The American embassy in Baghdad has been targeted with rocket attacks again.
Three rockets slammed into the US embassy in Iraq’s capital on Sunday in the first direct hit reported after months of close calls, as thousands of protesters kept up anti-government sit-ins across the country.
The attack marked a dangerous escalation in the spree of rocket attacks in recent months that have targeted the embassy or Iraqi military bases where American troops are deployed.
None of the attacks has been claimed but Washington has repeatedly blamed Iran-backed military factions in Iraq.
On Sunday, one rocket hit an embassy cafeteria at dinner time while two others landed nearby, a security source told AFP.
A senior Iraqi official told AFP at least one person was wounded, but it was not immediately clear how serious the injuries were and whether the person was an American national or an Iraqi staff member working at the mission.
It is fairly clear that the Iraqi people don’t want an American presence in their country any longer. There were massive protests the other day and now we see another slew of rocket attacks targeting the American embassy.
I think it is time that we leave.
Donald Trump should immediately ask permission from the Israeli government and their neocon underlings to order an immediate withdrawal.
Of course, Kobe Bryant died, so that is a much more important news story we should be focused in on. Why give a fuck about this when a famous Negro baller died?
