US Scrambled Warplanes From UAE Air Base For Supposed Strike On Iran After Missiles Hit US Facilities In Iraq

US warplanes were scrambled from Al-Dhafra Air Base in the United Arab Emirates for a possible strike on Iran, according to reports from local and media sources. The group of the warplanes reportedly includes more than six US Air Force F-35A Lightning II fighter jets.

The warplanes left the UAE in several minutes after US military facilities in Iraq came under a missile attack from Iran.

According to Syrian sources, an intense activity of the US Air Force was spotted over Iraq and the Syrian province of Deir Ezzor (near the Iraqi border).

Earlier, Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps launched at least 10  missiles at the US airbase of Ain al-Assad in Anbar province in western Iraq. A second wave of Iranian strikes reportedly hit the US military facility near the Iraqi city of Erbil.

          A Ukrainian civilian plane has crashed in Iran sadly. This phase of Iranian response seems to be over and they have put the US on notice.

          If the US and its allies launch any more attacks on Iran, they will incur
          “more painful and crushing responses,” the Islamic Revolutionary Guards
          of Iran warned, noting that ‘Zionist regime’ of Israel will not be
          spared.

      There are reports out of Iran that they have tracked some US troops being redeployed to Aden in Yemen. Surely the Houthis would like to contribute to encouraging the US to leave. Funny how they didn’t run to their friends, the Saudis. Oh, yeah…even the Saudi’s are fleeing KSA. Gotta lot of faith in their US/western defenses , huh?

  • Vince Dhimos

    Well, F.35s are supersonic, so if they wanted to hit Iran, why so late?

    • Nowruz

      Maybe they remembered what happened to the RQ 4 Global Hawk.

    • MikeH

      F35 is supersonic on paper. It has no range to use the burner and the skin fails at sustained high-speed flight.

    • Jake321

      And Israel will nuke Iran. Your turn.

      • Gary Sellars

        See what happens if Ziostan was so homicidal as to use nukes….

        how they going to nuke anyone when 200 000 Hez rockets turn every base and city in israel to Ash? I dont dont know but hopefully soon we will find out

      • Ewan

        Then Iran will Nuke the Fake khazar Ghetto rats in HellAviv.

        Israel’s strategic depth consists of 3 cities. 1 nuke per city.Then what?

        Now Your turn

        • Redadmiral

          NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. Iran takes the highest moral position of all countries in the world. They will NEVER produce nuclear weapons and hold anyone who uses them as craven maniacs who should be executed.

  • Luke Hemmming

    The PROVERBIAL shit is about to hit the fan.

    • Free Dom

      Yuh think….

  • WHAT

    More like scrambled to avoid being hit on the ground by Iranian cruise and ballistic missiles. US has literally no effective AA or radar warning, notice there is zero AA fire on incoming missiles in every released video.

    F-35 has a very short loiter time to boot, if they vere going to shoot at something in Iran there would be reports about it already.

    • Jake321

      Who needs to shoot down missiles that obviously miss any significant targets?

      • d’Artagnan

        The FACT is that you have a big mouth like US and all Zionists. Paper Tigers :)

      • John Wallace

        It was a message sent to let Trump know if you want to play we can and will.. nothing more.

      • WHAT

        Familiar excuse when Iron Dome fails yet again versus literal pipe rockets, yes.

      • Nosferatu

        So you claim US knew that those missiles would miss? In tha phase of misssile flight when intercepting missiles have to be released already it is not possible to determine where they would hit with that much accuracy….

    • d’Artagnan

      Iranian response was expected and hit the US to get the message across that a rogue warmonger like US will not be allowed to kill people with impunity. US is now in a quandary as its bluff has been called and there is nothing it can do to Iran. Iranians are very cool, calm and collected customers, they will escalate as needed, but I don’t see the loudmouth Trump doing anything else but playing down US losses and hoping that Iran will stop here.

      • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

        i was watching cnn theyre saying no american deaths, i find that hard to believe, and trump says “all is well” the base was completely destroyed from what i read lmao

        • d’Artagnan

          They are taking lessons from the Zionists is telling lies. The Zionists also say the same after Hezbollah humiliates them. The US is trying to deescalate as they are humiliated and now have only two options :

          1. Start a major sapping war for decades and start national conscription (highly unlikely)

          2. Deescalate and slowly get out of the region as there is real anger and rising anti-American sentiment. The Zionist criminals have gone quiet and most of the Arab Sheiks are in Europe hiding as Dubai and Tel Aviv will be hit hard if US commits suicide. I don’t think US will do anything, maybe cosmetically drop bombs in the desert for domestic PR.

          • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

            hopefully they choose option 2. i had been praying for sometime for US to get out of the region and for God to protect iran, and with soleimanis death it seems that is finally starting to happen. funny because i never in a million years thought it would start that way. God does indeed work in mysterious ways it seems

      • Ashok Varma

        Iraq’s Ayn al-Asad Air Base and at least one site in Kurdistan’s Erbil
        were hit by Iranian cruise missiles and short-range ballistic missiles
        launched from within the neighboring Islamic Republic,local reports indicate severe damage to the bases and many casualties.

