Several Americans were injured when rockets hit Iraqi base for second time in a week

(CNN)The three coalition members wounded when rockets struck a military base in Iraq on Saturday were US personnel, a US military official told CNN.

It was not immediately clear whether they were military personnel or civilian.

The al-Taji base was hit by its second rocket attack in a week early on Saturday local time, Col. Myles B. Caggins III, a spokesman for the international Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR), confirmed on Twitter.

Caggins said three coalition troops and two Iraqi troops were wounded and authorities were assessing the damage.

If Americans really want to remain safe in Iraq, they have to answer the attacks by hitting missiles on Tehran and Qom.
Same goes for Saudi and other GCC members.
Till Mulla in Iran is satisfied about safety of Tehran and Qom, he would continue to bite like a mad dog.
Iraq is in a political deadlock at the moment and protests are continuing. So I believe these pro-Iran militias are trying to bring about an end to the protests by putting the country into some heightened security situation. I doubt Iran and these pro-Iran militias really want to confront the US and try pushing US troops out of Iraq. They would lose their power that way. They are only tough against weaker people like protestors or attacking their neighbors who are focusing on economic development.

So Saudi and GCC are facing existential threat from Iran and they need covert efforts in Iran and intelligence efforts to determine what Iranian leadership's plans are for GCC and Saudi Arabia and to be able to weaken Iranian leadership. If Iran senses US is distracted by major event and won't be able to come to aide of GCC/Saudi then they will attack and make their moves against them since Iranian leadership is uncivilized and have too much sectarian hate in their hearts. They'll attack Turkey, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia before firing one bullet at Israel.

Any response from US so far?
There is no existing active operation by the US against the Iraqi militias and thus no state of war, so they have to get permission to respond from higher command. In this case the President himself, who has signaled in the past he will only respond to American deaths and is very busy trying to get a stimulus package out to help keep economy float due to coronavirus related economic slowdown.

So no response yet, and another two rockets hit an area in Baghdad yesterday supposedly targeting coalition forces but didn't cause any casualties.

Iran better watches out. I do not know why the Mullah is so eager to pick a fighter with the US especially in this time.
