Democratically elected US President Donald Trump declared that the USG would do nothing more than impose more sanctions on Iran after Iran's Republic Guard fired ballistic missiles at two USG positions in Iraq. Despite years of US saber rattling against Iran, once Iran struck under their own national flag in retaliation for the USG's assasination of a beloved Iranian general inside Iraq's Baghdad International Airport, US President Donald Trump found himself sitting precariously on such a mountain of incompetents that he could only stand down today.

Earlier today, Iran's Parliament added the rest of the US Military to their list of global terrorists today after adding only CENTCOM and other USG subunits last April. (archived). Hours later Iran's Revolutionary Guard began prosecuting Iran's War Against Global Terrorism by striking USG targets inside Iraq with ballistic missiles.
Eric Chewning, chief of staff to USG "Defense" Madame Secretary Mark Esper is resigning from his role at the end of this month after the USG has entered into a war with Iran (archived, archived). Chewning allegedly left Morgan Stanley to join the US Military during the immediate post 9/11 burst of USian partiotism. His departure is being presented as "planned in advance" of the USG's recent entry into open war with Iran. Continue reading
Iraq's parliament has responded to the USG's strike on Baghdad International Airport by passing a resolution that instructs the Iraqi government to cancel the ongoing request for assistance in combating ISIS issued to the USG and its "coalition" (archived). The "request for assistance" is the present legal cover that allows USG Troops to operate and be garrisoned in Iraq without the situation officially falling into being "an invasion" or "an ocupation" despite the USG troops in Iraq fighting just about everybody except ISIS.
Democratically elected US President Donald Trump ordered an airstrike inside the perimeter of Iraq's Baghdad International Airport, and through doing so assassinated Iranian Quds force commander Qassem Soleimani while inflicting other casualties. Arrivals and departures from the airport have been disrupted by the attack. The attack is being presented by USG sources as retaliation for the recent seige of the US "Embassy" in Iraq by Iraqis who eventually dispersed when ordered to do so by Iraqi police and military forces.

After the USG conducted bombing raids inside Iraq's borders, a number of Iraqis have beseiged the USG "embassy" and have entered the "green zone" (archived). Despite Dubya Bush declaring "mission accomplished" and Hussein Bahamas "withdrawing US troops", the USG's insistence on continuing to conduct combat and bombing operations inside Iraq doesn't sit well with Iraqis. It doesn't seem to sit well with the "democratic" government the USG insisted on installing in Iraq either. They seem to increasingly view Iran as a more important regional partner than the USG ever was. Continue reading
Holding its own against periodic USG, British, and Israeli invasion threats, Iran has begun conducting joing naval exercises with Russia and China in the Gulf of Oman (archived, archived). After a series of tit for tat ship captures that resolved in Iran's favor, USG threats of the sort that lead to Dubya's Iraq misadventure and Hussein Bahamas' collected "Spring" misadventures appear increasingly empty when it comes to Iran.
Despite the withdrawal of USG troops in Syria being loudly announced several times only for "withdrawal of troops from Syria" never actually meaning that in the plain sense, the USG is touting the alleged success of "Operation Holiday Express" (archived). Despite USG military capability falling to the point it can only play at projecting power through deploying its troops as human shields with the limited effect of prolonging conflict between active parties, the USG appears to be doubling down on its attempts to warfight through spending on moral, recreation, and welfare.
Naturally the USG's ability to carry out this sort of image campaign has declined substantially from Dubya Bush bringing professional wrestling to Baghdad shortly after his invasion to this year's enlisted band and church donation box offerings (archived). Increasing expenditures and years of "progress" are showing markedly reduced USG capacity even when it comes to producing targetted propaganda for their captive audience back home.
A Saudi Air Force Lieutenant assigned to US Naval Air Station Pensacola reportedly killed 3 and wounded 8 before being gunned down by local police (archived).
Six Ten other Saudi nationals were taken into custody (archived). Three of the detained Saudis allegedly filmed the assault. The late Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani published something resembling a manifesto on Twitter declaring his hatred for American crimes against Muslims and humanity several hours before commencing his attack.
Alshamrani was 9 months away from completing a three year "Foreign Military Sales training program" purchased by the Saudi government.
Turkey has reportedly begun testing their new Russian made S-400 anti-aircraft systems to much consternation from the USG (archived). USG relations with their NATO ally Turkey have been eroding for some time. Turkey was ejected from the USG and Israel lead F-35 program for finding relatively inexpensive Russian made missiles to be a better value than gravely expensive jets with dubious stealth performance.
