US military learns about Iranian strike in 2,5 hours

The American media reported the details of Iran’s missile attack on US military facilities in Iraq.

CNN, citing a source in the US Armed Forces, reported that the command of the American contingent was warned of an attack by Iran two and a half hours before it began.

This made it possible to shelter part of the military in bunkers on the territory of bases and facilities, and part - to withdraw beyond.

According to the interlocutor, only the time of the beginning of the attack was known, but no one knew in what form it would be carried out.

CNN also cites the opinion of Lt. Col. Stacy Coleman, who considers the absence of casualties among US troops a miracle: a number of hits came near the bunkers where the soldiers were hiding.

Also, the television station’s editors, referring to information received from Arab diplomatic circles, reports that Iran has warned the US military which particular objects will be shelled.

Recall that the rocket attack on US military facilities in Iraq took place on January 8 at 01.30 and was Tehran’s response to the assassination of Al-Quds commander General Kassem Sulejmani, which the Americans carried out with a rocket near the capital of Iraq, Baghdad.

    I do not know what to say at all, if it is true, of course. Some kind of circus. One thing I know, at least one American citizen would die, the headlines would be different now.

    And if they announce a nuclear strike on the territory of the United States, I wonder where would they all scatter? It’s cold to the north, to the south - a self-built wall ...
    Running and pole vaulting can get a powerful boost in the USA ...
    Although the wall may prove as effective as their quick global strike ...
    It looks like many effective managers have returned "home" ...
    Satisfied with the trend ...

    US to believe - do not respect yourself! They go crazy! So that Americans refuse to advertise their air defense? Yes I DO NOT BELIEVE! Most likely, the USA screwed up with its air defense! And invent fairy tales that there are no losses. And who will check? They control everything in Iraq.

    In this context, Sivkov explained why the States conceal losses after Iran’s strikes at their bases, noting that in this way the Americans are trying to save face and avoid a large-scale war, which could ultimately openly demonstrate the weakness of the American military machine, since
    The United States was not ready for attacks from a third world country.
    “The losses could have been not as large as the Iranians claim - 80 people were killed and 10 wounded,” Sivkov said. At the same time, he noted that in this situation, an indirect proof of significant losses of the American army in manpower is the fact that following the Iranian missile strike, the leadership of the airbase in Iraq "requested additional medical support capacity." This circumstance, according to the expert, indicates that local doctors could not independently cope with the consequences of rocket attacks on the Iranians ...