            Leaving the middle east makes no sense for the american policy makers, because of the petro dlollar scheme.

            Come on man, of all people, you should know!

            Thats the bottom line. This is a battle to keep USA dollar as worlds reserve currency, this is the USA’ s strongest weapon. Them leaving the middle east would comprimise that weapon greatly.

            I beleive getting off the us dollar will benefit mankind, it will hurt me.and my family alot, but i understand that alot of what we have is because of plunder basically.

      Sorry, Iran doesn’t have any aircraft carriers and the one Russia has sunk in dry dock. How embarrassing.

      • Gary Sellars

        Sunk in dry dock… Nope :-D stupid zio-rat kiddie fiddler

      • d’Artagnan

        Even though you bloodsucking Jews want a war between Iran and US, it will not happen as American military is well aware of the consequences and not about to commit suicide. But not the same can be said about the doubtful future of the Zionist parasites. Iran has shown some big balls today and God Bless its brave and tenacious people.

        • Kell McBanned

          Yep israel is doomed, the US will now withdraw from the region and they are on their own lol

          • d’Artagnan

            Israel is a fake failed state and was created by British imperialists to sow mayhem in the region and was never tenable anyway, like its Nazi and Apartheid role models. The doom for Zionism is now much closer. Iranian government just released a statement that so-called “Israel” will be hit next if there is any escalation. The US has gone quiet.

      • John Wallace

        In that case better pick an American one then.

      • grandel

        You got it wrong, buddy. The dry dock sank, not the aircraft carrier. How embarrassing, indeed.

    Iran attack and jews bot here in sf hides

    • Kell McBanned

  • Hide Behind

    US does not need to hit within Iran, they can bring immense amounts of hurt by striking Iranian malitia forces in Syria and Iraq.
    I do not know what.world most people live within when they talk of US.military being weak, but then again most of people living today have only seen limited engagements by US military , it is called proportionate response .
    There has to be some survivors in Europe that witnessed the destruction of whole cities, by old far less powerfull and nowhere as numerous bombs than what are in US arsenal today.
    Syrian cities are but a small example of destruction by only a few aircraft of US aiding the Kurds.
    One US aircraft carrier. strike force has as much firepower all of what Japan expended in total from 1930’s – 1945.
    World wide on average in some13 nations the US daily sends out 40 sorties of planes.
    They are not starting at one point and totally leveling a square mile but just individual targets; targets where only a.few die.
    Much is made that there is still ongoing combat in Afghanistan so US.did not win War, but US is realy winning the war of stealing resources and the cost of a few American lives, damn few of US compared to enemy combatants and civilians,
    Israel has killed hundreds of Hez, Iranians and Syrians and lost but 1 soldier and 1 plane.
    Thousands of babies are born deformed and the mentally damaged are/were tens of thousands more youths born since US invaded Iraq by depleted uranium munitions, poisoned and polluted foods and waters, and the bombing and artillary was lightly used by US. in Iraq.
    How many at beginning of invasion from Kuwat where thousands of Iraqi troop living in trenches were simply bulldozed over, shot waving white flags of surrender while still alive and not costing one American life.
    US did not need to unleash even 1/10th its military arsenal to destroy Iraq nor need to kill millions because millions just ran away or stayed to bow down in surrender, same as in Syria.
    To those who have seen the actual destruction during Real wars, not tv movies and video games, or some I’m nirvana of martyrdom means winning, please speak up.
    But that is not allowed in Europe and US, and as victors not victims we are proud at how well we did and still can kill with so little losses of our own.
    A widow of an American soldier recieves $250,000 Tax free USD, pension for life and health plus education for kids till they finish college.
    The most I heard paid out for a mistakenly killed Iraq man woman or child was.1500 USD, .life is cheap over there.

    • WHAT

      Yawn. US has two functional CBGs that will under no condition even approach Syria, because it will trigger devastating russian response. Of those two, only one is close enough to peninsula, and last time it was seen on maps, it was leaving.
      One option in Syria US still has is cruise missile attack, and everybody remembers how shamefully it went the last time. What was it, 60% interception rate by old soviet(granted, upgraded, and with guidance from Khmeimim) AA stock?

      You literally have nothing to play with.

      • Hide Behind

        US does not have to attack Russia, Russia in long term helped divide up Syria
        Russia early on made an agreement with US to not fly or attack US frces and it’s Kurdish allies, nor defend anyone but selves from Israeli attacks. and then further along is now aiding Turkey to steal a buffer zone.along the border.
        There is one other large chunk of Syrian land that Russia told Syrians to back away from and that is along Border with Jordan.
        US shoots down an unsuspecting Russian jet no responce, Turkey shoots down an unsuspecting Russia Jet,no response; US blows the heck out of 100+ Russian private security, no response.
        Russia is not at war.with US, just protecting own interest, and smart enough to know how to give a reach around now and then has its rewards.

