U.S.-led Convoy Attacked With ‘Guided Missile’ In Iraq’s Al-Diwaniyah

Photo: military-today.com

On October 1, a convoy moving equipment for the U.S.-led coalition in the southern Iraqi province of al-Diwaniyah was targeted with a “guided missile.”

In an official statement, the Iraqi Security Media Cell said the convoy was struck as it was passing near the town of al-Shomali. The cell claimed that the missile didn’t explode.

“The attack damaged one of the [convoy’s] containers without causing any losses, the convoy continued to move towards its intended destination,” the statement reads.

Sabereen News, a Telegram Channel close to Shiite armed groups, confirmed that this was the first attack with an anti-tank guided missile on a U.S.-led coalition convoy.

In the last few weeks, a series of attacks targeted several convoys of the U.S.-led coalition in central and southern Iraq. The most recent attack took place two days ago. Improvised explosive devices were used in all previous attacks.

Iraqi Shiite armed groups affiliated with Iran are allegedly behind the recent wave of attacks against U.S. forces. These groups are apparently working to develop their capabilities and increase their attacks.

These attacks are believed to be a response to the assassination of Iran’s Quds Force Commander, Qassim Soleimani, and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, Deputy-Commander of the Popular Mobilization Units.

Fog of War

Another “impotent ” attack. Notice a pattern ?

Kenny Jones ™

Yes, they’re escalating, a message that the resistance has ATGM’s too which can target them in case of war

occupybacon

Saddam had ATGM’s too, they didn’t explode either

Lone Ranger

U.S. quality…

Kenny Jones ™

I’m telling you, until the US election things are gonna blow, we’ll find out soon enough who was right, but for now, don’t leave till November ;)

occupybacon

I’m holding tight

The Objective

Things are gonna blow but without any American deaths unless it be accidental. Why intensify the attacks in November if you really intend to fight? Your current moves are all political and aimed at helping Biden win cos Trump is a nightmare for you heroes of threat and bluster.

Kenny Jones ™

This will help Biden win actually as Trump will come out as the warmonger, it was his decision to stay in Iraq and occupy since January, he brought this to himself

Great Khan

Trump great big mouth warrior with Orangutan looks, good for fighting in Java junglecomment image .

The Objective

Only that he’s no longer a mouthy warrior because he stroke you where it hurts the most.

Rhodium 10

USA lost 4742 soldiers and 60.000 wounded as consecuence of IED,SVIED RPG and light machine guns during the occupation….Shia militia are bigger than Islamic army of Irak ( then the main group vs occupation) and have better weapons..like massive ATGM, ZSU 23mm, drones and cal 50 sniper rifles.

Fog of War

Wow, a whopping 4742 troops. That many troops were lost in the first hours of certain battles in the past. No ‘merikan, at home, cared or noticed for the most part. The resistance will have to do 10x better to have any affect. That’s why I say , impotent attacks, most likely self-inflicted ” wounds “.

Traiano Welcome

4742 official deaths. Remember the US has a history of concealing casualties and deaths.

occupybacon

Now I’m really scared

Fog of War

Hope springs eternal, but denial is not an admirable trait.

The Objective

A wrong message because I think the American military commanders are already aware of these weapons in the hands of Iran’s militias and have their counter plans as well. Problem is, Trump already warned Iran they’ll hold Tehran responsible should any American die at the hands of these militias. Iran is increasing the risk of war even as it struggles to avoid it. There is no certainty these militias can be fully controlled. There could be rogue elements among them that’ll go out of their way to kill Americans just to provoke a U.S/Iran war.
The thousands of militias in the Middle East has made a U.S-Iran war inevitable.

John Wallace

I would think that Pomppy and all his fellow neo-cons are determined tomake the US have a war with Iran. If a bully attacks someone is not the family allowed to fight back or in your words are they the cause of the problem.

John Wallace

Flea bites of nuisance value. Need to bring in the Houthis to show they how to take care of a convoy.

The Objective

Always impotent. They are looking for ways to prevent Trump winning the election. all this is aimed at propaganda. They are scared shit of a Trump second term. The FBI tipped twitter yesterday to delete over 100 Iranian twitter accounts that were attempting to badmouth Trump over the presidential debate in order to tip the scales in favor of Joe Biden. The report noted these fake twitter accounts posing as Americans were drawing attention to Trump’s refusal to denounce white supremacy groups. this they use as a propaganda weapon to turn public opinion against Trump. No country is more scared of a second Trump presidency than Iran and its militias.

