"Sleepy Joe Biden awaits third day confirmation": American readers react to a missile attack on a US base in Iraq

58

The administration of Joseph Biden reacted to the news that a missile strike was launched on a US military facility in the Iraqi city of Erbil on Monday.


The strike injured five American citizens (including one soldier) and killed one civilian foreign contractor, according to an update.

US Army Colonel Wayne Marotto, head of US command in northern Iraq:

According to our records, 14 rockets were fired at a base in the city of Erbil in Iraqi Kurdistan late Monday evening. Three of them hit the facility on which our troops are based.

Jen Psaki, White House Press Secretary:

The administration reserves the right to respond at a convenient time for us and in a way that we deem acceptable, but we will first wait to establish who is behind the strike. We are adjusting further steps.

At the same time, it became known that the responsibility for the missile attack on an American military facility was assumed by a little-known Shiite armed group even in Iraq itself, which had never previously been distinguished by such actions.

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken held a telephone conversation with the Iraqi Prime Minister, as well as with the head of the Kurdish administration of northern Iraq, discussing the situation.

The comments of American readers on the Internet about this are interesting:

Geodebasser

President Trump would have struck by now. And sleepy Joe has been waiting for confirmation for the third day and thinks who to give money to so that they don't do this anymore.

McCave

President Biden! They test your character. Show determination!

Mike the independent

I hope the final solution will be just this: the withdrawal of all American soldiers from this hole.

Recall that earlier Joe Biden suspended the withdrawal of troops from Iraq.

          It’s a little embarrassing that the country of Iraq has been above US oil reserves for thousands of years. In general, all the oil on the planet belongs to the United States, as does the entire Space.

      They don't know themselves. Hussein was hanged (a shameful death for a Muslim), and then the ideas ran out. From the remnants of the Iraqi army and the Security Council, ISIS emerged, which almost devoured the entire Middle East ... There is nothing to say, skillful leaders ...

        Skillful, of course.
        It is a great art to bring 500 million euros in cash to Mosul, and then instruct the officers (trained by Americans) of the 36th garrison to flee.
        The privates, looking at the commanders, simply fled.
        The ISIS forces that entered (much smaller in number) received everything at once: both money and weapons.
        Coincidence? I do not think. hi

        Everything there is thought out to the smallest detail, in the same Syria, the United States, together with ISIS, fought against Assad, and quite successfully until Russia intervened. All this chaos is very well thought out, and money is dripping into the US budget.

    Joe has been waiting for confirmation for the third day and thinks who to give money toso they don't do that again.
    American commentary that is close to the truth. A small, unknown group probably took responsibility for making it known, and the Americans are pondering what to do - to raze the floor of Iraq, or maybe it would be better to strike at Syria (Assad)? Neither one nor the other will give an effect, some costs. Therefore, it is better to give money, but it is not yet clear to whom.
