In the early hours of Wednesday, Iran fired rockets at two air bases in Iraq that house US troops. Iran says the attack was retaliation for the killing of top military commander Qasem Soleimani.

In the early hours of Wednesday, Iran fired rockets at two air bases in Iraq that house US troops. Iran's supreme leader says the missile attack was "a slap in the face" for the US. President Trump says no one was killed and that Iran appears to be "standing down". The US announces "additional punishing sanctions" on Iran.

Strikes against US forces in Iraq could have been just the beginning of a major operation across the region if the US had . But on Thursday, Vice-President Mike Pence told Fox News that "on the president's direction we're going to remain vigilant".

Strikes against US forces in Iraq could have been just the beginning of a major operation across the region if the US had responded, a senior Iranian commander is reported as saying. Quoted by state TV, Amir Ali Hajizadeh said the only fitting revenge for Gen Qasem Soleimani's killing by the US was to drive US forces from the region. Five things to note from Trump's Iran speech.

The Iraqi government must work to end the presence of any foreign troops on Iraqi soil and prohibit them from using its land, airspace or water for any reason. According to Press TV, some Western military presence may remain for training purposes. The resolution says Iraqi military leadership has to report the number of foreign instructors that are necessary for Iraqi national security.

Iraqi officials say the Iranian strikes, involving at least a dozen ballistic missiles, caused no American or Iraqi casualties. President Trump issued an upbeat appraisal. Iraqi military officials said that Iran had fired 22 missiles at two military bases in Iraq where American troops are stationed. United States officials initially said there were no immediate indications of American casualties, and senior Iraqi officials later said that there were no American or Iraqi casualties in the strikes.

American troops are in Iraq at the invitation of the Iraqi government . US-led coalition troops in Iraq have also suspended all training operations and hunkered down at fortified bases, bracing for retaliatory strikes.

American troops are in Iraq at the invitation of the Iraqi government, according to the legal agreement between Baghdad and Washington. Presumably, if Baghdad withdrew that invitation, the United States would have to withdraw. Influential Iraqi cleric Muqtada al-Sadr stated in a letter that Iraq should go further and shut down the US embassy. Washington claims the assassination of Soleimani was an act of self-defense justified by his planning of attacks on American citizens. and from Sputnik News

The killing of Qasem Soleimani marks a major escalation in tensions between Washington and Tehran. Iran's most powerful military commander, Gen Qasem Soleimani, has been killed by a US air strike in Iraq. The 62-year-old spearheaded Iranian military operations in the Middle East as head of Iran's elite Quds Force. Mr Trump said the general was "directly and indirectly responsible for the deaths of millions of people". Soleimani's killing marks a major escalation in tensions between Washington and Tehran.

This policy resulted in the US military invasion and occupation of Iraq. Another thing that's breathtaking about this book is the amount of new stories and new information. Scott describes in detail and with named sources, basically, a two or three-year run of the American government undercutting the inspection process. Shortly before the Iraq War began, the US government announced that 49 countries were joined in a "coalition of the willing" in favor of forcibly removing Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq, with some number of other countries expressing their support in private.
