Pompeo on secret trip to US Ain al Assad Airbase in Iraq

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo arrived at the US airbase of Ain al-Assad in Iraq’s Anbar province on Saturday, according to the Iraqi Kurdistan Rudaw TV. DEBKAfile reports that Pompeo came from consultations in Washington on how to respond to the pro-Iranian militia rocket attack a day earlier on the US K-1 base near Kirkuk. An American civilian was killed in that attack and 4 US soldiers injured. Security has since been boosted substantially at the Al-Assad base. There has been no word on the potential American response to the attack.

      If USA continues the present way – her days as a superpower are numbered…
      A superpower – when attacked – will wipe out the attacker, no stupid playing around + empty words.
      If not, its not much longer a superpower…
      Everbody on earth KNOWS that iran is a terror-nation, spreading terror worldwide, threatening other nations with extinction.
      If a superpower like USA is afraid to fight a terror- state like iran, its
      days as superpower (at best ) are numbered !

        If everyone on earth knows that Iran is terrorists nation as you claim, then why the world finds the US the biggest threat to world peace when polled beating both Iran and North Korea for the 1st spot?

    Operation Knockout Punch is about to begin. Someone should ask Mike Pompeo to give me a call and I will do my best to explain how to accomplish this mission. It starts with asking HaShem for help which He will certainly provide us.

    It reminds me of what happen when Israel was formed with Palestine. The Arabs Nations demanding Palestinians become Exiles then Arabs Egypt, Jordan, & Syria United to Attack Israel with backing from Gulf States. Iran & Turkey sat it out. Now Arabia, Jordan & Egypt Accept Israel Right to Exist! Kurdistan will due in Iran & Change Iraq! But Kurds must be Armed to the Teeth & Trained On Weapons Being Denied them for Decades!
