UPDATE: US military: Iran has launched "more than a dozen ballistic missiles" to at least two Iraqi military bases hosting US military and coalition personnel at al-Assad and Erbil. https://t.co/Ff9ODXVMSv— NBC News (@NBCNews) January 8, 2020
. Icymi T45 assassinated Soleimani, a top military official for the sovereign nation of Iran under the pretense that Soleimani was going harm people, the details of which have not been provided to Congress or the public
. As expected, Iran has retaliated, launching more than a dozen ballistic missiles at 2 (two) Iraqi military bases housing US troops
. One of the bases, Ain al-Asad air base, was visited by T45 last year
. Media reports and political twitter are crazy pants. Official media has not confirmed the extent of damage to the bases or any casualties.
. T45 was going to address the nation then he decided not to and is probably watching Hannity on Faux News so he knows what to say next
. No one from the administration is officially addressing the attack. No one. Not the taxpayer paid Press Secretary who hasn't held a press conference in 300+ days. Not the SecDef. Not the SoS. No one.

Actor Jeffrey Wright
The 'Sons of bitches,' 'Low IQ,' 'Go back to your own country,' 'Filthy,' 'Scum' 'President' of the United States has called on Americans to turn on each other. This is indisputable, googleable fact. When has he worked to unify?— Jeffrey Wright (@jfreewright) January 8, 2020
