President Trump Responds To Iran After Latest Attack On Baghdad Embassy With Warning

 

President Trump in a surprise tweet on Wednesday, December 23, 2020,  has directly blamed Iran for the Sunday rocket attack on the US Embassy in Baghdad, on December 20, 2020, which according to prior reports involved eight ground-fired rockets targeting the compound.

The US embassy’s high tech C-RAM system, or “Counter rocket, artillery, and mortar” defense weapon, was activated in response to the inbound rocket fire, writes Tyler Durden with Zero Hedge.

 


 


 

The President’s response comes as the USS Georgia nuclear submarine is currently deployed to the Strait of Hormuz in very open signaling that the Pentagon is prepared to react to any possible escalation form the Islamic Republic.

Trump cited intelligence chatter in his latest statement on Twitter, saying, “Our embassy in Baghdad got hit Sunday by several rockets. Three rockets failed to launch. Guess where they were from: IRAN.”

 


 


 

He included a photograph of unexploded ordinance, which appears to depict some of the very rockets among the Sunday night volley which activated the embassy compound’s counter-rocket defense system. Apparently these failed to explode on impact.

“Now we hear chatter of additional attacks against Americans in Iraq,” President Trump added, before warning that “If one American is killed, I will hold Iran responsible. Think it over.”

 


 


Iran has repeatedly vowed of late to retaliate both for Soleimani’s killing (the one year anniversary of his Jan. 3, 2020 death is less than two weeks away) but also for the more recent death of top nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, which leaders in Tehran have blamed on Israel and the US.
