US President Donald Trump has responded with a tweet about the Iranian rocket attack on air bases in Iraq.

More than a dozen Iranian rockets were launched at two air bases in Iraq today in retaliation for the US assassination of General Qassem Soleimani on Friday.
“All is well!” Mr Trump tweeted.

“Missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in Iraq. Assessment of casualties and damages taking place now.

“So far, so good!

“We have the most powerful and well equipped military anywhere in the world, by far!

“I will be making a statement tomorrow morning.”

Mr Trump had been reported to make a televised statement hours ago, but the White House Press Secretary confirmed that would not take place.

All Australian personnel in Iraq are safe following the Iranian rocket attack.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison confirmed that diplomatic and Defence Force personnel in Iraq are all safe and accounted for in the attack.
The two bases targeted are Ain Assad in central Iraq, and Irbil in Kurdistan.

  1. Wow ! Is it possible ? Mr. Trump thinks before he tweets? Ah yes, if the USA accepts that Iran needed some ‘retaliation’ (for home consumption) and let it be on that then disaster could be averted. once more. We pray for sanity … (for all concerned)

  2. Yes, these US air bases are so huge, that without exact targetting any rocket could easily just hit some empty spaces in between.

  3. Trump is wise president. He told us before that he does not want war with Iran, too many people will die.

    He is a good Christian, love your enemy and pray for them.
    He killed Sulaiman because he was extremist intolerant Shiah who hates Christian and Jews. Sulaiman wanted to kill US citizen. That is why Trump to kill him for defending himself.

  4. You make happy. You are used to hate Trump policy, now you seem to be Trump’s supporter.

    You realize that I am right on Trump.

    • sometimes he even does the right thing. sometimes he even tells the truth (not too often). That does not mean I believe he is a saint now.
