Here’s What Trump Tweeted Right After Iran Attacked American Bases In Iraq

(Tea Party PAC) – On Tuesday, President Donald Trump took to Twitter so he could assure the American people directly, without any of the media spin, that “all is well” following an attack by Iran on American bases in Iraq.

Iran fired up to 15 ballistic missiles in two waves of attack on US military forces and coalition forces in Iraq in retaliation for the US airstrike over the weekend which killed Iranian General Qassem Soleimani.

With thankfully no casualties, it seems that Iran was more interested in saving face than they were in actually attacking us. What cowards!

According to Fox News, ten missiles hit the remote Al-Assad Airbase while one missile hit a military base in Erbil. Four missiles reportedly failed to hit their targets, according to a US military spokesman for Central Command.

The president was quick to tweet reassurance:

“All is well! Missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in Iraq,” he wrote. “Assessment of casualties & damages taking place now. So far, so good! We have the most powerful and well-equipped military anywhere in the world, by far! I will be making a statement tomorrow morning.”

Just before Trump’s tweet, Iran’s Foreign Minister, Javad Zarif posted his own tweet, referring to the UN Charter to try to paint the attack as an incident of “self-defense” and claiming that Iran is not seeking an escalation.

Right after launching an attack that marks a major escalation. Right.

“Iran took & concluded proportionate measures in self-defense under Article 51 of UN Charter targeting base from which cowardly armed attack against our citizens & senior officials were launched,” Zarif said. “We do not seek escalation or war, but will defend ourselves against any aggression.”

The word “concluded” seems to indicate the Iranians would at least like us to believe there will be no more strikes unless the US retaliates.

Former Delta Force Commander General Jerry Boykin noted on Fox News that Iran’s capabilities are “much better” than what was seen in the attack, indicating that the Islamic Republic really wasn’t trying to actually inflict harm.

“I think it’s entirely feasible that they had no intentions of harming Americans,” he said. “I think this was propaganda — they’re going to get a lot of propaganda out of this back in Tehran.”

Boykin’s prediction is a “rapid de-escalation” from Iran, although it’s likely that we have not seen the end of terror attacks.

Congressional Republican and former Navy SEAL Dan Crenshaw (TX), who deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq five times himself, agreed that Iran was simply trying to “save face” with the missile attacks.

“Tonight Iran did as expected: attempt to save face and continue their attacks,” he tweeted. “No known casualties at this time. Make no mistake, if needed, we will hit back. They know that. This is a time for national fortitude and unity for the sake of our men and women in harm’s way.”

  1. Not cowards, just a calculated response with “accurate” missiles to produce little damage with no deaths just let us know that they can. Save face action, nothing more.

  2. Reading between the lines, a dialog of mutual respect has now been established between the Ayatollahs and Trump. The same sort of dialog was established between Trump and Kim Jong-Un. In Kim’s case, there is no crazy religious overtone driving the dialog, but there is some doubt whether Kim really rules in NK. In the Ayatollahs’ case there is no doubt who rules in Iran, but the religious overtone is in overdrive. Both situations lend themselves to protracted games of cat and mouse. Fortunately, Trump is a master of such games, while Democrats are lost in the whirling of their dreams for power.

  3. President Trump did exactly what he should have done. The crazy Dems like Polosi
    don’t want anything but impeachment and whatever that takes to get the task completed
    before the 2020 election.
    The Democratic Party both congress and senate are hell bent toward their motive because they were beaten in 2016 and they don’t have the professional intelligence to do what is best for our country because their heart in NOT FOR THE USA. They only want to be in power positions to rule their own agenda to continue to destroy the US of America.. I am a simple minded old country man, but God has given me the sense to
    understand that “Our Country and especially our elected citizens should look first at what is best for the US and not what is best for a chosen political party”. !!!

  4. Keep are country safe President Trump . DO not listen to the communist democrats and there losing viewpoints . We the American People are behind you

  5. Can’t say how I know this, but… They were not “missiles.” They were rockets. Rockets are less destructive, but can be deadly just the same.

  6. If those ragheads continue to piss off the Presiden with their bullshit, they’ll be lucky to have any “face” left worth saving!

  7. ALL THE MORE REASON TO GET LIGHT YEARS AHEAD OF OUR ENEMIES. E
