President Trump has now reacted to the attack on our embassy in Iraq:
“Iran killed an American contractor, wounding many. We strongly responded, and always will,” the president wrote on Twitter. “Now Iran is orchestrating an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. They will be held fully responsible.”
“In addition, we expect Iraq to use its forces to protect the Embassy, and so notified!”
What this means and where it goes? I don’t know.
Let’s hope – fervently – that it doesn’t escalate into a war….which it clearly has the potential to do.
More on this as events unfold.
