US soldiers are turning into targets at US foreign bases due to the policies of their own authorities

48

Over the past decade, it has been believed that the sheer number of US military bases around the world is an undeniable factor in US advantage in protecting its interests. And it was hard to argue with this thesis. US military contingents in Europe, the Middle East, East and Southeast Asia, and Africa and the Pacific region are almost a total US military advantage almost everywhere.


At the end of 2019, the number of military bases and other U.S. military and dual-use facilities in the world was approaching 850: from Afghanistan to Japan, from Kosovo to Poland, from Kuwait to Brazil.

But in the light of recent events, it turns out that the US military outside the United States is actually becoming hostages of the foreign policy of its own authorities. The idea came to President Trump to strike a car with Iranian general Kassem Suleimani - overnight, American soldiers in Iraq turned into a target for Iranian missiles. They attacked immediately two US military bases on the territory of this country. And no means of air defense did not prevent the majority of missiles launched by divisions of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps from achieving their intended goals.

If the conflict is not settled on this, then, quite possibly, the American military, equipment and military infrastructure in Yemen, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Libya, and other countries of the Middle East will appear as targets. Moreover, Iran itself legitimized such attacks, in response to US actions, recognizing the Pentagon and the American army as terrorist organizations.

And today, no military expert will undertake to predict how many victims this confrontation could lead to, which was actually generated by the gamble of the American authorities that blew up a region that was already engulfed in flames of military conflicts.

      Russia needs to run in our Torahs and Shells on the Tomahawks. It is necessary to agree with Iran and transfer several divisions. If they show themselves well at real facilities, then the credibility of our air defense will grow to heaven.

    Take, there will be no transcendental number of US victims, 5-10 people. Iran does not need war. The US is not needed. It was necessary to substitute Trump, which is done, but he will not behave.

      So he already had a fuss when he heeded the advice of his secretary of state and the Pentagon scumbags. Now the main thing is that he would be smart enough not to unwind the spiral of military confrontation. In any case, as a result of their adventure, the mattresses were scorched in full and they will hiccup for a long time.

        Due to the fact that they will be at war with Iran, debts in Europe and other countries, even in the USA themselves, will not be written off by anyone.

          After WWI, the United States changed from a debtor to a creditor.
          One of the possible short-term consequences of escalating the situation in BV will be "money flight to a safe haven" - the US Treasury.

              Apparently, at the moment, the United States has no other options besides direct intervention, to sway the situation so that money would flow to them. And the unleashing of a "small victorious war" (tm) will not bring small buns to the US military-industrial complex. Most likely they counted the buns, now they are specifying the size of the eventual splash, and if the balance becomes tied (especially if it goes beyond those notorious 300%), they will go horns forward ... Wait and see ...

      All the same, this missile strike fell into the empty. The mountain gave birth to a mouse. Such steel eggs are suitable for scrap. All this would make some sense if Iran had nuclear weapons. Even if a missile strike were delivered by conventional warheads, the stripes would have a real shock. Maybe then they would have thought it over, and this is a blow to the empty tank. Iranians in response to this attack with General Sulemani need to respond by resuming the nuclear program. Moreover, they were and will be under sanctions anyway, and therefore there is nothing to lose, but nuclear weapons to ensure their own security will not be in the way. But Iran itself said that the nuclear program will not be renewed. The Qur'an interferes. So where are the steel eggs? Rather, they have North Korea!

        Even if you really hit the void near the bases, it’s a bell about determination, if you don’t fall down, beat the next time exactly on target. Warning from Iran that they will go to the end. The next move for the mattresses, I suppose that the Americans will wash off to the Saudis and from there they will steer the ishill in the Afghan direction.

      And not only in Iraq. Iran rocketed at US bases set a precedent. Even if the United States responds, attacks on US bases will go both from the air and from the ground, and all those who hate the United States in the Middle East and not only Iranians will join it.

    The Americans played out with their foreign policy!
    A monkey with a grenade pulled out a check ...
    True, this is a hefty monkey, almost King Kong.
    But somehow this monster was already lowered in Vietnam.
    Iran may have few missiles. Winged and ballistic.
    But he has a worse weapon.
    Thousands and thousands of Shiite fanatics, ready to die for their ideas on the orders of the Ayatollah.
    Moreover, the Yankees can meet this threat on their territory ...
