Lloyd Austin Warns Iran: We’ll Strike Back “At Time & Place Of Our Own Choosing”
Very much akin to the events which led to the January 2020 drone strike against IRGC Quds Force chief Qassem Soleimani as well as its aftermath, we are now witnessing a rapidly escalating tit-for-tat series of attacks between US and Iran-backed forces in Iraq. Last Wednesday the Pentagon confirmed a major attack involving at least ten rockets fired on the the Ain al-Asad airbase in Iraq’s Anbar province – where American troops are stationed. 

While a US Coalition statement last week cited “no significant
