“They hid”: Ordinary Americans react to a video from a military base after an Iranian bombardment


The American media continues to discuss the consequences of the Iranian missile attack on US military bases in Iraq. The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps launched rocket attacks on Ain al-Assad base and a base located in the north of the country, not far from Kurdish Erbil. Today in the morning summary News on the "Military Review" there was a material, which described the aftermath of a missile strike and the fact that many US military were forced to wait for the strike, with a bitter irony of fate, in Saddam Hussein’s bunker.


These facts disturbed ordinary Americans who learned about the incident from media reports. The mood of American citizens who have learned this information looks different: from expressing a bitter resentment to a truly panicky one. Many urge Trump to "not leave this unanswered and act as harshly as possible." Some users also got the American military itself.

Here are a few comments on the CNN news service video about the consequences of Iran’s attacks on Ain al-Assad US military base in Iraq.

The Ancient Truth:

And what are they (the US military) doing there? Still looking for Iraqiweapon of mass destruction "?

Guy Barwood:

It is interesting to see how our troops react when they get something more powerful than RPGs.

Robert Lodge:

The irony is that we are forced to use the bunkers that were built to protect against our missiles.

Andrew Breeding:

Tell the truth! Wasn’t any of our soldiers injured?

Samantha W:

They were hiding in a hole ... Hmm ...

Brendan Hall:

It seems that all this was done on purpose - for filming.

    But in Hollywood, they are brave when the world is saved from someone who will never attack.

                Actually, this is normal when personnel are waiting for an air attack or missile attack, by definition they can’t do anything and there was no enemy attack. And the fact that it was scary was also normal, not normal if it weren’t.

          Compare the damage shown and the price of missile defense required to intercept 35 Iranian missiles. I think even intercepting one missile would cost much more than damage. That would be on the basis of a series of aircraft or something else valuable. And not a bunch of advisers in the bunker. That would be questions

              Of course, what they had at the base they knew very well before the strike. We note no rows of burnt planes, huge explosions of ammunition depots, mountains of burnt military equipment, we do not see. Only a couple of cheap buildings are damaged and a little track spoiled

                And if the strike was on a different base and how did they know where the strike would be, and were so sure of that? There are many questions, we are presented with a performance.

                  So ballet rockets have an extremely predictable trajectory and where it was flying.
                  Plus, as has long been known, they were instructed in it even 3,5 hours before the attack. Since Iran had previously informed Iraq of the attack, and that leaked all the US info.

      The main blow is reputational, but it could protect the air defense from it! Maybe they were just afraid to advertise their air defense forces? Then they would have to make excuses why the percentage of interception is so small!

    Now assess the damage that ingenious mattresses have inflicted on the reputation of their air defense systems. They began to doubt their effectiveness even earlier, after the Hussites burned the Saudi oil industry, and now even more so. And there weren’t 35 missiles there. It seems like only 13 pieces were called.

    “There were helicopters torn in half ...”

    The Danish television channel TV 2 showed an interview with Sergeant John, who was hiding in a bunker during a missile attack on this base. (source: https://nyheder.tv2.dk/udland/2020-01-10-dansk-soldat-efter-iransk-angreb-jeg-foelte-mig-magtesloes)


    Quotes:
    "... It was terrible. This cannot be described, and this should not be experienced. We could not do anything, we just had to accept what was happening ...."

    "... The first wave suddenly began. Nine rockets - one ton each. It cannot be described. I have never experienced anything like it, and I hope that I will never experience it again ..."

    "... Danish soldiers reacted differently -" Some told jokes to defend themselves psychologically. Some clung to each other. And someone cried, "says the Danish sergeant ..."


    At the end of the attack, these soldiers were taken to a safe place in Kuwait, where they felt relieved by playing cards and communicating via video ... Well, there’s nothing to comment on, everything is said.

    Here's the translation into Russian: https://rossaprimavera.ru/news/7858717f

    When you have to hide, the soldiers hide where they have to. It would be utterly stupid to sit open and wait for it to arrive.

      It is necessary to go under fire at least once to understand what it is about.
      The bulk of the members of the forum howled sirens did not hear a real combat air alert, not to mention participation in hostilities.

    All the local disputes, which is more expensive: the interception by missile defense system of missiles or the base building, do not make sense ...
    Just talking about it after the fact is easy, already knowing the results of the hit ....
    And try to guess where the missiles will go when they are already flying ...
    So guess what is cheaper ... hi

    These “soldiers”, like their citizens, are brought up by their own state in the spirit that they have no equal and that no one will dare to answer these peddlers of dermocracy. So they don’t understand how this can be done with missiles and at their bases.

    The Americans have a big problem, they never fought a defensive war, so such a panic. Although Our drying over destroyers, at least any one at their base, especially in another country, is Panic! And if this happens in the United States - It will be a SHOCK!

      Ie when Japan attacked the United States in 1941, it was an offensive war for the United States?

    but where is their vaunted missile defense system, why didn’t it work?

    The missile defense operators were in the same bunker similarly.

    If you believe the consequences of the story with "Cook" and "Khibiny", then how many brave warriors are now laid off?

    Well done Iranians. It is so filigree to explain to these warriors what their vaunted power is worth. Now they will go to the toilet looking around. This is not three hundred years of history, but three thousand years.

      These are unlikely to be Iranians. Yes, and, in general, was there a blow? The Iranians have already hit so that the Americans have no victims, as well as a reason for the war. They made a noise, and that's enough. Very similar to the information operation of the Americans. I wonder what Iran will say about these "attacks".

        So, Iran has already said that on 09.01.2020/80/200, the commander of the IRF of the IRGC of Iran, General Hajizadeh, said that the United States concealed its losses as a result of a missile attack by the base - 10 dead and XNUMX wounded US troops. Details from Anna News (first XNUMX minutes of the video):

    Hiding during shelling is normal. Now, several American "veterans" will tell young recruits how to behave during shelling. Their stories will be perceived as "stories" ...

    For those who want to strike at Iran, I would advise you to answer the question: Are you ready for the bombings in the United States and the death of Americans, how do women and children die in Iraq and Syria?
