New Rocket Attack Targeted U.S. Troops In Baghdad International Airport

Late on August 14, a new rocket attack targeted Baghdad International Airport in the outskirts of the Iraqi capital, according to several sources.

Iraqi Security Media Cell said in an statement that three “Katyusha” rockets were launched at a U.S. military base within the airport. The rockets reportedly fell in the vicinity of the base.

“No significant losses [were sustained],” the statement reads.

The U.S.-led coalition has not commented on the attack, thus far. In most cases, the coalition admits its losses within 24 hours.

A few hours prior to the rocket attack, Usbat al-Tha’ireen (UT) a new Iranian-affiliated armed group, shared a phrase from Quran, reading: “So leave them alone till they meet their Day, in which they will sink into a fainting [from horror],” on its Telegram Channel. This indicated that the group may be behind the attack.

Newly-founded Shiite groups increased their attacks on U.S. troops in the last few months. Some of these groups are now threatening with a more serious escalation.

The U.S. believe that Kata’ib Hezbollah (KH) was behind some of the recent attacks. The new groups, like UT, may be a front for KH, or receiving support from it.

Language of force, the only language US understands…

Assad must stay

lots of headaches prolly tho hahahahahaha

Zionism = EVIL

$10 billion in Russia weaponry will be delivered to Iran soon or has already being delivered. This includes SU-30, YAK 130, T-90 tanks, S-400 and Bastian SSM. The SU-30 will be assembled in a joint production with Iran. China has already supplied the upgraded J-10. The stupid Americunt arsehole losers will get more than a headache. Just stay tuned :)

Assad must stay

very nice what are your thoughts on the beirut explosion and supposed seizure of 4 iran tankers?

Zionism = EVIL

I will give a honest response based on objective FACTS. The Lebanese port explosion is partly caused by inept and corrupt governments that were imposed by the imperial Sykes-Picot outdated regime. The same cunts like Gemayal, Chamoun, Jumblatt etc still lick Americunt and Zionist arse. The explosives were stock piled in collusion with the Froggy DGSE, CIA and Mossad and the timing of the explosion itself is quite strange as it took place when the Zionist cunts were running shitless scared of Hezbollah and the illegal arms embargo on Iran was expiring. However, the stupid cunts failed again as Sayyed Nasrallah’s speech today clearly stated.

Lebanon and Syria’s demographics are totally changed today and Hezbollah is Lebanon as the Shia are over 80% of the population and even the majority of Sunni and Maronite minorities support Hezbollah’s whose hands are clean and Sayyed Nasrallah, Naim Qassem and Hezbollah leadership are squeaky clean and considered brave, honest and standing up to the Americunts morons and Zionist cowardly cunts. The explosion only strengthened Hezbollah even more.

On the subject of the “ships’, it is total bullshit to deflect from Americunt failures. No Iranian flag ship has been stopped or boarded by anyone. So I would even piss of these types of disinformation, especially by Americunt liars who are facing global humiliation.

Assad must stay

Thanks very interesting sir

Zionism = EVIL

You are welcome my friend. Read Sayyed Nasrallah’s speech on al-Manar and Al-Masdar. Hezbollah’s flag is really flying high. Dr. Zarif was in Beirut for past two days and met with all Hezbollah leadership as well.

Peter Jennings

Certain facts in the case of the Beirut explosion are very suspicious. If the ship was in so bad a shape to begin with, why wasn’t it stopped from leaving other ports? Why the owners just happened to abandon the ship in Beirut? Who’s idea was it to store tons of fireworks along side and then ignore all warnings from the port authority and anyone with a basic grasp of chemistry?

I think there is much more to this story than inept and corrupt government. The isreali apartheid regime is quite fond of bombing Beirut and the regime does like its bombs. Netty even took a childs drawing of one to show off at the UN.


