US military official confirms 'self-defense strike' in Iraq


A "self-defense strike" was carried out in northern Iraq against a drone launch site, a U.S. military official said, after an air strike killed five pro-Iranian militants there.

"A self-defense strike was carried out on a drone staging site," the official said on condition of anonymity. It took place "in the vicinity of Kirkuk" and targeted "an imminent threat", he added.

The US eventually abandoned Vietnam and Afghanistan.

You’re right on this one Chris. I think they will abandon Ukraine next.