John Wallace

No country is more scared of Trump. I seem to remember a bombastic we will bomb them back to the stone age if Iran dares too attack any US asset. The next day Trump turned white and shaking in his pissed filled boots after they sent a tiny message that burst more than a few eardrums. You call yourself Objective which is a typical American joke. Anything but objective, in fact fuking delusional.

Dicksonrp

I think Donald Dump did more than a piss…

Garga

Does it count if they find an Iranian passport in the un-exploded missile?

Fog of War

That would be Kosher.

Me thinks these are US isrealhelli terrorist taught FALSE FLAG ATTACKS. If they were Iranian backed… The evil empire US forces would of been blown sky high.

Fog of War

Come on now ! Many tires were blown out in these ” ferocious ” attacks, why would you insinuate that ?

Dicksonrp

Great Khan

Iranian don’t want wrath of the khan.

You are a con alright.

Great Khan

Khan Con?

Dicksonrp

You mean the CON…
CON JEW…. your swine family Schlomo

Traiano Welcome

Mossad. CIA. People who need the US to remain in Iraq for fun and profit.

Besides – the Yinon Plan is not yet complete …

Fog of War

I dont think so. They would go for high casualty events to make sure the US public gets enraged enough and quickly. These attacks arent meant to do much damage or kill. Most likely they are leading up to something bigger, and the US public is being ” prepared ” for it. It also allows ZioAmerica do make dramatic sweeping steps like threatening to close the embassy, and so forth.

Traiano Welcome

If they are going for false flags, they cannot risk high casualty events because if it is discovered that any ‘ally’ was responsible, the repurcussions will be high.

John Wallace

you seem to have a thing about getting it or giving it in the arse. Might be wise of me to back out of this.

Dicksonrp

Ju boys love it in their arses.. Ask soft Zion

The Objective

Let’s hope Trump wins the election. These cowards will either surrender or face destruction. Trump is currently preoccupied with re-election and it’ll take a sufficient provocation to make him react – like killing or wounding Americans. That’s why the cowards never dare cross that line after he dealt them a catastrophic blow months ago.

Traiano Welcome

I do hope Trump wins the election. Under his guidance the US Empire is going straight to hell faster than under Obama, Bush and Slick Willy combined.

After the United States no longer wants to fight Israel’s wars of domination in the Middle East, the Jewish State will be the last Templar Castle in the Middle East.

” After the United States no longer wants to fight Israel’s wars ”

The US will no longer exist before that happens.

It showed all it’s muscles for 17 years. Trillion dollars later – no results. Pathetic.

verner

well the disunited states of A is technically bankrupt and keeps going with the feds help and as long as there are a few willing to take the bonds issued, even at dismal 0.66%, but the number of willing sycophants is falling since no one wants to hold these bonds when the entire shebang crumbles.

Not against PMU…

Traiano Welcome

What are you talking about? Don’t you remember the Mahdi Army? The Badr Brigades?

Oh right … You’re a teen. This was before your time.

<>

I mean in the last few months, no major airstrikes targeted the PMU leaders and members as a retaliation for the rocket attacks. But don’t worry, it’s only fun till the U.S decides they’ve had neough.

coward logic

U need to stop bending over, pants down for lucifer.

John Wallace

Were they using ex US weapons in which case it would be ” being hoisted by their own petard ” . Poetic justice. Nevertheless flea bites that cause a momentary adrenalin rush.

Cheryl Brandon

well done Iraq, keep going.

verner

more of that and the morons will see the necessity of getting back home asap. can’t have the white house moron or any other moron fucking up the world under the pretext it’s for the national security of the yankee-twats on the other side of the world. what a larf.

The Objective

It’s a surprise that some people tend to think these petty attacks will get the U.S out of Iraq.

Great Khan

Khan knows best.

Dicksonrp

Petty attacks.. Yes… By the Americunts themselves.. FALSE FLAG. If Iran was behind…. A big boom already..

Dick Von Dast'Ard

Only there for the oil… No oil availability… No reason anymore to be there!

Dicksonrp

No.. Opium is more important for the Americunts and their gay boys.. Not oil

Dick Von Dast'Ard

That is certainly true of U.S. occupation of Afghanistan.

The Objective

I’m reposing comments I made below so the mouthy guys can read.

Always impotent attacks. They are looking for ways to prevent Trump winning the election. all this is aimed at propaganda. They are scared shit of a Trump second term. The FBI tipped twitter yesterday to delete over 100 Iranian twitter accounts that were attempting to badmouth Trump over the presidential debate in order to tip the scales in favor of Joe Biden.

