US strikes in Iraq and Syria overnight didn’t take long to provoke a reaction, despite claims that the strikes were a “deterrent.” US troops in Syria were under rocket attacks within a matter of hours.
Details are still emerging, though the US says that there are no casualties so far. This is just the start of the problem though, with the targeted militia vowing “open war with the American occupation.”
US troops reportedly came under rocket fire in northeastern Syria, and US troops responded with artillery fire. Secretary of State Tony Blinken said that the US is ready to act further.
Iraq’s umbrella militia Hashd al-Shaabi says four Iraqis were killed in the US attacks, and promised to “wreak vengeance on the perpetrators of this heinous crime.” In the attack on Syria, the US killed at least one civilian child.
In addition to attacks in Syria, the group is threatening to target US aircraft and fire missiles against US bases in Iraq.
Many in Iraq are calling for revenge, while Iran issued a statement warning Biden that he is headed down the wrong path. Biden has touted this as a message to Iran.

USA breaks into syria, occupies pieces and demands they stop resisting? WTF is wrong with all of us???
Not US, THEM, the stupid armchair warriors ( there are Generals who never tasted combat).
They, the ‘us,’ which includes both Republican conservatives and Democratic liberals, idolize the troops and refuse to acknowledge the troops are mass murdering stooges for the ruling class. Blame the troops and demonstrate contempt for their obedience to end America’s wars!
Invaders, occupiers and genocidal maniacs are doomed.
This is how the original British occupation of Afghanistan turned into its 1842 disaster. Ignore how they feel, stir wide trouble without concern, and just wait for it all to blow up.
What is the USA still doing in Iraq????? in Syria?? It has just agreed that the people it has bombed were an important part of Iraqi defense! How is Biden better than Trump??
America’s obedient troops are protecting petroleum assets in occupied foreign lands for special interests.
What are Iraqis waiting for? US fascists invaded in 2003.
Secretaries of State behave more like Generals, who are always “behind the lines” somewhere for their safety. Now why is our Department of Diplomacy in recent history emulating that General in Dr. Strangelove?
