Rockets Targeted U.S. Ain Al-Asad Air Base In Iraq

This aerial photo shows Ain al-Assad air base in the western Anbar desert, Iraq, in December 2019.

On May 24th, rockets were fired at Ain Al Asad Air Base in western Iraq’s Anbar province. According to the military Spokesman for Operation Inherent Resolve, one rocket targeted the air base. According to several reports, at least 5 rockets were fired.

The accident did not result in material or human losses.

The attack took place two days after the Iraqi Resistance coordination room had issued a statement threatening the US forces of resuming attacks.

Previously, on May 23, 6 US logistical convoys were reportedly targeted with roadside bombs in various regions of Iraq.

The attacks were reported in Babylon, Aldewanea, Alsmewa, Alnasrea and Basrah regions.

Iraqi “resistance” forces are known to carry out such attack on US forces in order to push them out of the country.

The attacks on US supply convoys and facilities in Iraq are a response to the assassination of Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, Deputy-Commander of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units, and Commander of Iran’s Quds Force, Qassim Soleimani.

Dear South Front. Why are there no more comments through discuss on this site? It was a great service. People could follow, respond to comments when notified of a response, attach pictures, there was a record of posts or follow ups with others.
It was great. Can you get another service with the features of discuss?

Lots of people on here were censored in a very arbitrary and capricious way. there was zero rhyme or reason to what was censored and what wasn”t. For everything i was censored for, i could find a poster using the same or similar language or ideas. Maybe they got tired of complaints about that. I do agree that the format was more user-friendly, however.

not mention the long feuds i had with jens holm.

But the fact was also that if people would be censored for
-use of swear words (around more then a 3)
-if they were reported by 5 or more people

SF should have used moderators but there were issues with that as well

Jens was the first to report me, and we both know he’s absolutely bananas. And it worked, my post was deleted. I also had some super innocuous posts censored with language i confirmed i had seen in many posts, and the only reason appeared to be that another poster was butt hurt about it. I’ve never reported anyone for insulting me, not matter what language they used. Only thing I reported was spam. I’d rather deal with insults galore from people who hate my opinion than have them be censored. Also, I’d rather they have a code of conduct at the top of the comment thread if they DO want to censor obscenities, so that we all abide by the same rules.

Absolutely agree. Not sure if Jens reported me but most likely did. I saw him talking with , I think it was Diana troll , the one with the British Ensign where Jens told her that contrary to posts that he doesn’t get paid for having sex with men but gets paid to write posts on Discuss. By whom I have no idea but if one looked at his discuss log it was a never ending list of comments on many sites to almost every comment made by anyone. Mostly garbage as we know and stupid metaphors that only he could understand . He should be at minimum restricted to the amount of comments made as he adds no value whatso ever. Proud hindu should be banned for his absolute crap but other than that I have no problem with those of opposing views even if those degenerate into name calling as they mostly do. It is so good to have proper discussions with people and many with different knowledge to share. However as we all know this site is being swamped in stupidity and if they don’t clean it up the comments section which is open to all unlike most sites will collapse. If that means I just come here to catch up on what is happening in the ME that we don’t see in MSM then so be it but I would much prefer some sort of sanity and moderation of the stupidity.

Steve Standley

Yeah Jens is a gadfly whose batshit modus operandi pretty much got under the censorship bar; namely because he rarely made any sense. That said, there are a ton of very knowledgeable people from around the globe that post here. They post facts and critical analysis, and I like that. As you suggest above^, I have actually learned things in SouthFront commentaries. I hope that it can be preserved.

What if everyone contributed ideas to help and formulate some sort of policy to follow. Such as nothing one says to jens works as he believes he is on a mission from God so perhaps anytime he comments one person notes that he is a troll and to ignore and don’t comment on anything he says. Same for Proud hindu . I am sure replying to their trash boosts their egos and makes them write more. There are plenty of sensible people on here , or were so surely we can come up with something even if it is some sort of self moderation rather than end up with someone like jens or Iron Zion as moderator.
Very open to ideas

Steve Standley and Peter Wallace, good constructive Ideas, i asked yesterday the same question to block proud prick and how to ignore autistic jens hom.

The prior comment platform, Disqus, became Jew owned in 2017 (Zeta Global). Censorship followed quickly thereafter.

Tyrannies and the Jews are founded upon lies. Neither can exist in an environment of truth and critical thinking*.

Be reminded that Orwell “1984” is a fictionalization of the Jews’ Protocols, and a warning to us of what is to come from the Jew virus rising in within our countries. The speech, behavior, and thought suppression Orwell wrote of flow from his experience with the Jews in Spain during the Jews’ Spanish Civil War, and from the Jews’ Protocols. Until suppressed by the Jews, the Jews’ Protocols were widely published in America, the UK, and Turkey in the 1920.

*So as to undermine “critical thinking,” the Jews named their society destroying plans “Critical Theory.”


In weeks before SF decoupled from Disqus – if a comment user took on a resident troll they were sometimes getting replies that were just URL hyperlinks from another unknown user. These were very dodgy hyperlinks – not something wise to click on – first part of URL might have read ‘google image’ or something similar – but if hovered over full link to see rest of it, was very weird destination that likely had bad intent – ie viruses. Couldn’t say if SF acted in relation to this – or other bigger issues, as notably the Russian Insider website has also decoupled from Disqus in same time frame. Either way there were increasing user related issues with Disqus for Russian based news and and strategic report websites.

Lots of dodgy things going on with Disqus and it will only get worse. They introduced the downvote which IMO was to facilitate the influx of trolls and give them a way of attacking good comments, which happen to be against their views and the views of those paying them, sending these comments to the bottom of the stack where they are less likely to be read.

Israel is an Apartheid State

The US should just withdraw from Iraq and Syria. Stop wasting your resources and money on small powerless states. Iraq and Syria are big distractions from China. China is laughhing as the USA wastes money and gets bogged down in the middle east.


US military is funded by the taxpayer but works for US capital interests. As long as US investors have an interest in Syria and iraq the US military will stay there …. taxpayers can just do what they’re told, shut the fuck up and pay the bills their owners tell them to.

no they don’t need to their are many loops holes such as living campers, buy food at local farmers market, i think of enough tax credits and loop holes that make the IRS fear you.

Israel is an Apartheid State

The USA knows that it has to have a strategy, or it will lose it’s position as a worldwide hegemon. There are different factions in the US establishment, and they each have their own goals. But, they all know that if China rises even further, then the US loses its global position, and then they will be able to do absolutely nothing about their “capital interests”.

The USA won’t be able to do anything at all, when most countries sign deals with China and Russia and Iran. Eventually, China will have better weapons and aircraft and ships than America. Is America going to fight the Chinese military, which is much more powerful, more organized, and more advanced?

The more the USA “works for US capital interests”, the sooner the day will come when the USA will be completely powerless on the world stage. One day, America is going to be like a Colombia or a Brazil. It will be completely irrelevant on the world stage.

USA the self invited guest which kills, steals and destroys, even when the host begs them to leave the drunk psychopath still wants to stay.

I think they should stay so the iraqis can have their shot at booting them out in the most humiliating way possible.