Dick Von Dast'Ard

Iran (with it’s ballistic missile forces) has already shown it is quite capable of producing 100’s of U.S. casualties.

The Objective

And the U.S has shown it can produce millions of Iranian casualties. You do the math. What happens if Trump pull the nuclear card?
Iran is clearly punching above its weight. And it has created a problem in the Middle East (the militias) that I doubt even Iran can solve. I don’t think Iran can disarm these militias and un-train them. The consequence of these militias will be felt for decades to come.

Dick Von Dast'Ard

Well if Trump uses the nuclear card to clear adversaries then so will Xi, so will Putin.
The problem in the Middle East stems from the collapse of the Soviet Union and the invasion of Iraq by the West.

The Objective

These might be the initial cause of Middle East problem, but Iran certainly made it worse with the Shiite Militias threatening Sunnis in many societies. And that’s the reason Sunnis will not support them.

Jaime Galarza

He thinks he is some sort of expert. Such ignoramus.

Traiano Welcome

“Only 4 of them have been made.”

Wonderful, but 4 are not enough. There is a major risk of ABM being effective.

400 minimum. 4000 would almost guarantee Iran won’t have need of nuclear weapons.

Traiano Welcome

If they’re not to rely on … then what is ?

Better do it now ?.. World’s a better place without those jhous..

Just 1 to level isrealhell will bring peace to the world. It is the zio terrorist jew control and direction of America, that they are in Iraq today…

HB_Norica

“What happens if Trump pull the nuclear card?

Using nuclear weapons against a non – nuclear nation that has no ability to strike the USA let alone threaten the existence of the the USA?

If your plan was to utterly destroy the reputation and economy of the USA convince a president to nuke a country that can’t nuke back.

What are you going to blow up that needs a nuclear weapon instead of a conventional one?

What are the optics going to look like …. all the videos of the walking dead with flesh hanging off their bones … that doesn’t make friends and don’t get you re-elected.

There are only 2 reasons to use a weapon like that, terror and revenge.

Jim Allen

What happens if US launches nukes towards Russia, or it’s allies, is 7 locations in US, and any locations in Europe that launch nukes in the same direction will receive nuclear strikes from Russia’s hypersonic weapons immediately. As Putin described about a year ago.

The Objective

What you say makes sense to leaders who have some sense left in them. I doubt Netanyahu and Trump qualify as such.

The problem is, Iran is driving these people crazy with its relentless attempt to topple pro-US/Israel governments in the Middle East – training and arming Shiite Militias everywhere. It’s also driving Sunnis crazy by creating these militias within our societies, like in Iraq, Lebanon, Yemen, and Afghanistan. Thus, Iran threatens both pro-US (hypocrite) Sunnis, and anti-US(true) Sunnis, plus Israel.

History will blame Iran as much as it blames the U.S if a nuclear war were to occur. And believe me if Iran devastates Israel with its thousands of missiles, there’ll be a nuclear attack on Iran by Israel. Israeli and America leaders have consistently warned of such a possibility.

Iran can simply end this standoff by withdrawing from the countries it has entrenched itself, like in Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan, and others. It can reach a deal with the West that these locations will not be used to threaten Iran and that the U.S and Israel will stop all and any assault both economic, military, or political on Iran. It can continue developing missiles as an insurance against any future attack, and can develop its nuclear technology under IAEA supervision. It can be a Shiite theocracy and continue to rule as it sees fit. But it must give up this dangerous drive to dominate the Middle East (thus, controlling Mecca, Madinah, and Jerusalem – Iran’s ULTIMATE GOAL). Otherwise, a war is certain to occur.

Traiano Welcome

“And the U.S has shown it can produce millions of Iranian casualties.”

Not really. Why do you lie so frequently?

The Objective

I don’t think you have any doubt that when pushed to the wall, both Trump and Netanyahu will pull the nuclear card. Trump warned Khamenei after protesters set fire to U.S embassy in Baghdad. Trump said Iran will pay for it. Your supreme leader said Trump will do nothing – just like Iranian arrogance goes. Then booooooom, Soleimani and others were nuked in Iraq. I doubt the supreme leader would have said that if he had any idea what Trump would do.
Now Trump threatens your nation with an “official end”, “consequences with few in history have suffered”, and I think someone is finally taking these threats seriously as there have been no American redlines crossed in Iraq.
To me, Trump is a mad man with his hands on a nuclear button. If he doesn’t press the nuclear button, he’ll press the “big conventional bombs” button. Those bombs alone can devastate Iran regardless of all the boasting from Tehran – assuming Israel doesn’t pull the trigger first.