There is far more to the story. There are now videos from Lebanon showing the sound of jets overhead and people pointing them out just before the blast…gone from youtube, but still on other platforms. Also waiting for some expert to explain how AN can explode without an enabler. Plain AN will not explode, only burn. Then there is the massive crater left in solid rock. Since when does an AN explosion (even if enabled; kerosene) vaporize rock? Probably the same way jet fuel vaporized the WTC and caused the building to fall at free-fall speed. So far there is no evidence that AN was still in the building.

It was missiles. One pre from a navy ship and the big one was a mini-nuke, done from a F-16. Source Veterans Today.


I doubt they have taken 4 tankers,if they have better expect some US tankers being taken.


US is having a bad evening they also lost the UN Security council vote on extending Iran arms sanctions!

Zionism = EVIL


Zhang Jun, China’s ambassador to the UN, said in a statement that the result “once again shows that unilateralism receives no support and bullying will fail”.

Tommy Jensen

Everybody wants to go to America, so this is blackmail of America and our values. We cant just let 7 billion people into our country because you envy America and our freedom.

Zionism = EVIL

As I had predicted, even the EU vassals either abstained or supported Iran. The deadbeat resolution faced a historic Sino-Russo VETO anyway, but is quite refreshing to see even the smaller countries reject Americunt isolated arseholes. This is abject humiliation for the stupid Americunts dying like rabid dogs in the streets,

UN Security Council rejects US resolution to extend Iran arms embargo

The resolution needed support from nine of 15 votes to pass. Eleven members abstained, including France, Germany and Britain, while the US and the Dominican Republic were the only “yes” votes. It also confirmed US weakness in the world forum.

The United Nations Security Council has rejected a US resolution to extend an arms embargo on Iran that is due to expire in October, as Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed a summit of world leaders to avoid “confrontation” over an American threat to trigger a return of all UN sanctions on the Islamic Republic. Russia, Iran’s steadfast ally has over $10 billion worth of weapons deals in the pipeline.

Ashok Varma

President Putin was highly critical of US and stood his ground in supporting his Iranian allies. Russia has a history of supporting its allies going back to Korea, Vietnam, Syria and India.


This is the worst humiliation for US in the entire history of UNSC. China totally dominated the meeting and even tiny NATO vassal Belgium withstood great pressure and sided with China and Russia along with Indonesia, Estonia and Vietnam. US is sunk to a Banana Republic status along with occupied Dominican Republic.

Zionism = EVIL

The Chinese put the AmeriCUNTS in their place today, once and for all, now the world knows who in charge. The Chinese ambassador treated the dumbass Americunt bitch with total contempt at the UNSC. The Americunt losers had campaigned for this deadbeat resolution for over 18 months, but even tiny states like Belgium gave the morons the finger.


This is an encouraging news for the world!

Tommy Jensen

This is criminal and unprecedented in human history.

Ashok Varma

US has been totally humiliated at the UNSC and just shows how low its global standing, or lack of it, is now. The Russian and Chinese block is too strong and China’s economic clout now influences the Europeans as well. Indian policy makers are astute and avoided a conflict with China.

Peter Jennings

The US stock market had a meltup the other day. This meltup almost exactly matches the same meltup the stock market had during the first bounce of the great depression. The stock market has so far been following the exact same path as then apparently.

The US seems to be going the electronic and postal route for its next election. I wonder how that will go? with the defund the police syop and the american public separated by their media into two hate camps.

Gold during the last few years has regained its tier one asset status. The metal markets just got smashed because banks want to exit their short positions and reposition themselves for a new gold standard. The US also has flocks of dollar chickens coming home to roost.

It won’t be long now. Get your popcorn.

Bill Rood

Total incompetence that Pompeo’s State Department did not realize ahead of time that it would be such a humiliating defeat. He should resign in disgrace and embarrassment.


The U.S.also believe they sent men to the moon and walked around on it.


Well these days they will have to use Russian rockets. https://media0.giphy.com/media/G1Zu26ae7mZr2/giphy.gif

Three Katyusha rockets were launched at a U.S. military base within the Baghdad International airport which contains lots of american troops who don’t belong!

I’m sorry to say but that’s encouraging.


They need more and bigger rockets.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
