With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

Battle damage at U.S. base in Iraq after Iran's missile attack

In an exclusive report from an airbase where the US soldiers are based in Iraq, CNN described the extent of the damage to the base from Iran's missiles as unimaginable.

The US claimed that no one was killed which is a bit hard to imagine considering the battle damage.

An Iranian military report suggested that nine planes were needed to transfer the dead and wounded to hospitals in Israel.  If this was true then it is clear that the Pentagon did not want to transport the dead and wounded back to the US.  I've seen a couple of reports indicating that 80 were killed and about 200 wounded.

Do we really expect the US military to tell us the truth?  

Who knows for sure - time will tell?  Eventually someone will talk and we will learn more about this whole tragic incident that was brought on by the needless and provocative US assassination of Iran's Gen. Qasem Soleimani who was sent to Iraq on a diplomatic mission.