Traiano Welcome

“And it has created a problem in the Middle East (the militias) that I doubt even Iran can solve.”

Wrong. This problem was created by the USA. Stop Projecting.

This was predicted years before the US invaded: Militias and terror groups would form in the chaos that would be difficult to remove.

Nothing to do with Iran. Nobody here on this forum, other than the usual 3 hasbara trolls, buys your lies.

The Objective

Nobody buys that line? Even Iran doesn’t deny arming and funding these terrors. Did you listen to the address Iran made after the killing of Soleimani? I guess you have forgotten.
And for you information, Iran is notorious to creating armed groups in the region long long before a U.S invasion. Like what Iran did in Afghanistan in the 90s.

Traiano Welcome

” I don’t think Iran can disarm these militias and un-train them.”

Why should they? None of these Militias are working against Iranian interests.

The Objective

I’m not saying Iran should disarm them. What I meant is that Iran might not be able to disarm them even if Iran wanted to. Joe Biden also made it clear he’ll seek to strengthen the nuclear deal by discussing other Iran’s regional activities. He also says he’s ready for whatever path Iran choose between escalation and war or Diplomacy and peace. That doesn’t seem like what Iran might be hoping for.

Great Khan

The BIGGEST ME PROBLEMS… are you zio terrorist jewish scumm… Children of lucifer

Dicksonrp

Yes

ecocivilian

get lost apologist idiots Americans are cowards and will leave iraq like they did in Hanoi and also in Syria they will leave with their tails hanging between their legs Americans are just good at bragging and boasting about superdupper bs

John Wallace

The Americans that left Hanoi were POW”s that were given back to America after they surrendered in the South and left it in a chaotic shambles. The neo-cons blamed that loss on the Press so they then setout too control the press. That is why today the MSM does as it is told while pretending to be free and independent.

Jim Allen

It doesn’t matter who is President of US. It changes nothing. US military will continue it’s illegal occupation, of these countries, and the theft of their resources until they’re driven out.
Something you are unaware of, but US military is not, is the fact US military cannot defeat Iran in conventional war. Russia has advised what it’s actions will be should US launch nukes at Russia, or it’s allies. US military is not prepared for war against Iran, Russia, China, which has a military alliance with Russia. The facts don’t seem to sink in to your pitiful troll head. Do they ?
You certainly can’t grasp the concept the Middle East is just a part of a world conflict that your terrorist US military is not going to prevail.

John Wallace

Different wings on the same plane , different sides of the same coin. American elections are an illusion and distraction to satate the naïve who think they have a democracy when they are a Oligarchy.
comment image

The Objective

I grasp the concepts more than you pretend to. I once adviced you to pose a similar question to one of the pro-Russian military analysts like The Saker or Colonel Cassad. Visit thesaker.is and ask him concerning whether Russia will get into a conventional shooting war with the U.S to protect Iran.

Secondly, The U.S military will not defeat Iran if its intended goal is to invade and occupy like it does in Iraq and Afghanistan. That’s because Iran has the Basij – a Hezbollah-style paramilitary force that number in the millions. But America’s aim will be regime change and general chaos in Iran. Recently, hundreds of thousands have demonstrated and destroyed hundreds of properties from petrol stations to police stations, banks and other government institutions. That’s a pretty serious opposition that in a chaotic environment will lead to Civil war. Iran’s forces and security agencies were able to quell the protests because they were better organized than the protesters.

Imagine what the situation will look like if the U.S decimated Iran’s security and armed forces from the air, like bombing military barracks, police stations, courts, Basij institutions, etc. They don’t have to invade. Just sufficiently weakening Iran will present a grave danger to regime survival as the hundreds of thousands of protesters are still alive and within Iran.

We have seen how Russia’s AA systems have performed against drones in Syria and Libya – drones that are far less capable than America’s stealth bombers. Should hundreds of stealth bombers be deployed against Iran, there’s no defending the skies and America will dominate the skies within days.

The only thing Iran can do is try to devastate Saudi Arabia, UAE, Jordan, and a few others. But I’m PRETTY CERTAIN Iran will not dare rain missiles on Israel as it has always threatened to do, because doing so will prompt a nuclear attack on Iran by Israel. A top Israeli official once warned that if it (missiles) rained in Israel Iran will have a flood (nuclear attack).

Talking about Russia protecting Iran from a U.S/Israel assault, tell Russia to first protect Iran in Syria. You’re the one who’s being delusional.
