US Embassy in Iraq stormed, Trump blames Iran, Iran denies it

Iraqi Shiite militiamen and their supporters broke into the U.S. Embassy compound in Baghdad on Tuesday. They smashed the door and set fire to a reception area. It is reported they were reacting to deadly U.S. airstrikes targeting the Iran-backed militia. U.S. President Trump accused Iran of ’orchestrating’ the attack and said it would be ’held fully responsible’. Iran denied any involvement.

Sounds like we are unwanted. We should leave. Stop foreign intervention.

Iran sends protesters to violate a US embassy. USA: This seems oddly familiar and feels me with a murderous rage. We may need to look at dismantling Hezbollah as much as possible in the region.

The US removed the Sunni minority from power grip in Iraq. This allowed Shiites to win in the elections, after which Iraq became a satrapy of Iran. This is Iran-organized march - after we destroyed some of their Iraqi Hezbollah rocket depots - after they bombed our base involving casualties and injuries.

Fortunately, Trump doesn't have Carte Blanche to start a war. Oh wait... We stopped demanding congressional declaration of war decades ago.

An attack on a US Embassy should be considered a declaration of war. Just bomb Tehran and watch the entire regime collapse. They are already dealing with protestors.

Tear gas...? Wounded...? This sounds like a restrained response. Now if any other president were in office, we’d be declaring war... but if any other president were in office, we’d already be at war... “We came, we saw, he died (cackle)” - Former Secretay of State Hillary “I’m in it for the money” Clinton.

It's funny coming from an illiterate orange buffoon to throw random accusations to Iranians when HE spent the past 3 years throwing random derogatory comments on every single minority on the planet. Qui sème le vent, récolte la tempête.

We can’t even stop crazy socialists from setting universities and Portland on fire and doing much the same. No surprise people do the same in other countries.

Because not everyone there is Moslem and the minorities there have genocides when not protected. I get your point of leaving the region as a regular force like in Europe or East Asia, I do want to draw down but I know currently if we do then regimes we are containing for good reasons ( governments of N Korea, China, Russia, Iran, most Arab countries, Pakistan’s deep state, etc) because they wish to harm others for expansion/wealth/resources and need to be checked early and often to avoid a much more costly world war.
