There is a siege in progress at the United States embassy in Iraq.
Non-military personnel have been evacuated, and only a complement of U.S. soldiers is on the premises. I hope they get through this safely.
The reason for the siege? According to Ross Ibbetson’s picture – laden article at London’s Daily Mail:
It comes after US fighter jets decimated three locations in Iraq on Sunday night, in retaliation for last week’s killing of an American contractor in a rocket attack in the region.
If you use the above link to read the entire article and view the pictures, try and find any Iranian law enforcement trying to prevent this from happening, or from escalating.
Then wonder, along with me, why the hell we are there.