        • WHAT

          Do you even have anything other than this stale MSM bullshit? What “russian private security” exactly, without any kind of visual proof, with radio communications falsified by literal khokhol to boot, lol?
          Continuing with your delirium further, “US shoots down an unsuspecting Russian jet no responce” happened literally only in murrican wet dreams, while sad(for murricans) reality of the situation is, CENTCOM has a hotline with Khmeimim which they use specifically to never even approach russian jets to a launch distance.
          Turkey thing did happen, and there was a very painful economic responce from Russia, but murrican MSM of course will never tell you that. Responce so effective Turkey was virtually torn out of NATO lol.

          • Jake321

            I think he was referring to the Russian’s glorious Syrian allies shooting down that Russian plane and killing lots of Russians.

          Yes, their propaganda would like you to think that, except ineffective standoff bombings of empty barns and total strategic failure is all they have to show for it. Mention of Lebanon is especially funny, considering jews have managed to lose an F-16 over it even lol.

          • Jake321

            Guess those Iranian and Hezbollah body bags were also empty. I’m sure the families in Iran and Lebanon getting those body bags didn’t think it was funny.

      • Hide Behind

        Tis late here and while I have been occupied talking with Islamics here in US, did you know there are 100, 000, ex Iranians some third generation and if Canada is included 150,000 at least in North America, about significance of Red Flag in Iran, I caught your question and knowing you to be level headed and I respect, I will answer.
        Am old, talked to military men their friends my relatives and have read family letters clear back into late 1600s, who had been in wars from Spanish American until todays veterans and active duty.
        I an a Veteran of Vietnam conflict, still sane and spent years volunteering with a psychiatrist friend at State Mental Istitutoion coinciding Vets and tagging along with him on military bases where his firm specialized in militarys rampant spousal and child abuse for a contractor under DOD, and as having added experience through a few military step fathers, or as mom called them Uncles, I have a more than passing knowledge of military mindsets.
        Oh I have met one hell of a lot of both military and non, men and a couple women who liked killing, and some , majority had no real feelings about how, who or why they killed, were scary as all get out and passed as being sane by their bosses, friends, aquaintence, lovers and relatives.
        It is now being admitted, my psychiatrist friend wrote peer reviewed papers saying such years.ago, that not all men and women with PTSD and those committing suicide had actually been traumatized by combat or seen the effects of combat first hand.
        Deliberate ignorance is a normal(very common) human mental condition on the order of a self defense means of hiding from wars reality, and only as an observer did I watch my friend council parents whose sons and daughters suffered mental stress caused by their military years.
        Here is something to note:
        parents with military backgrounds had hardest time understanding why their child acted as they did, especially the grandparent if ex military.
        Another point to note over half those sessions I sat and took notes were parents who feared of child’s sanity because they liked being in combat,; were thrilled by it and could not stand stateside military and kept Volunteering.
        Yet even they swore their child would not kill civilians, others children did but not theirs.
        Then,especially Korea or WWII Gramps or Dads would interject with in wars things happen, and those who support your enemy are not realy civilians.
        What does a youth who has high ideals of patriotism instilled by dad mom and gramps do when he finds out he is responsible for the needless deaths of civilians and even those people who are only defending their homelands we invaded.
        Then he has immense peer pressure to man up and not be a p,,st and begins to think he may well be.
        Then he is back home out of service and only real people, to him he can talk to are ex vets who were not p,,sy”s.
        Long and complicated subject, but mental self defence hides behind deliberate ignorance the known true cost of war on non combatants even their children.
        Proud of indoctrinated and lies of memes upon glory of nations soldiers who after all we are told from age 3 that we owe all our freedoms to.
        There are lies we all can live with, but some once sane and rational who find the lies, find they cannot cope with them except through drugs, play acting or take own lives to end mental torment.
        Are their any solid answers or proofs. who knows as those who are said to know are best and most rewarded liars in US.

    • abuqahwa

      You tell the truth, the brutal reality is that the US is a rogue state, out of control, which does whatever it wants, with very MINOR blowback – until the mainland US takes even 1 % of the deaths and destruction the US has done they will continue to kill , unrestricted. Furthermore having trashed every international treaty on arms control the US will not hesitate to use tactical nuclear warheads if they suffer major military losses in the region. Remember the big difference (which also applies to NATO states) is that unlike Syria/Libya/Iraq/Iran the US homeland is not under direct attack, this is why it is very, very, short-sighted for Libya/Syria/Iran to surrender their WMD which effectively gives the green light to US+Israel to bomb with impunity – how many airstrikes/missile attacks did Israel/US/GB/FR do on Syria last year with ZERO retaliation ??

      • Jake321

        Well over a hundred. And well over a hundred Iranians and Hezbollah were sent home in body bags with ZERO retaliation. Mostly because they don’t want to be wiped out in an all out war with Israel and the US. That is also why the Iranians have just made an ineffectual attack on US troops in Iraq. It’s for home consumption while they pray that the US will not respond.

        • abuqahwa

          I doný like it but this IS the reality, those who cheer-lead the odd, miniscule, pinprick on the US war machine should think about the consequences for those who will suffer
