Iraqi Shiite supporters break into US embassy compound in Baghdad

An angry mob of Iraqi Shiite militia supporters broke into the US embassy in Baghdad on Tuesday after smashing a door and setting fire to the reception area near the parking lot.  Reporters saw flames rising from the compound and heard gunfire. At least three US soldiers were posted on the roof of the main building with guns. A man on a loudspeaker urged to mob not to enter the compound. The protesters who came from a funeral for the 25 Kataib Hezballah fighters who were killed in a US air strike on Sunday. Outside the building, they set fire to the three trailers used by security guards. No one was reportedly hurt in the rampage. The ambassador and senior staff were evacuated earlier. Hours after the outbreak 30 Iraqi soldiers arrived in armored vehicles and used tear gas against the rioters. Some 20 protesters were affected.

      Thank you for correcting the f o o l Ali! If the US wanted to steal Iraq’s money, it would have commandeered all the oil Iraq produces to pay for Operation Desert Storm. Instead, the US gave Iraq people their oil to sell on the free market and gave Iraqis the right to vote for their government. Quite a novel idea for a f o o l like Ali who blames the US – Iraq’s liberator for its Iran problem.

      Israel it looks like will pay for it ; And USA was warned to leave Iraq and all ME , since this time around they could be reminded of the fight in Somalia, where only 3 people of military American personnel left alive. Of course it was done with the help of Canadian minister Collonet , that left all his 80 airborne to die in Africa;
      Remember Matheson story –he and 1 more of his friends came back to England and actually killed everyone irrelevant , after loosing their group in Africa. Interesting what Americans and Israelis think , that there is no end to everything they do ? Peace needed , or you will all disappear together with Debka.

    A half dozen claymore “welcome mats” would have solved that problem.

    very astonished BUT ONLY ISRAEL CAN PROTECT US AGAINST IRAN AND SHIITES MILITIAS. TRUMP AND WITH ITS MILITARIES ARE SO IMPOTENTS. THEY PREFERE TALKS AND TALKS.
    TRUMP DOES NO REALISE THAT US IS A SUPERPOWER.
    TRUMP FAILED TO READ REAGAN MEMOS WHEN HE DESTROYED IRANIANS NAVY IN 1980S
    US NEEDS AREAL PRESIDENT LIKE THE BUSHS AND CLINTON THEY DID NOT HESITATE TO STRIKE US ENEMIES AT THEIR TIME. I DONT KNOW WHAT THAT COWARD TRUMP DOES STILL AT THE WHITE HOUSE… SO INCOMPETENT HE IGNORES WHAT HAS THE STRATEGIC IMPORTANCE FOR US IN THAT REGION OR EVRYWHEE THROUGH THE WORLD . HE TWEETS TO MUCH AND IGNORE WHAT IS REAL . HE MUST DO SOMETHING ABOUT IRAN AND IRAQ POWER.
    FOR IRAQ POWER US SHOUD TO GIVE POWER TO KURDS WITH SUNNITES AND EXCLUDE SHIITES LIKE AT SADDAM TIME. FOR IRAN US SHOULD DESTROY ALL THE IRAN ECONOMIC INFRASTRUCTURE ALL ITS ARMIES . AND CONQUER ALL WHAT I CALL A RICH IRAN WITH OIL LET THE USELESS IRAN TO THE IRANIANS AFTER THE WORLD IS BUILD LIKE THAT. NOW TURKEY HAS MODIFIED ITS BORDERS WITH SYRIA RUSSIA DIDS THE SAME CHINA DID THE SAME AND WHY NOT FOR US . ONLY THE FORCE GUIDE THE WORLD

    This is NOT Jimmy Carter’s presidency. The US will not have 440 hostages taken by Iran again, as the revolutionaries did in Tehran in 1979

    This is NOT obama’s presidency when the f-o-o-l loaded pallets of gold and cash on an airplane in the middle of the night, landed in Tehran and gave the Mullahs money to finance their terrorism worldwide.

    This is President Trump’s presidency. Iran will taste the bitter fruits of its hegemony in short order, and the dumb mullahs will gag on the aftertaste.

    When US had a war with Germany, Japan and Korea it did not steal from them. On the contrary it helped them develop into become strong economy as allies. Iran is not a friend to Iraq. Iran has Imperial ambitions and it implements it using other nations resources (people, money, land, economy, stability, wellbeing etc….). Iran avoids war on its territories using minimum of its forces……… wise up guys especially Iraqis and Lebanese Iran is a friend worse than enemy. Iran is enslaving both Iraqis and Lebanese.
