    Well, not one bullet to the Russian base, and so three missiles are not bad, but you can do more, but in general, where is the American omnipotent air defense or they built an "impenetrable kumpol" for Israel, but don't care about their soldiers; although who needs these niggas Latinos and Indians who serve in the US army, Jews don't care

    They imitate themselves - they justify their presence.

    Some strange shelling ... minimum damage, no casualties ... purely a performance.

    The most striking thing is that not all of the Americans' bases have an air defense system, although they are located in areas that are far from calm

    This is the base in the desert, the main thing that prevails there is exactly empty space. Three missiles, according to the theory of probability, were likely to hit the "parade ground" or some kind of utility shed. But in this case, they were lucky, they got into ammunition. There are most likely victims (it is not written that no, "not reported"), although such an intermediate warehouse should stand more or less separately, someone should at least protect them.

    The unrequited strikes on American bases in the winter of 2020 became an indicator of the decline of the United States. Like, you can beat without risking an answer.

      These strikes are America's belated response to war crimes and criminal offenses committed around the world.
      Of course, they can serve as a pretext for new attacks from the United States.
      However, you are correct.
      They are now in complete disarray.
      Many people feel it.
      That's why they bite.

    Not for the first time, and certainly not for the last time. But even without being a conspiracy theorist, every time the phrase repeats itself and gives food for thought
    no injuries
    Either the missiles are falling in the wrong place, or someone does not want the withdrawal of American troops from Iraq.

    It is necessary to fire once a week, a good tradition.
