Pentagon announces Iran’s rocket attack hit

The number of US troops who were shell-shocked by Iran’s missile attack on US military bases in Iraq rose to 50. This was stated by Pentagon spokesman Thomas Campbell.


According to Campbell, the number of troops in the US Army who received shell shock during a missile strike by Iran has reached 50 today. Of these, 31 servicemen received assistance in Iraq and have already begun to serve, 18 people had to be evacuated to Germany, where they will be provided with all appropriate medical care.

16 new servicemen were diagnosed with brain injuries. (...) To date, 50 US troops have received head injuries

- he said.

Earlier, US President Donald Trump said that Iran’s missile attack on US military bases did not affect the US military, who allegedly received no damage at all. Trump then admitted the presence of shell shock, but claimed that this was a minor injury.

The Pentagon also initially announced the absence of victims, then recognized the presence of injuries in 11 military personnel, later their number increased to 34. It is possible that the figure 50 in the Pentagon message is also not final.

On the night of January 8, Iran launched several airstrikes on the US military base Al-Assad, located in Iraq. This was in response to the assassination of the commander of the Iranian unit of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, Kassem Suleimani.

        Knowing in advance about the blow, having evacuated the equipment, they themselves could not even competently take cover. I'm not talking about air defense cover. This is how much you need to be self-confident ?!

          They simply weren’t scared ... they never fought, or rather they already forgot, with a serious adversary.

          Knowing that a missile strike would be launched, the mattresses were waiting for the start of a ground operation by the Shaabists, and therefore a part of the military unit was left to guard the base perimeter. So they came under the distribution. If the missiles came along the perimeter, not into the depths of the base, then there would be more victims. Although these figures of 50 people most likely do not reflect reality. according to the Iranians, there are at least 80 of them. Considering that not so much time has passed from “no casualties” to “there are 50 victims”, it becomes difficult for mattresses to hide the real picture, and Iranians are most likely closer to the truth.

        There may be a question in insurance in order to get the loot at once all shell-shocked, but this is not a small loot. In America, if a car drove into the ass, the front driver immediately had an attack, even if there were no dents. fellow

        And they don’t shoot at Israel, Iraq, for example, shot and missiles from it reached Israel. Once a tornado was struck on the territory of Israel, or it was the Syrians, though they lost 1 tornado. Saudi Arabia, the Iranians are bombing, but for some reason Israel is not, but Israel is closer, or they are not afraid or Russian.

      This is 90% true - I think so. By the way, many of them who have stayed in the Middle East for a certain period of time, upon arrival home, immediately find a bunch of sores, including mental disorders, and require appropriate treatment from the budget. In general, the picture is not new, and it is clear that many want to receive some preferences for the future. So this is just a business - I agree with that.

      But doubts begin to torment about this. The corpses were most likely, but then it is necessary to fight with Iran. But Trump before the election can not understand this. By the way, 1 already somehow managed to die in an "accident" in Iraq. Perhaps now they will write off under non-combat losses, or they will organize mass shooting at some base.

          It’s hard to believe that an American, a military man, moves around Iraq, alone, in a passenger car. And also flew out of the road and rolled over. Anything happens of course, but somehow it smells bad in this situation.

    Everything is correct. Trump did not lie. The fact is that irritable bowel syndrome due to emotional experiences develops gradually. However, after a couple of weeks, the patient develops diarrhea. The gentle souls of the American military could not bear the roar of the explosions, although they were in hiding. Now, peace, best in sanatorium conditions, a strict diet, nothing sharp, nothing salty, daily classes with a psychotherapist, and there, you look, they will write it off.

      Vasyan1971 (Vasily): Who to believe now?

      Greetings, Vasily hi
      Not a lot of the topic. Before the revolution, Terek Cossacks had a custom. When daggers were handed to the seven-year-old Cossacks at the church, they kissed them and uttered a peculiar oath of the so-called. "crest charter":
      I do not believe in anyone except our God
      I am not afraid of anything but the wrath of our God
      I ask nothing but the mercy of our God
      In the name of the Father and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen

      After the revolution, in countless lags, criminals “adapted” this charter for themselves: “Do not believe, do not be afraid, do not ask”

    According to Campbell, the number of troops in the US Army who received shell shock during a missile strike by Iran has reached 50 today. Of these, 31 servicemen received assistance in Iraq and have already begun to serve, 18 people had to be evacuated to Germany, where they will be provided with all appropriate medical care.

    "Dead souls", postscripts or banal lack of knowledge on mathematics arithmetic in the US military? 31 + 18 = 49, but not 50. Or one doctor’s help is no longer needed, they will send him home in zinc.

    Well, the laughter and sin over these USs with Israel .. You have notably spoiled the gentlemen (you were afraid in BV yourself) and this is not forgiven, just like that ..
    Iran behaved very sensibly (I’m sure that Russian intelligence services and analysts couldn’t do without it) ..
    Something often your military transporters began to fall with senior CIA experts, etc.
    And the most interesting thing is that ALL the "world media", as if on command, forgot about the murder of the general and the second person in power ..

    And remember how many years Russia has been hammering with these Boeing and how many sanctions have been introduced .. This time, this template did not pass. Respond for everything and everyone!
