New data on the number of US military casualties at bases in Iraq puzzled public men


The US military announced new data on the number of injured US troops as a result of an Iranian missile attack on US military bases. Recall that the IRGC hit in response to the elimination by the Americans of General Kassem Suleimani. Two US military bases were attacked from Iran.


Initially, the United States stated that there were no casualties and wounded among the US military. Then, after a demonstration of personnel of what remained of the military bases, the Pentagon began to publish information that there were still victims. Until recently, 64 injured troops were reported in the United States.

And now - the next update of data from the US military.

According to the Pentagon press service, 109 US soldiers and officers suffered as a result of Iranian attacks on US bases in Iraq. Most of the victims were diagnosed with concussion. At the same time, it is alleged that 76 of them have already returned to service.

In the US, they answered the question of why the information on the number of victims is constantly changing. The Pentagon says that this is due to the passage of a medical examination by new groups of military personnel. This answer surprised American public figures. They note that if this is so, then it turns out that many US troops, after the Iranians launched a missile strike, continued to carry out their duties without undergoing a physical examination (immediately after the events).

The US was also perplexed by the fact that initially, in an interview with the media, the US military itself at bases in Iraq claimed that "there were no casualties, since everyone had taken refuge in underground bunkers."

        It was a deferred shell-shock since the Vietnam War with the generals. laughing Therefore, reporting on the victims does not hit.

              It is interesting, if the names of the victims are voiced, how many will be Estonian among them?
              laughing
              In general, I believe that the number of victims will increase in direct proportion to the square of the amount of compensation "for injury". The word "freebie" is sweet for all of humanity.

        No, division reproduction is actually a rather slow process.
        Again, take a closer look, the increase in casualties is approximately the same as the division.
        But not everyone could share it. Apparently, part of the virus disappeared. Or "barren" turned out to be.

        And what could be so, the adrenaline was thrown away and did not notice, and then, after a while, the concussion was also cut short. I hit hard with a brush on Monday 26.01.20/29.01/XNUMX and a fracture was discovered on XNUMX/XNUMX. walked for two days and nothing hurt.)))))

        The IRGC hit with a rubber bomb. Still jumping. Here's an explanation for why new victims are emerging. It is interesting by the end of the month there will be a thousand of them or they will run away from this base.

          The nature of these shells comes from a bear disease due to a missile strike by Iran. The attacks of this disease made him bang his head against the wall. As a result, a massive shell-shock. wink

      I think the blame for the allowance to the military for injuries and shell shocks is to blame. It is not difficult to simulate a mild concussion - perhaps a headache, nausea, slight tremors and a treasured recording are ready. Therefore, the American soldier do not be fools at the medical board, all polls were shell-shocked lol

    No one was injured until 109 today and it is not yet known what will happen tomorrow. All this is somehow strange, therefore the American public has questions. Interestingly, how many turned to military psychologists and wrote translation reports?

    but in my opinion the story of the affected media and those close to those who are against Trump are invented. that would change public opinion about what is not answered. they want to deploy this agreement against him. Well, this is nonsense, some shell-shocked and so easy. some kind of imitation.

    As I understand it, Iran makes rockets from pressed cardboard and starts with rocket salt, a kind of hefty firecracker, shatterproof, 109 concussion, and not a single killed or wounded, the Chinese have a lot to learn, their little firecrackers tear off their fingers, they knock out, they even kill, and there is such a fool and absolutely safe

      Deep misconception about the BR SD IRI.
      to attack the military bases of Ain al-Assad and Al-Anbar, Iran (more precisely, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps) used 22 Fateh-313 BRs. Zulfikar and Kiam-1. The missiles were a complete success. They not only showed approximate accuracy, but also bypassed the air defense of both bases, so that the Americans could not intercept any BR.
      It is believed that the Iranians managed to neutralize the missile defense and block the US electronic warfare, while they carried out target designation and control of the BR until the very last moment. That is, they bypassed the Americans also in electronics. At the same time, it is indicated that the “Kiam-1” is equipped with a separable warhead with active radar jamming systems. While one of the blocks flies to the target, the other interferes with the radars or delivers a destructive charge to them. The latter is even more likely. Although, few people know about the true secrets of Iranian rocket launchers.

      BR "Kiam-1 / Qiam-1". ("Scud" / SCUD). Caliber - 880 mm, warhead mass - 746 kg, D up to 800 km on N up to 195 km. That is, through space.
      In some sources, the CVO of the product is not more than 30 m, and the guidance is carried out by the GOS on laser gyroscopes. Among the important features of Kiam-1, the military press mentions its high security against being intercepted by US and Israeli missile defense systems. The body is made using STELS technology!
      OTR "Fateh-313" / Zulfiqar ("Sword of the Prophet") - a product of Iranian manufacture itself. Adopted in 2016. Solid fuel OTR - development of Iranian proper Fateh-110. Caliber 610 mm, monoblock warhead weighing 450 kg, range - 700 km. Homing.
      Analysts concluded that the IRI demonstrated to the Yankees its ability to launch rocket attacks. It was this demonstration that discouraged Trump from "roughly punishing" Iran for a blow to US bases.

    There are consequences of rash statements by businessman Trump. He wanted to smooth out Iran’s response, to reassure everyone around the incident, but as a result, his military were still affected. There are speculations on the same topic. But, understanding what hypocritical and unprincipled authorities in the USA are, who for the votes of electors can easily slap nuclear weapons over Korea or Iran over missiles, there is nothing to be surprised at.

    Democrats have spoiled the impeachment of Trump, now their media and sympathizers are warming up the story with Iran as they can, trying to bring it to a new impeachment: they say Trump killed his soldiers inactive when the Iranians hit them with rockets.

    They know that the missile attack on U.S. bases was staged, that the Iranians warned the U.S. through the Iraqis about the impending attack, that Trump had arranged all this to distract attention from his persecution by the Democrats, but the demo engine in the U.S. will now only be stopped by a civil war.

    The thing is most likely in insurance and obtaining benefits and payments for "injury". These 109 soldiers suddenly became richer. But no one guarantees that the number of "victims" will not increase.

    Mattresses escalate the situation, increasing the number of allegedly "injured" during a missile strike. Most likely there are tens of times less victims. In general, I think if we take the ratio of killed / wounded, then with 106 victims there should have been at least 5 killed.
