist and killed him, they have set a precedence that any citizen or government official of any country can be labeled anything and be killed anywhere in the world. because the world kept quiet to this. I am not saying that he is not a terrorist. Neither am I saying that Iran will win US. But we know US involvement in so many countries like Libya and other countries.just recently, we are hearing about their involvement in stopping the annihilating Boko Haram.


Iran cannot just go to war with US, ee get reason, ee get wetin de give them moral.

Which equipment and men did they move.

I wonder where you guys get info from.


If you weren't keenly following the events in Iraq, I was because I'm involved in the financial markets.

A day before Iran's response, there's a news of an article from the U.S. military in Iraq informing the Iraq's PM of their troop's movements. The media initially misinterpreted it that the US was withdrawing their troops from Iraq, but Pentagon came out to clarify that it's only precautionary movement of their troops in anticipation of Iran's response.

How many times are we going to say this?
Al-Assad BAse is in iraq, it is a US Airbase where American troops are HOUSED! The idea was to re-inforce the Iraqi not to chicken-out fo sending the american away, seeing that the americans have said they are now 'landlords'.

America also killed Iraqi PMF Leader in their attack on iranianSouleimani, at an iraqi Airport! America occupies Iraqi bases and have bene told to move out and they said "We are not going anywhere"!
Which one is more of a violation of Iraqi sovereingty?

well said but, the Iraqis will be the victim of the proxy war that's by point

Didn't US back up this militias at some point?

Militias you see backed up by Nations

This same guy killed fought with US soldiers against ISIS.
No sentiment, this is international politics bro, Iran and the US are not allies. Recall that the Soviet was an ally of Nazi Germany before the world war 2, even they were still in alliance with the Nazis when they invaded Poland. All hell only broke loose when Hitler invaded Stalingrad

US will pay dearly for this folly. Killing a government official OPENLY (Not in a war theatre) and admitting to it, is the most foolish thing that has been done since world warII.

What Trump had effectively done by Killing Soleimani is that he has established that in this war of attrition between nations killing foreign diplomats is a fair game.

I repeat, going after a diplomat and killing him publicly is a no-no and I believe the US will regret this action, and this may hurt trumps chance of reelection. Iran is no pushover!!


There is no nation unearth much less I'll trained and equipped Iran that can't even identify an aircraft that left their very own airport in less than thirty minutes and had to bring it down


Iran is not just a pushover but a walk in the park.

Like Hilary Clinton once said: America will erase Iran in any war confrontation, any time any day.


The fifth-largest navy on earth put together is not equal to the size of the us navy alone.

You can google that and it is the navy that is needed the most in of country battles before the airforce
